Wenting Li is an artist, illustrator & inveterate reader working out of Tkaronto/ Toronto. Her practice includes drawing & painting, ceramics, murals, comics-making and community arts programming, all with a preoccupation for colour, form, and narrative. 

Wenting is especially interested in the subtleties of complementing diversity in story with representation and image. Her work seeks to visualize the ephemeral space where broader spheres (science, mythos, mystery) intersect and extend our human experiences: interconnection, online life, migration, the routines of the everyday.
