The Art of Boy Kong

June 07, 2016

Boy Kong is a self-taught painter, illustrator, muralist, and collage artist whose neon-candy-colored works combine the angular sensibility of cubist masters with the contemporary fluidity of japanese prints and freshness of urban graffiti.

Based in Orlando, Florida, Boy Kong is inspired by a mixture of Ukiyo-e, Surrealism, Graffiti, and animal folklore. Kong's visual style juxtaposes these elements with a mastery of color and rhythmic application. In short time his body of work has become immediately identifiable without succumbing to a signature aesthetic. Kong divides his time between Orlando and NYC. He is represented by Gitler &_____ in New York.
