"Andrew Wong, aka 10past9, began working with cardboard boxes as a fun activity with his children an escape from the emotional stay-at-home order brought by the COVID-19 pandemic. This play turned into passion as he explored iterating these cut-out designs and models into more intricate forms. Using patterns of card stock within patterns of his subjects' facial features,
His work elegantly transforms simple materials into complicated portraiture, relief sculptures of deep lines, hidden surfaces, articulate shadows, and illuminated hues for the viewer to explore.
Andrew holds a BFA in Fashion Design from Parsons School of Design."
