Eric Fong is a visual artist based in London. He was born in Hong Kong and educated in Canada and the UK, where he gained an MA in Fine Art from Goldsmiths College, University of London. His artwork includes film, photography and sculpture.
Fong’s art practice explores issues relating to the body, identity and difference, informed by his experience as a former medical doctor. His recent work explores notions of biological and social identity in the context of forensic human identification.
Fong’s work has been exhibited across the UK and internationally, including EAST International, Norwich; London Group Open and Creekside Open, London; International 3 Gallery and Chinese Arts Centre, Manchester; Gallery 44 Centre for Contemporary Photography, Toronto; Ludwig Museum of Contemporary Art, Budapest; and numerous international short film festivals.
