The wonderful world of Shang Shang Wang

From Standing Room Only, 12:50 pm on 21 December 2014

There is a lot to like about Shang Shang (Cookie) Wang. Hailing from Hunan Province, as a teenager she was sent to New Zealand to get a better education. Now based in Auckland, the artist says she has always loved to draw and paint, despite having had allergies to paint as a child. But her parents supported her obsession, which saw her creating daily artworks on the floor of her family home; her parents washing away her artwork away at the end of the day to create space for the next day's creation.
