Aileen Chong

Aileen Chong communicates through her paintings. Her background as a female Chinese Peruvian growing up in Long Island, New York, has played a significant role in her body of work. The values of American life intermixed with the customs of Peru and traditions of China created a divergent sense of self for Chong. A visual representation of her fractured sense of identity, her work is a dialogue about cultural fusion rooted in personal experiences.
