Genevieve Leong
b. 1992, Singapore
Based in London & Singapore

Genevieve Leong completed her BA Fine Art (Photography & Digital Imaging) at Nanyang Technological University, School of Art, Design & Media (NTU, ADM), Singapore. She is currently doing her MA Contemporary Art Practice (Critical Practice) at the Royal College of Art (RCA), London, and is due to complete the course in July 2019.  

Genevieve Leong is a visual artist whose practice attempts to visualise the intangible. Beginning with the immaterial, her work often combines text, photography, found objects and the manipulation of space to create what she describes as “an almost physical image”. Her work seeks to shed new light onto her emotions, sensations, and realisations.
