ARTIST INFO

About 

Betty Leung is a visual artist based in London.  She holds an MA from Camberwell College, University of Arts London (2020).  Her multimedia practice is concerned with social, economic and political complexities in the context of human behaviour.  She uses algorithms to explore the tension between chance and control by printing digitally rendered imagery onto fabric and transforming them into textile sculptures.  Leung won the 2019 Graduate Art Prize with Interpreter IV.  In 2022 she showed her work in a solo exhibition with Unit London’s online programme Platform.  Recent group exhibitions include NFTism: No Fear in Trying, Unit London (2021) and Chance and Control: The Art of Letting Go, Slash Arts Gallery, London (2011).  Since 2022 Leung has been an Associate Lecturer at Central Saint Martins, University of Arts London.
