Canadian Artist W.W. Hung

W.W. Hung establishes poignant human narratives in cast bronze and resin. His dynamic figures possess powerful spatial presence, using the human form as a threshold of identification. W.W. Hung studied architecture at the University of Waterloo, where he earned a Bachelor of Environmental Studies and a Bachelor of Architecture. After graduation, W.W. Hung relocated to New York City, where he worked with several leading design firms. In 2004, he became a Member of the American Institute of Architects and in 2015, a Member of the Sculptors Society of Canada. Hung’s work is held in private collections in Canada, France and the US.
