On Art: Meet Mao (Kun) Chen 


Mao (Kun) Chen
 is deeply interested in themes of socio-cultural identity, and issues surrounding female representation in a male-dominated world. Those are a couple of the big ideas that inspire this Calgary-based Chinese-Canadian artist to create striking works through painting, ceramics, and installations.

Mao has a lot on the go these days, including an upcoming residency at Medalta in Medicine Hat, an exhibition on now at the Alberta Society of Artists in Calgary, plus she is the Immigrant Council for Arts Innovation‘s Artist of the Month for July!

Mao (Kun) Chen caught up with CKUA’s Grant Stovel to talk about what drives her to create her innovative work on the Thursday, July 29, 2021 episode of Traffic Jams!
