Hong Kong artist Jasper Wong tell us more about his artworks and working process in this exclusive interview.
I don’t like to say nice words unless I really mean it.
That being said, Jasper Wong is one of the nicest, coolest, truest and funniest guy I’ve met in the past 10 years (don’t ask me why I chose 10).
If you are Australian and like footy, Jasper looks exactly the same like Bobby Hundreds (come on Bobby is a big black dude, isn’t he?).
But if you are Mega, Jasper looks like the awesome guy who get his artwork tattooed on the leg.
Fresh off the golden jet-plane flying from his Hong Kong-based gallery called Above Second, Jasper recently went to Melbourne where he was invited to paint at the Carbon event organized by Acclaim magazine.
I was doing my exhibition there too, as an official part of the event, and the whole thing was hosted at Federation Square.
I’m still wondering why we didn’t get more chicks with so much awesomeness…
The answer may be green and smokable.
Now while I think about a way to tell you more about his gallery, you should take a look at the beautiful artworks bellow.
I guess I need to do more posts about Jasper and his many activities.
Did I tell you about the Pow Wow event he organize in Hawai?

PLEASE INTRODUCE YOURSELF
I escaped from the womb with the name of Jasper Wong. I’m an artist, curator, writer, and I dabble in all sorts of tomfoolery.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR WORK?
Rainbows with a sprinkling of lasers and a dash of penis.
PLEASE SHARE WITH US YOUR WORKING PROCESS
Eat, shit, masturbate, and paint.
Just get down and dirty and don’t look back.
HOW DOES YOUR ENVIRONMENT INFLUENCE YOUR ART
My eyes are always open. I’m always looking and drawn to the most random bits of life. The environment is my biggest resource and lover.
WHO ARE YOUR INFLUENCES?
Just off the top of my head, I absolutely dig folk like:
and the list goes on and on. I’m constantly finding new influences.
ANY LAST WORD?
I love MEGA!
