In the past 30 years, Canal Cheong Jagerroos has lived and worked in numerous countries from Asia to Europe and Africa. Whether consciously or subconsciously, the unique experience of having lived in such culturally diverse places, namely; Hong Kong, Shanghai, France, Switzerland, Italy, Senegal and Finland has influenced her work greatly. Canal Cheong Jagerroos has discovered that walking the line between the east and west, facing different cultures, can be both constructive and destructive, but always inspirational. Canal Cheong Jagerroos is well acquainted with the context of both Eastern and Western art, and through her art, engages in a unique dialogue between different cultures. In her works, she rebuilds the language, signs and symbols of traditional Chinese art. The artist gives birth to a vivid, vibrant and layered form by painting multiple layers of colour and mixing different materials, working to ensure that material does not limit her creativity. During her intensive painting sessions, Cheong Jagerroos creates artworks that are emotional colorful expressions that embrace positive energy and dismantle confrontations and differences, creating a peaceful and beautiful utopia. Canal Cheong Jagerroos is the Founder of the ongoing art project ‘Floating Island’ and the Co-Founder of art project ‘Blue and Red’ which has been showing in numerous museums in China and Finland from 2018 – 2020.
