Artist statement

Canal has lived and worked for 25 years in numerous countries from Asia to Europe and Africa. She is currently living with her family in Finland. 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 whether consciously or subconsciously. Canal 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 the Founder of Floating Island Art project and the Co-Founder of the ongoing art project ‘Blue and Red’ which will be showing in numerous museums in China and Finland from 2018 – 2020.
