Wong Ping’s cheeky character sets the scene for the Lounge.

His work pairs an apparent innocence with a sinister undertone in a vividly coloured and dreamlike world that reflects modern society while alluding to social and political issues.

Wong Ping (b. 1984, Hong Kong) is an animator and graphic designer who has been releasing video works since 2010. Wong won the top prize at the 2nd Shenzhen Independent Animation Biennial in 2014. In 2020, he was nominated for an Ammodo Tiger Short Competition Award at International Film Festival Rotterdam and the Short Film Grand Jury Prize at Sundance Film Festival.
