Kristen Liu-Wong is an illustrator, painter and mixed media artist. Since graduating from the Pratt Institute, Kristen has been putting out some pretty undeniable signature art and getting plenty of attention because of it. Her body of work is significant and spans a series of mediums - oil & resined paintings, illustrations, silkscreens, self-published zines, embroidery, glassware and videos. Her themes often reflect a blend of brightly colored folk art, bizarre narratives, sex and violence.
