About Fina Yeung

Access Art 2015
King Yan Fina Yeung is a New York based artist who works with recycled cardboard for painting and installation. Fina uses cardboard to construct abstract architectural forms to express her emotional relationship with urban living and built-environment. Besides painting and installation, Fina also designs her handmade artisan bag. She uses organic cotton canvas for her latest bag creation. ”Very Fina” represents the artist’s unique character in art and design that shares her love for nature and the environment.

Fina was born in Hong Kong and have lived in different parts of United States for 25 years. Her works have been exhibited in New York, New Jersey and Washington DC, including Jamacica Center for Arts and Learning, Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition, Brooklyn Arts Council, Hillyer Art Space in Washington DC, Walls-Ortiz Gallery and Center in Harlem, Rutgers University, Paul Robeson Galleries, BRIC Arts Media House, Williamsburg Art & Historical Center, and open studios in Bushwick. In addition, her large-scale painting is permanently displayed at the Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre in Malaysia. Fina strongly believes that working with the community can empower people with diverse backgrounds, especially migrant women.
