monica v. gong

Monica Victoria Gong is a mixed media artist based in the Bay Area, California and Chicago, Illinois.

In an effort to find her true voice, Monica's work focuses on reflection, the inner-self, and self-criticism. As a young person in 2019, she explores the way Generation Z is affected in a post-capitalist world, including but not limited to the age of social media, the rise of mental illness, the lack of nuclear family, and the impending climate crisis. 


Monica recently graduated with highest honors from Castro Valley High School in June 2019. She is currently attending the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in pursuit of her Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Studio.
