Wuon Gean Ho graduated with a BA in the History of Art, and a professional license as a veterinary surgeon from Cambridge University, before taking up a Japanese Government Scholarship in 1998 to study woodblock printmaking in Japan. She has held print residencies in Kyoto, Japan; Caldera, Crows’ Shadow Institute of the Arts and the Sitka Center for Arts and Ecology in the United States; Intaglio Printmaker and Printspace in the United Kingdom and exhibits widely both nationally and internationally. She makes rich glowing prints and artist books with a fantastical narrative exploring the borderline between beauty and beast, and the energy shifts between life and sleep, and sleep and death. She is an instructor in Japanese woodblock technique and teaches in East London Printmakers and the Sitka Center for Arts and Ecology every year. She has work in the collections of Aberystwyth University, the Crow’s Shadow Institute of Arts and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Currently she is curating work for the second “Qijiang International Print Festival” in China.
