Artist

Frank Yefeng Wang

Frank Wang Yefeng works across various media, including 3D animation, video installation, sculpture, and writing. His migratory experience at a young age drives him to explore his reality as a multicultural individual. The estrangement of the origin and the absence of home turn “in-betweenness” into his constant dwelling. Ambivalent characters play essential roles in Yefeng’s works, where he explores the transmission of affect and the in-between states of nomadic subjects in both virtual and physical realms.

Frank Wang Yefeng has exhibited work at BRIC Biennial, Brooklyn; Hyundai Motorstudio Beijing, China; and Vanguard Gallery, Shanghai, among others.
