About + Contact

Selena Wong is an illustrator and artist, born in Hong Kong under the sign of the twins. Like the urban environment of her place of birth, Selena’s work reflects the petit surroundings, the places tucked away, forgotten, and removed from reality. Interested in superstition, folklore and the fantastical, Selena’s meticulously detailed translations of her daydreams and nightmares are both playful and disturbing. She currently works and lives in Toronto with her Netherland dwarf rabbit.
