Christina Wong (b. 1995, Nassau, The Bahamas) is a mixed-media artist and cultural worker, intrigued with psychology. In 2012, she received the 'E. clement Bethel National Arts Festival' award for a special recipient of arts & crafts in the country. Wong then graduated in 2016 from The College of The Bahamas with an Associate's in Art, and from Lee University in 2018 with a BFA in painting. She exhibited a collaborative installation for the 2016 National Exhibition 8 (NE8) curated by Holly Bynoe at The National Art Gallery of The Bahamas. Wong received Honorable Mention for the Central Bank Competition in 2019 for her piece inspired by Hurricane Dorian, "Everybody and Dey Grammy #hurricanedorian." From 2015 to 2020, she curated exhibitions for The Chan Pratt Foundation and Transforming Spaces in 2015 and 2016 for the formerly known College of The Bahamas.
Wong is passionate about continual personal improvement and development as an artist. She made it her mission to advocate for mental health and bring awareness through her artwork. Along with creating a space for those navigating psychological health, she makes work that features the routine of everyday life. Though Wong has a mixed ancestral background, she resonates more with her Bahamian heritage and pays homage to the cultural richness of her Eleutheran family, who were farmers. Exhibiting her artwork both locally and internationally, some of her works are a part of the Dawn Davies Collection and can be found in The Love & Responsibility 2 edition. She currently works in the creative industry at The Current: Baha Mar Gallery and Art Center as the Curatorial and Design coordinator.
