Chrissy Cheung has been the curator for the Painter8 Arts Society since its inception. In this work, she combines her knowledge as an artist who has shown in more than 50 exhibitions internationally with a vision for new contexts in which art can be effectively realized.
As a curator, she has been on hand to advocate and represent each Painter8 exhibition. She worked in collaboration with Galerie Cité, La Cité Francophone (Edmonton), and ModArt Gallery (Miami) to present artists in cities that are new to them. She has been interviewed on CFRO 100.5 FM local Vancouver radio, Creators Vancouver, and Stir Vancouver.
Cheung is also a Vancouver-based artist. Her abstract contemporary paintings and drawings have been exhibited at the Market Art and Design Fair in Bridgehampton, New York, and the Reveal Art Fair in Saratoga Springs, New York, through ModArt Gallery (2019). Her work is part of the Ville de Montréal Collection, as well as private collections in Canada, USA, Denmark, and China.
She grew up in Toronto and became interested in art at the age of seven. She studied art at Concordia University, Montreal, completing her Bachelor of Fine Arts in 2000. In 2005, she fulfilled an artist residency at the Banff Centre. Cheung completed the Freebird mural in Vancouver’s Chinatown (2019, now defunct) and, more recently, her work is featured at the Signature Richmond BC Mazda dealership. These projects exemplify Chrissy’s increased focus on finding public-art contexts for her work.
