Tori Hong is a visual artist whose work investigates the threads between personal, inter-generational, and community healing. Hong creates art for and with marginalized communities in the struggle for social justice and liberation. The people Hong centers in their work are LGBTQ Asian Americans.
In order to create meaning out of the often ambiguous, disrupted, and generative spaces they occupy, Hong creates narrative-driven drawings, murals, and zines.
In their free time, Hong likes to hike along the North Shore and cuddle their two cats.
