About the Print Instructor
Pudy Tong’s memories of his immigrant Canadian childhood are punctuated by the images of large stacks of Chinese newspapers landing on his family’s doorstep every two weeks, air-freighted in from Hong Kong to a small rural town in British Columbia. His print-based art practice draws on elements from journalism as the subject through which our experience of contemporary, media-saturated society is refracted, reinterpreted and re-imagined. He received his BFA from the University of British Columbia Okanagan and an MFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University. Based in Toronto, he works as an instructor and custom printer at Open Studio with a focus in photo-lithography. He has had the privilege of creating prints with artists from a wide range of artistic disciplines including Jenn Law, Erika DeFreitas and Kotama Bouabane.
