Poyen Wang was born in 1987, Taichung, Taiwan. His practice utilizes digital media as a primary medium to examine how the archived memories in the digital realm affect our perception of reality, and how synthetic identities oscillate between the fabricated and the authentic, the performed and the documented, the private and the public. He received his master’s degree in New Media Art from Taipei National University of the Arts in 2015, and his second master’s degree at the School of Visual Arts with a Paula Rhodes Award in Computer Art in 2017. His works won the Gold Medal Award at Taiwan National Art Exhibition, the Excellence Award in Asia Digital Art Award in Japan, and were selected to Made in Taiwan - Young Artist Discovery in Art Taipei. He completed the AIM program at the Bronx Museum of the Arts and was an artist-in-resident at Flux Factory in New York City in 2018. Later he was funded by the Ministry of Culture in Taiwan for his residency at the 18 streets Arts Center in Los Angeles. He is currently an artist-in-resident in Bamboo Curtain Studio in Taipei, Taiwan.
