Born in Hawaii, Jasper Wong was exposed to a beautiful natural landscape growing up, yet left to pursue his passions in illustrations, drawing and art when given the first opportunity. After a 10-year absence, Wong returned to Hawaii to contribute to the burgeoning art scene, which it seems, had also grown while he was away. Amongst the many projects (POW WOW being among the largest) he has contributed to his home state, Wong initiated “The Little Shop of Wonder,” which rather magically transformed a storefront into an oversized coloring book. In the latest video piece from The Avant/Garde Diaries, the online magazine briefly interviews Wong about the simple joys of analog techniques, and what has inspired him over the years. Enjoy the video piece above while check out his recent Essentials.
