Interview with 100FOR10 artist
Bryce Wong

with No Comments

Look, there is not much to say— ha ha; hu hu; ha ha; hu, yes who— that gets to the pinnacle of biography and
what it is— the static confinement of a woman, of a man, of Bryce Wong. There is the Bryce that uses ink and pens
and pencils, that is the Bryce on the supposed pedestal before you. But, mind you, there was a Bryce Wong in
California, a now-decrepit memory of his youth that has denigrated his experience of the present with childish remorse.
And this is the Bryce that we must dwell on for the time being.

 

 

1 What did you have for breakfast?

Pineapple, coffee, Pita and Hummus.

2 How about your entry into the industry, what was your first job?

I’ve never really been in the art industry. I’m currently getting my undergraduate degree in industrial design
but have worked at footwear brands like Vans and Greats as a designer.

 

 

3 How would you characterize your work?

Personally I don’t love to have my work characterized because I want to always be evolving.
My most current work can best be characterized as an analog take on digital art.

4 When did you start making art? Did you start with drawing or something else?

I’ve always liked to draw but my recent work started about a year ago. I only started because I was burnt out
on the formulaic drawing that I was being taught in school and I needed break out of that.

 

 

5 What would you say is your strongest skill and how have you honed that skills over the years?

My greatest skill is my inability to be patient. I often have obsessive compulsions to create.
Once I have an idea, my mind doesn’t let me do anything else.

6 In your opinion, is it important to incorporate cultural, social, or political topics in art? Can art make a change?

Art can definitely make a change. I do incorporate political/social aspects occasionally but for the most part,
when I draw, I use it as an escape from all that so More often than not, I’ll keep my drawings separate.

 

 

7 Is it important to you to be part of a creative community of people?

One of the biggest reasons I am still drawing so consistently is the amazing community of artists that support me
and motivate me. It is always nice to find a group of people with similar interests and talents to be able to connect with.

8 What is/was the best period in your life? Why?

I think that other than being 5 and not having to worry about anything at all, I’m living in the best period of my life so far.
I’m doing what I love, I’ve been given opportunities that I never thought I’d get and I’m happy and healthy.
Not much more I can ask for.

 

 

9 When did you felt embarrassed the last time?

I can’t remember the last time I was actually embarrassed. I think my brain blocked it out.

10 What kind of legacy do you hope to leave?

I hope people remember me as someone who worked hard and had fun while doing it. I hope I can inspire people to go out and do what they want to do.
