Sophia Hotung is a 28-year-old, Eurasian writer, illustrator, and digital artist from Hong Kong. Originally a tech analyst and product manager, she pivoted to digital art in 2021 when her autoimmune diseases made it impossible to continue her corporate career.
Hotung is the artist behind The Hong Konger collection, which has been exhibited at the Affordable Art Fair, Soho House, Eaton Hong Kong, the Wild Lot, Oi Ling Antiques, Young Soy Gallery, and Art Next Expo. This year, she served as K11 ARTUS’s artist in residence and sold her first NFT through Sotheby’s at the Digital Art Fair, where she donated proceeds to The Women’s Foundation Hong Kong.
Hotung’s work funds and supports advocacy and education initiatives for chronic disability issues, women’s rights, and the representation of Hong Kong in art and literature.
