Wenting Li is an illustrator & inveterate reader working out of Toronto. Her practice includes painting, murals, comics-making and community arts programming, all with a preoccupation for colour, shape & the subtleties of complementing diversity in story with representation and image. She is especially interested in following the thread of pathos, chaos, and the inexplicable that runs through the momentous/ mundane of everyday life: falling asleep, looking in a mirror, human migration, digital privacy, crossing a field.
