During the 1980s the Chinese government attempted to create their very own slanty-eyed Communist-loving Hulk Hogan. However, the experiment failed, and Jasper Wong was thus born. As a small child, Jasper spent much of his time attempting to grow chest hair through mental telepathy and Kung Fu chopping small babies with his dainty Asian fists. As years passed, he learned to accept his genetic hairless deformities, and instead focused his time drawing portraits of the A-Team. Today, Jasper Wong has a frosty illustration style that developed around an odd and unhealthy obsession with the color pink, Mr. T, and magical laser beams. Yet somehow it all combines into his own unique clash of Asian-influenced pop culture on paper.
Jasper has had shows in Japan, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, New York, France, London, Chicago, Mexico, Hawaii and Hong Kong and has been selected by Archive magazine as one of the 200 Best Illustrators worldwide two years in a row. He has also been recognized in prestigious publications such as Communication Arts, Society of Illustrators, American Illustration, Acclaim, and Taschen's Illustration Now.
