Bio

Katy Wang is an award-winning animation director who brings playful characters to life through bold colours and textural brush strokes. Her work plays with the senses in a way that lends an authentically human feel to all of her visuals: a lonely astronaut in outer space; a sleepy bear riding atop a giant dog; elephants dancing and patterns alive - her work is both joyously playful yet weaved with emotion.
During her first year of study at Kingston University, Katy created 'Mind the Gap', a short film that went on to screen in festivals worldwide and won two awards for ‘best experimental animation’. Later, It's Nice That named her one of its Graduates of 2017 for her graduation film, ‘Contact’. Since then she’s made work for clients such as Penguin Books, Youtube, Absolut, Meta, Macmillan, and The New York Times.
