Sheng Wang

Savannah, GA
Born in Yichang, China, Sheng Wang (M.F.A., painting) imagines a moment when humanity is usurped by its own technology. Drawn from his lifelong obsession with video games, his artwork investigates the medium as an expansion of the physical world, reflecting on the persuasive power of simulated reality to shape facets of his life. The pleasure, addiction and level of achievement that rewards players provide the conceptual framework for his paintings.
