Pamela Leung is a Hong Kong Sydney-based artist, with a Master of Fine Art from the National Art School, 2016. Following this, Leung received the Emerging Artist Prize in the 65th Blake Prize 2018, as well as exhibiting globally in Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Sweden, Paris and London.

With her installation, video, sound, sculpture and painting, Pamela explores the routines of everyday life, relationships, connections, displacement and the diaspora. She shares her personal migratory experience with the audience, allowing them to reflect on ideas of identity and displacement. The colour red takes on a significant symbolic status in her work, representing the differing perspectives of Western and Eastern cultures; it is also the colour that runs through all people, no matter the colour of their skin and is used as a unifying force.
