Fiona Tang is a Vancouver-based artist who completed her BFA at Emily Carr University in May 2014 with a Drawing Major. She currently has a working studio in New Westminster at 100 Braid St Art Studios and Gallery. Tang often works with charcoal, chalk pastel and acrylic in the style of trompe l’oeil. She frequently uses animals as her subjects and creates big expressive and energetic drawings. Her animal drawings are typically life-size or larger to emphasize the interaction of viewers to her art. Tang has had group shows at the Concourse Gallery, Ayden Gallery, Richmond Art Gallery, The Fall, Anvil Centre, Wood Innovation and Design Centre, Vancouver Lipont Art Centre, dual shows at Queen Elizabeth Theatre, Gryphon Musée, and Deer Lake Gallery, and solo shows at Queen’s Park Gallery and City Centre Community Centre. She was also featured in a public art project called “No. 3 Road Art Columns” in Richmond, BC and “Utility Box Art Wrap” in Vancouver, BC.
