David Cheung is a Toronto & Beijing-based multimedia artist whose artwork often deals with social, political issues and involves the public as active participants. He also has been pursuing research in fusing Chinese classical ink and wash landscape paintings with Western oil paintings. He has exhibited in Canada and internationally at private galleries, art festivals and public museums. He has also curated exhibitions internationally.

In 2002, Cheung founded ARTi-Smoking, a non-profit organization that uses creative methods and art to enhance youth and public awareness about the dangers of smoking and the magnitude of deaths from tobacco use. Recently, at the New Media Art Department of the School of Art & Design at the Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology, where he is an interactive research artist, he launched a campaign entitled “-599”, for campaigning tobacco companies to reduce additive ingredients in cigarettes.
