About my work
ABout Taaye Wong
Being born in Hong Kong, I have always been enthralled by birds (and art) from a young age. I particularly cultivated a fondness for cockatoos after discovering a duo of them perched atop a tree at the basketball court next to my school. Whenever they appeared and flew around our school grounds, I would hurry around in search of the ideal spot to watch them. In a rigorous and disciplined school setting, these cockatoos became one of the few things I felt attached to and eagerly anticipated seeing each day.
Despite journeying to various places, relocating to Canada, and studying at the Rhode Island School of Design in the United States, my adoration for birds has remained a constant in my life – through all my highs and lows. At home, I have been living with my Quaker parrot for approximately twenty years now, and I have been so fortunate to observe his highs and lows too – every emotion and quirk up close.
