CLarissa Wong (born 1990) grew up in Singapore.
My art is composed of botany, animals and human figures.
I am exploring what the earth has to offer through my art, seeing nature in different aspects and interpreting in my own creative worlds. I am not implying that my art correctly portrays nature, however, it is my interpretation of a naïve-untouched world. I am drawn to mother nature in every aspect and how it can vary from one place to another. Experiencing the differentiations of their origins, whether this maybe a plant life or an animal. We are visitors of the earth. I want people to be aware without being too obvious about the problems of our environment. If the species cannot adapt along with us they will become extinct. I am trying to combine my passions and fantasies on the canvas by addressing problems that we are facing.
