Wai Ming LUNG was born in Hong Kong in 1970. As a child, he was already a fan of drawing and created his own comic strips at age 10. A Jack of all trades with an insatiable curiosity, he trained at the Arts Décoratifs de Paris where he was introduced to painting, graphic design, textile design and photography.

He then became a stylist in haute couture, before turning to advertising at the dawn of the digital era. A creative director within major communication agencies (B2L/ BBDO, Futurebrand, Ogilvy and DDB), he also founded his own design studio in the 2000s. As well as an art director, Wai Ming was also a pioneer in food blogging and subsequently worked as a teacher, lecturer and consultant within the food and wine industry.

In 2019, he decided to return to the arts, combining his passion for painting and boxing. SHDWBXG is his first artistic project.

Wai Ming LUNG lives, paints and boxes in Paris, France.
