Geoffrey Lok-Fay Cheung is a visual artist and biomedical communicator. In his artistic practice, Geoff is interested in visualizing the tensions of self, interpersonal, and generational identities—how attractive and repulsive forces combine and balance to create the networks that bind individuals to each other and to community. His art often draws heavily on his own experiences as a queer first generation Canadian of Chinese descent. Geoff is a multimedia artist who uses painting, photography, as well as videographic techniques in his works—technical skills he acquired in his previous practice.
Geoff graduated with a Master of Science in Biomedical Communications from the University of Toronto, and has worked as an award winning medical illustrator and animator for over 15 years. He was a production artist for Digizyme Inc in Boston MA for most of the 2010s, working on notable projects such as the Boston Museum of Science’s Hall of Human Life and the digital textbook, E.O. Wilson’s Life on Earth. He is an instructor on the science visualization platform, Clarafi, and he was the previous Head Media Editor for the Biomedical Communications Alumni Association and creator of the MScBMC Viewbook. Geoff founded and runs Carbon Coded Studios.
