LIVES AND WORKS
Born and bred in Singapore, Phyllis Wong has lived and worked in Singapore, Los Angeles, London and currently resides in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. She is a trained architect and graduated from the avant-garde and renowned Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc). After practising architecture in Los Angeles and London, she moved to Rotterdam and subsequently became an entrepreneur and a mother. It is during this move when she observed the Dutch's lack of food culture and appreciation. Hence she set up a catering company. Phyllis began preaching the importance of supporting local growers and sustainable eating while continuing her creativity by honing her skills in stunning food presentations. In 2019, she embarked on her journey as a multi-disciplinary artist. Currently, she leads a unique artistic career combining her experiences and knowledge from the architecture realm and the food industry.
Phyllis Wong is an artist and an architect with an eloquent eye for tiny details and a flair for spatial quality. She focuses on food-related and sustainability-driven subjects. Steered by the urge to manifest daily facts into a visual pleasure, Phyllis aims to translate data and information into contemporary and witty creations. Her series of work always combines and connects food-related themes with an appropriate spatial characteristic or a matching location. Within every framework lies her strong and vibrant composition skills; combined with an adequate sense of aesthetic balance and harmony. This form of art direction and distinctive approach aims to glorify her ideas to achieve a unique 'Gesamtkunstwerk'; a total work of art. The medium of her work ranges from colleges, photography, objects and events.
