Nicolas Cheng

After having lived and studied in both Hong Kong and London, Nicolas Cheng currently lives and works in Stockholm. Since 2015 Cheng has been research-fellow at HDK, Academy of Design and Crafts at the University of Gothenburg where he uses his multicultural background and interdisciplinary approach to thoroughly investigate the creative process, from idea to fruition by means of crossing boundaries and merging different tools, skills and knowledge. Cheng maintains both an individual studio practice and, since 2011, a collaborative research practice with Beatrice Brovia (mentor to Kim Whalen) with a strong focus on material culture and craft discourse.
