Cory E. Yeung
Apprentice, Art Apprenticeship Network 2023

Cory Yeung (he/him) is an interdisciplinary artist based in the unceded, ancestral territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh Nations. Working within ceramics, sculpture, fiber and print, his approach with material is a tangible response to his quest to connect to his Chinese Canadian cultural heritage and queer identity. His practice draws inspiration from the Chinese diaspora, Ming porcelain, queer club culture, modernist architecture and maximalist d├ęcor tendencies. The resulting work traces the fruitful exploration with an aim to continue conversations within communities he proudly belongs to.
