Born in the Guangdong Province, China, Ip Wai Lung is a local artist residing in Hong Kong now. In 1996, he moved to Hong Kong with his mother for a family reunion with his father right before the handover. As an immigrant, identity has always been an issue for him despite being educated in Hong Kong since his young age. In 2015, he went to Tibet to practise Zen Buddhism, such experience further confirmed his determination of becoming an artist.

Ip is a self-learned artist who has participated in a number of local co-exhibitions and held personal exhibitions including Para Site,  1aspace and C&G. His artwork explores political issues, taboos and identities in a spontaneous and humorous fashion. Ip believes in the power of public art, he interferes in the existing social systems with his artwork, through the conversations with different entities he delves into the possibility of having new systems in a bid to reconstruct the imagination of society and the world from a personal perspective. He produces with various media including performance, photographs and videos.
