Gianna Chun is an artist from Hong Kong and Singapore, she is now based in Baltimore studying at Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) for her BFA in photography. Growing up in Beijing, the amalgamation of different cultures has led her to think internationally. Gianna's work addresses the nuances of identity through photography and fibres; relationships, journeys, intimacy, growth and change, especially through the LGBTQ+ community, cultural differences and societal pressures.
Gianna’s work has been exhibited at Art Depot 798 in Beijing, China as well as the Meyerhoff Gallery, Decker Library and Main 0 Gallery at MICA. Her first solo show featuring the body of work Q&A will open October 2020 in the Pinkard Gallery.

Gianna's commercial work lies in fashion and beauty and she has worked with luxury skin care brands and up and coming designers. Through her knowledge behind the scenes as a fibres maker, she brings a unique perspective to photographing fashion and beauty. With a focus on pushing for true inclusivity and diversity, Gianna's commercial work paints a different picture from the industry norm. Please contact her for collaborations and more information.
