Choi, Take- away Door, video still 1979
Choichun Leung is a NYC based artist who’s work explores the creative process as a cathartic journey. Through drawings, paintings and film her art is a visual representation of the shaping of memory.
Leung was raised in North Wales, UK working in her family's Chinese restaurant from an early age, that experience along with her exposure to the mythical surroundings of Wales forged her reliance on art as her means of expression and escapism.
After studying Silversmithing at Loughborough College (UK), Leung pursued Buddhist Iconography in China and has been featured in a number of solo and group exhibitions. Additionally, she received the Prince’s Trust, Gold Award in 1995. An accomplished artist now based in Brooklyn, NY, most recently she has participated in exhibitions at Dress Shop Gallery in New York and a fundraiser for New Sanctuary Coalition.
