Yifei Wang


Artist Statement

My photography practice explores myself as an anonymous observer, capturing fragments of strangers’ lives without their knowledge and exposing the candid moments of their daily routines. My work is influenced by my personal experiences living in Canada and the United States and constantly feeling like an outsider.

My drawing works focus on landscapes and plant life, often omitting human presence. I draw inspiration from personal memories and reference photographs, paying meticulous attention to detail and utilizing linework and mark-making to convey an emotional response to the subject matter.
