Tony Hong was born in 1977 and received a BFA in psychology from UCLA in 2000.
He works exclusively in ink in the pursuit to explore every possibility of the exhaustive medium. A self-proclaimed ‘simple line maker,’ Hong nonetheless aims to maximize on every stroke.
The immense detail he brings to each illustration is a compulsion, says Hong. ‘My work needs to leave him completely exhausted if I am to attain a sense of relief.’
His work has been exhibited in Los Angeles, his hometown.
