I’m very pleased to announce that I’ll be showcasing work at Scicluna Deli in Doncaster from June 1st – June 30th.

Please see below for more details about the show:

Art at the Deli: Animal Menagerie

A solo exhibition by Jo Cheung Illustration

Show dates: June 1st – June 30th 2019

Jo Cheung is a freelance illustrator and designer based in London. She studied at Doncaster Churchview for a year and after that she went on to study BA HONS Illustration at the University of Westminster. Since then she has resided in London and has exhibited her work in numerous galleries across London.

Inspired by her continuing interest with the natural world, she will be presenting a series of work that examines our relationship with the natural world. Imaginary landscapes and an idealistic view often depicting animals roaming free with no human intervention has been the continuing theme in Jo’s work. Often, animals and birds are isolated within the scene with no human element involved. Our way of living in a consumer society is having a massive and major impact on the environment- irreversible damage which is caused by our lifestyle such as production of food, deforestation, the over reliance of fossil fuel, over consumption of ‘fast fashion’ is having a detrimental effect on the natural world. She likes to pose this question to the audience when viewing her work.  

Jo works in various mediums when making her images. She enjoys to experiment with layout and composition when making collages, this is also true when digitally altering the final image on the computer.

Come along and see some artwork from past to present. I’ll be there on Saturday morning doing a meet and greet.

Hope to see you there and please share the post if you can!

Hello! Hope you’re all good despite the rain! This past week has been slightly cray cray (love using that word at the moment). I was a little bit stressed out what with the exhibition and the house moving situation (which is officially happening!), so I’ve been meaning to write up a post about the show but couldn’t find the time until now!

For the past few months there was a slightly lull in terms of organising things; until a month before the show I was emailing blogs to list our exhibition as well as getting my own things ready all at the same time. Needless to say the night before the opening we all came in to put our work up (obligatory action shot photos here):




We had a few things to do before the opening such as getting flyers prepped and the buying the drinks ready to go for the evening; happy to say that all went well and the private view was so much fun! It was great to see everyone again plus we had a giveaway raffle too- messed it up slightly but Emily helped out so it was ok! The biggie prize for the night was two tickets to the Royal Academy’s Summer Exhibition Show 2016, which the winner wasn’t there by the time we announced it so I had to post it to her the next day.

I really enjoyed curating the show and would love to curate another show in the future. I learnt a lot about myself in terms of organising tasks effectively, time management, keeping communication lines open plus delegating tasks to others as sometimes I lack confidence in that area.

For now though there’s no rest for us as we’re moving next weekend so we have loads of stuff to pack and get rid of! I can put my feet up and do nothing once we’ve moved, which I’m super excited about. I’ll keep you all updated about it (maybe even photos included too!)

Tropical Safari Flyer

Hi all, hope you’re enjoying the gorgeous weather wherever you are and apologies for the hiatus as I’ve been fairly busy… However, I’m happy to finally announce that I’m part of a group exhibition at A-side B-side Gallery, which will take place from 9-14 June. I’m super chuffed to be exhibiting with some good friends of whom I’ve previously exhibited with for ‘Sorted London’ and ‘The Picture Show’. I designed the flyer for the show, I tried to keep it to the theme with the layout of the text clear and simple.


There’s going to be a raffle giveaway during the Private View- so definitely not to be missed! Proceeds will go towards Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand; a charity that works tirelessly to promote conversation and safe sanctuary for endangered species.

For more information about the exhibition and the location please follow the link here.

I’ve shown some of my work there before when I was part of Into the Sun and House of Tigers last year. Now it feels even more real as the date for the exhibition is beginning to creep up on me…

In other news- albeit unrelated to the exhibition- Sam and I are in the process of buying a house so everything at the moment has been slightly hectic and manic.

I’m going to leave it there and I’ll post photos of my work once the exhibition is on. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

What a hectic/manic week! On Monday night I dropped off my work at A-side B-side GalleryHackney Downs Studios– for the House of Tigers exhibition; leaving Adam, who curated the show, and a few of this other friends to paint the walls (sorry folks!).

Anyway, Thursday’s Private View was amazing! The turn out was incredible and the whole place was buzzing with people admiring the artworks and getting to talk to the other 30 plus artists.


My work for the show: Tiger in the Night


House of Tigers

Tiger In The Night

Adam and his friends did a fantastic job of curating the show; everyone’s work really complimented one another as the artworks were all spread out across the space rather than your typical linear layout (see below).




June and I posing next to her artwork!

My friend June Sees was also part of the show and here we both are standing next to her beautiful artwork of a sleeping tiger and rabbit with a lovely bamboo frame.

I had a wonderful evening talking to friends, getting to know the other artists and then we headed off to the pub for a burger. And more beer.

Pretty good night indeed!

House of Tigers will be running until Tuesday 27th October. 

Evening all! Hope your week has been filled with lovely things to see and do. I was meant to blog about ‘Covet’ as it was going, however, running a shop takes so much time and preparation that I never managed to do it! Side note about The Hackney Shop: it’s a pop-up retail space available for Hackney residents (or if you work there) and the whole concept behind it is giving creatives the opportunity to showcase their work for free. Yes, for free. As getting any kind of space is so cut-throat and expensive to the eye balls, The Hackney Shop is a not for profit enterprise that allows constant creativity to evolve every week. Also, bringing in local benefits to the community too.

Myself, The Illusive Eye (Chrissy Wallace) and Bilton Conceptual Design (Cris Cold) had the space for a week and whilst we were there, we were opening and closing the shop from 10 until 5pm every day. As the week went on we had a mix of people visiting the shop and, although it was generally quiet in the mornings, there was a fair stream of people coming in during the weekend.

I had a great week chatting to Chrissy about art, dogs, drinking beer and drinking even more beer as the week went on…!
