Raymond Yeung

Artist | New York City, USA Yeung spent the 90s in colonial Hong Kong studying aging, cross-culturalism and globalism. In the 2000s he moved to sunny California to further his studies but ended up with a fine arts degree some 9 years late. While pursuing his interest in the arts he continued his exploration of the human condition, which led him to New York. Yeung has since expanded his research to include a variety of other subject matter ranging from quantum singularities to cockroach social behavior. In the near future he plans on publishing his ideas in a 99 volume compendium in digital form, which will be immediately placed in a time capsule and shot into space upon its completion. As for now, Yeung finds solace in art and writing.
