Wenjia Wang was born in China. She moved to the United States alone when she was 17th. Wang has been passionate about art since a very young age, she had been practicing traditional Chinese calligraphy from a very young age, which is considered fundamental for traditional Chinese ink brush painting, later it developed a distinct quality of my work which involves ink drawing lines.
Wenjia Wang got her BFA in illustration from the School of Visual Arts in 2018. And got her MFA degree in illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
Wang is a member of the Society of Illustrators and she was awarded in professional illustration competitions, which include 3X3 Magazine, American Illustration, Graphics, and MoCCA. Wang's clients include Huawei, independent musicians, galleries, and local businesses.
Now Wenjia uses both traditional and digital media. She coloring her work digitally, she always wanted to have a bright, refreshing, tender color palette, which usually catches audience’s eyes easily, but if the audience took another look into her image, they would find that her work isn’t just a frivolous colorful image but trying to deliver messages that can make people think or relate to. Wang believes it is fun to attract the audience's attention by a playful color palette and then shock them by the message that is delivered through the story telling.
