About the artist
Bio: Lily Cheung is a first-generation British-born Chinese artist. She was born in Rhyl in North Wales, with her parents originating from Hong Kong. Having grown up in Liverpool in England, she is now based in London, where she has lived and worked for many years. Lily developed an interest in recreational drawing from an early age. Her interest eventually blossomed into a passionate hobby, and she began seriously considering a career in making visual art. After working in sales and marketing for several years during the 1990s, Lily decided to take the plunge and become a self-represented artist. She subsequently graduated in printmaking from Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design in 2008. In her artistic work, Lily experiments with different techniques and utilises various materials to achieve the visual elements of line, shape and form. Her work is very diverse, bold, decorative and colourful, and she often uses painting, printmaking and mixed media in her creative process. ​ Overall, Lily Cheung's work thematically explores the concept of personal freedom of expression, based largely on her own thoughts and life experiences. Her art is constantly changing and evolving, and her current projects involve working on abstract expressionism as well as a broad range of signs, symbols and iconic images.
