Wai Wong studied Filmmaking at Temple University, Philadelphia, USA. An unexpected encounter with etching urged him to pause his career in filmmaking and advertisement production in Hong Kong, and took a detour to move to UK to study printmaking. After Wai graduated from MA printmaking in Middlesex University, he was accepted as a printmaking fellow by City and Guilds of London Art School. And now he is a part time print room tutor in City and Guilds. In 2021, Wai is elected by Royal Society of Painter-Printmaker as an associate member.
