Jason Yung is a New York-based Canadian new media artist working primarily in light, using LEDs, but also using other mediums. 

Working with new media since 2016, Yung aims to bring together the visual principles of traditional painting with new media. Yung looks at painting the same way David Bowie did -- that is, everything is painting. 

Art is Yung’s second career. Previously, he was a Canadian diplomat. His experiences serving in the Afghan war led to his career change to art. Yung has strong interests in psychology, philosophy and spirituality.

Yung graduated from NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) in 2019.
