Wan-Yi Lin and Roger Chen have been collaborating under the studio name "Mizzonk" for a number of years.   Their work evoke the senses and stimulate the relationship between one's inner world and its connection to one's outer world. Both artists believe that a person's relationships with others and with the world start with an introspective view and the exploration of one’s inner self.

Subjects in Mizzonk's art include consciousness, introspection, human nature, the human condition, memories, and identity.

In stripped- down, minimal and timeless appearance, Mizzonk's art invites the viewer to engage. It creates conversation, invites imagination and calls for contemplation.
