Chelsea Wong: Maximalist In Motion
ZINC contemporary, Seattle, WA - Feb 7 – 28
Having studied communication design in New York, San Francisco-based artistChelsea Wong flits between fine art and high-quality commercial illustration in the vein of Maira Kalman of The New Yorker. On the one hand, she has designed record album covers and birthday cards. At Zinc, she is chronicling street life in the Mission District (akin to Jacob Lawrence’s views of Harlem). Wong won a travel grant to Osaka,Japan, and in 2010 was a Hamaguchi Emerging Artist in Berkeley.
