Born in a generation absorbed with graphic novels, comics, digital worlds, animation and gaming, Wu Qiong's distinctive cartoon style resonates well with the current generations. In his artwork, we can see that the characters all have their eyes closed and mouths agape with upturned faces which depicts living in dreams where havoc unfold. Wu Qiong hopes to tap upon this notion through the recurring use of this facial expression, allowing viewers to draw their own associations with the different scenarios presented in his works.

|Interviewing Wu Qiong|
Being just a young age of 34, Wu Qiong's paintings have already been acquired by the Beijing Poly International Auction, the biggest auction house in China.

The talented Eleanor shared with us how she was taught to be daring and expressive with her artwork, thus she straight away painted on the canvas without any draft.
Quan Yi Fong mentioned how Eleanor used 2 weeks using Wu Qiong's material to learn and completed the two art pieces.
Mark Lee even shared how much he admires Wu Qiong's artwork that he was already a proud owner of two of his paintings. One was even too big to be hang on the wall and have to be mounted on the ceiling.
Happy to be able to attend such function. Refreshments served was yummy and a wefie with the pretty Meryl. Recently, I've started to appreciate art even more and have even started the popular Secret Garden Colouring Book by Johanna Basford given to me by Jessie. Glad to have so many great friends who think of me ever so often. Thank you!
