About the Artist: Making art described as “eye candy” by one critic, Boy Kong (born 1993 in Orlando, Florida) is one of the rising stars of the growing art scene in Florida. A self-taught artist, Boy is often inspired by Asian folklore and traditions, and his works are fused with a surrealistic sensibility. Some of his recent work includes a solo show at Gitler &_____ (New York) and murals created for Rag & Bone and Secret Walls/The L.I.S.A. Project. For more, see his website or follow him on Instagram.
