Wenting Li is an illustrator & inveterate reader working out of Toronto. Her practice includes painting, ceramics, murals, and comics-making, all with a preoccupation for colour, shape & the subtleties of complementing story with picture. She is especially interested in following the thread of whimsy, chaos, and the inexplicable that runs through the seemingly mundane parts of everyday life: falling asleep, looking in a mirror, a body in motion, digital privacy, crossing a field.
