Kristin Man is an interdisciplinary artist and author of two publications. Born in Hong Kong, after having lived around the world, she is now based in Vancouver. She writes in English, Chinese and Italian. In projects A-MARE (to love-to sea), 9_9 and Fragments of Grey Matter, she marries her written and visual poetry.
Man holds an IB from UWC of the Atlantic in Wales, a BA in International Relations from Brown University and an MBA from Columbia University in the US. She is also a certified yoga teacher and believes that life and her art traverse inside-out and outside-in.
Since 2018, she has been focusing on project A-MARE which initiated with weaving her photographic images printed on various materials into 3-D artworks and has evolved to include found plastic objects and industrial scraps. Undercurrents is an offspring. In addition to galleries in Vancouver such as Canton-sardine, Burnaby Art Council, Pendulum Gallery and Gallery 881, Man has exhibited internationally and her work is in the collection of foundations and private individuals. She has presented her work at institutions such as the Museum of Anthropology and Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Garden in Vancouver, Les Rencontres d’Arles in France, the Italian National Archives in Rome, Rizzoli in Milan, the Museum of Contemporary & Modern Art in Naples, and PAN Palazzo delle Arti Napoli as well as radio and TV interviews in Italy. Her works of art invite viewers to question what being human means by exploring disconnects between shared human issues like social justice, migration, anthropocene and consumerism.
