Siyan Wong is primarily an oil painter whose socially-engaged art practice invites reflections and conversations into contradictions present in the everyday. Her subjects are the working poor, the homeless, and elderly. Using the beauty of colors, forms and figures, she depicts the lives of her subjects. She is an emerging artist with a vision that art is a beautiful medium to engage the public in conversations about social issues.Her current and on-going projects include "Five Cents A Can: Making Visible the Invisible.” It focuses on the people who survive on picking up cans and bottles (the "canners") and their existence in a city with abundance. She is also working on a project called “Home: With and Without" that focuses on privacy and intimacy that naturally occur in the homes and the psychological impact on those without a home.
