Kong Chun Nga (Kitty) is based in Hong Kong. She graduated with a BAFA from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University (co-presented with Hong Kong Art School) in 2017 and with an MA in English (Literary Studies) from The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2020. She paints as she slides through fragmented everyday life; her writing commemorates, although some regard it as general fiction.

Her works have been exhibited in Hong Kong, Spain, and Japan. In the past, she has participated in workshops and residency programs in Italy, Spain and Finland. She is the recipient of the MA in ELS Academic Excellence Award (2020) and Reaching Out Award (2017), while her work is collected by Bleak House Books and private collectors.

With a passion for literature and films, she has created artworks for book covers, movies, and poems for Bleak House Books, HK Film Critics Society, and CUHK Press.
