“ The scenes in my paintings and drawings are concocted by my 12 year old alter ego who believes in magic and animal gods, who is invincible, brutal yet kind; she likes to venture into the dark in order to make light of the one she lives in.”
Hazel Ang is a Munich based aritst from Canada with Filipino-Chinese heritage. She has an undergraduate degree in Music from McMaster University. After injuring her left wrist and arm from a fall, she turned to drawing and completed her studies in graphic design. In 2006 she moved to Munich and trained under the infographics department of the Sueddeutsche Zeitung. After a year full of crazy deadlines, she moved on and made technical illustrations for well known german industrial products for another 10 years. 2012 was a tumultuous year for her and it took its toll emotionally and physically. Turning to art saved her life. She has since exhibited at art fairs, group exhibitions and has had a few solo shows. Her art has been presented in a few publications. She also curates and organises Arcana, a tarot themed show in Munich where she lives today with her other half and their feline child, momo. She is inspired by folklore, flora & fauna, and the human condition. Painting mostly with oils directly on panel or canvas, her current body of works are an internal journey into dark spaces to reflect her own narrative. The works chronicle surreal reflections rooted in a natural world which conveys the essence of our very existence.
