Through these inspiring interactions, students are not only exposed to cutting-edge techniques and innovative concepts but also encouraged to think critically, question norms, and broaden their artistic horizons. The series fosters an environment of intellectual curiosity, cultural enrichment, and creative growth, empowering students to evolve as both skilled artists and well-rounded individuals poised for success in the competitive world of contemporary art.
Annie Wong, a.k.a. Headexplodie is a mixed-media artist and storyteller known for cooking up playful eye candy in the form of sculptures, illustrations, and stop-motion animation.
Her work is a blend of delightful fun, oddball humor, with a touch of teenage rebellion, all rooted in her experience growing up as a second-generation Chinese American in South Texas.
Pee-Wee Herman once told her she was very talented and she’s been riding high on that achievement ever since then.
She is a Giphy Featured Artist with over 28 billion views and her Ovary Actions project has received global coverage. Clients include Adult Swim, Apple, The New York Times, Washington Post, Vans, Creative Mornings, Meta, Instagram, and The Greater Good Science Center. Annie holds a B.F.A. from California College of the Arts and a Master’s Degree in Animation from the Academy of Art University.
