Matthew Wong

Matthew Wong (1984, Toronto, Canada; 2019, Edmonton, Canada) è stato un artista canadese autodidatta i cui paesaggi dall'estetica vibrante evocano lo spirito di pittori post-impressionisti come Vincent van Gogh e Paul Sérusier. Con il suo stile inconfondibile, Wong ha sintetizzato forme, colori audaci e temi mistici, creando scene ricche ed evocative che spesso trasmettono un desiderio malinconico. Le opere di Wong sono poesie visive che parlano della soggettività del colore e del potere degli archetipi universali. Nei suoi paesaggi la natura è la protagonista principale, animata da una vitalità che trascende il tempo e lo spazio. Attraverso audaci pennellate di colore e minimi dettagli, Wong crea scene che risuonano di malinconica tenerezza e umorismo, trasmettendo gli ineffabili stati dell'essere che abitano l'esperienza umana. 


Il lavoro di Wong è conservato in importanti collezioni pubbliche in tutto il mondo, tra cui il Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museo d'Arte Moderna, New York; Museo Guggenheim, New York; Museo d'arte di Dallas, Texas; Fondazione Aïshti, Beirut; Collezione Esteé Lauder, New York; Galleria d'arte dell'Ontario, Ontario.
