W.W. Hung grew up in Toronto. He graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture and a Bachelor of Environmental Studies, University of Waterloo. After practicing architecture in New York for several years, William moved back to Toronto, and began creating sculptural works in a unique combination of the figurative and the abstract. He was elected into the SSC in 2015.
His work has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions including: Art Toronto; The Artist Project; Propeller Gallery; Nuit Blanche; Oeno Gallery; J.B. Aird Gallery; Latcham Gallery; Galerie Pierre Léon, and the Canadian Sculpture Centre, winning the Al & Malka Green Sculpture Award.
Hung’s work is included in public and private collections internationally. Large outdoor works include: Montcalm-Taché Park, Gatineau QC; Kingsbrae Garden, St Andrew, NB; Oeno Gallery, Prince Edward County, ON.
I create sculptural works and installations in a unique combination of the figurative and the abstract. Using materials both traditional and those less conventional (including resin, bronze, steel, wood, concrete, thread, fishing line and hooks), I make sculptures that convey the vulnerability, as well as the tenacity, of the human psyche. The works are an exploration of the human condition, where bodies find themselves in abstract compositions of almost clinical precision, and where souls seek equilibrium.
