Fiona Tang is a Vancouver-based artist who completed her BFA at Emily Carr University in May 2014 with a Drawing Major. Tang often works with charcoal, chalk pastel and acrylic in the style of trompe l’oeil.

She frequently uses animals as her subjects and creates big expressive and energetic drawings. Her animal drawings are typically life-size or larger to emphasize the interaction of viewers to her art.

Tang has had group shows at the Concourse Gallery, Ayden Gallery, Richmond Art Gallery, The Fall, Anvil Centre, Wood Innovation and Design Centre, City Centre Community Centre, Vancouver Lipont Art Centre, a dual show at Queen Elizabeth Theatre, and a solo show at Queen's Park Gallery. She was also featured in a public art project called “No. 3 Road Art Columns” in Richmond, BC.
