Starry Kong is a Melbourne-based visual artist who was born in Kunming, China. She obtained an Honours degree in photography from RMIT University, Australia in 2020. Starry is interested in the intangible and inexpressible sentiments that are characteristic to humankind. She explores this phenomenon through her own experiences of loss, grief, alienation and her long-term mental illness, which has become the foundation and origin of her creative practice. Starry uses photography as the primary medium to express her inner feelings and thoughts, while metaphor and symbolisation constitutes her visual art language.
Starry Kong 出⽣於中國昆明，是⼀位⽣活在墨爾本的視覺藝術家。 她獲得了澳⼤利亞皇家墨爾本理⼯⼤學攝影榮譽學位。 Starry著迷於⼈類所特有的、無法捉摸也無從表達的情感。 她通過⾃⼰的得失、痛苦、疏離與⻑年精神疾病的經歷來探索這種現象，並奠定了她創作實踐的基礎和根源。Starry以攝影為主要媒介來表達她內⼼的感受和想法，⽽隱喻和象徵則成為了她的視覺藝術語⾔的重要構成。
