FACE (>) FIFTY
Boy Kong returns to Chinatown Soup to celebrate the holiday season with mylar and tigers from his Face Fifty series.
Boy Kong (b. 1993) is a self-taught painter, illustrator, muralist, and collage artist. Inspired by a mixture of Ukiyo-e, Surrealism, Graffiti art, and animal folklore, Kong's visual style juxtaposes these elements with a mastery of color and rhythmic application. In short time his body of work has become immediately identifiable without succumbing to a signature aesthetic. Kong divides his time between Orlando and NYC.
In 2015, Boy Kong blessed Soup’s front gate with its beloved mural and headlined our first in-house exhibition, LAWLESS.
