Yuen Ling Chiu is a London-based printmaker and artist educator, from Toronto, Canada. She specialises in printmaking history and practice, in higher and museum education, and has extensive experience delivering curriculum aligned teaching, and short courses in the public institutional and charitable field.
Trained in stone lithography, relief printing, screenprint, etching and digital media, Ling is the full-time Printmaking Technical Coordinator at LCC, University of the Arts London.
Her work explores the architecture and pattern of memory, urban landscapes, and empire. She mines the icons and symbols that inform the architecture of memory and uses their relocation to provoke debate. Drawing on physical sites, decorative motifs and historic narratives, her work aims to disseminate memory structures through printed layers. Her most recent works, the HK Sketches, explore cultural identity through rose-coloured childhood memories of Hong Kong, during a time of great political and social change.
