Pudy Tong’s (he/him) memories of his immigrant childhood are punctuated by the images of large stacks of Chinese newspapers landing on his family’s doorstep every two weeks, shipped in from Vancouver to a small rural town in British Columbia. His print-based art practice draws on elements from journalism as the subject through which our experience of contemporary, media-saturated society is refracted, reinterpreted and re-imagined. He received his BFA from the University of British Columbia Okanagan and an MFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University. He works out of Open Studio in Toronto and spends just a little too much time scrolling Doge Social (Twitter).
