Benjamin Von Wong

Von Wong is a Canadian artist who has gained recognition for creating powerful images that carry important environmental and social messages, combining fantasy, surrealism, and environmental themes. Some of his most notable projects include underwater photoshoots with models among shipwrecks, epic portraits of people in extreme and challenging environments, and artistic collaborations aimed at raising awareness about plastic pollution and electronic waste. In 2021, Von Wong created the #TurnOffThePlasticTap (also known as the #GiantPlasticTap) project to bring awareness to the volume of plastics being dumped into our oceans. The following year, he was invited to recreate the tap in Kenya for the United Nations Environmental Assembly where UN member states decided to adopt a landmark mandate to develop a legally binding global Plastics Treaty with a full life cycle approach.
