Kim-Lee Kho is a Canadian, Brampton-based multidisciplinary artist, (and longtime designer/art director), exploring personal experience as a gateway to broader human concerns.
The bi-ethnic daughter of a scientist and an artist, her process and interests combine all of those influences, in sometimes unexpected ways.
Kho has participated nationally in exhibitions, residencies, and mentorships; and won awards including grants from the Ontario Arts Council.
In 2016 and 2018 Kho was a featured artist in the In Situ multi-arts festival presenting Containment and Hearts in Place, respectively, at the Small Arms Inspection Building (SAIB), an old factory building in Mississauga, Ontario, with large scale pieces and whole-room installations in multiple media, as well as live mural-drawing performances.
A member of The Red Head Gallery collective in Toronto since 2018, she presented her second solo show of 2019 there: Heartspace, a multimedia installation exploring the human heart as anatomical structure, cultural repository for emotions and vehicle for metaphor.
Kho's first solo exhibition of 2019 was A Full Heart, physically her largest show to date, occupying three spacious rooms of a historic house at Cedar Ridge Studio Gallery in Toronto.
A popular and experienced art educator, speaker, and juror, who, since the first COVID lockdown, has offered free biweekly Virtual Studio Parties on YouTube, (which resume on October 4, 2021) she teaches: independently online; at the Haliburton School of Art + Design; and at the invitation of groups around southern Ontario.
