Wong Ka Man was born in Hong Kong and he graduated from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University’s Hong Kong Community College with a major in visual communication and design in 2015 before obtaining a degree in fine arts from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2017. Wong focuses on exploring the relationship between human and ego through the use of everyday images found in the natural environment. Through this meditation, she reveals how this generation sees itself. Wong has participated in various exhibitions including exchange exhibition “Experimental Drawing” co-presented by The Chinese University of Hong Kong and Zurich University of the Arts (2017), student show “White Noise” presented by the Faculty of the Arts of The Chinese University of Hong Kong and student show “Soda Water” presented by the Faculty of Arts at The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
 
Artwork Statement
Repetition of day-to-day life weighs me down. It feels like I were frozen and trapped in time. Then I saw a local playground in a random neighbourhood. At that moment, the scene of the playground and the tiny, yet familiar space, felt surreal to me. It took me away from my current state and led me back to my past, my memories. It was a tense relationship between self, place, and time. It was warm and tingly.
