Angela Grossman

Angela Grossman was born in 1955 in London, England. She received a BA in journalism from Ryerson College (Toronto) in the 1970's. In the 1980's, Grossman became interested in painting and completed a programme of study at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design (Vancouver). In 1985, Grossman was included in the Young Romantics exhibit at the Vancouver Art Gallery. This exhibit launched her and the other participating Vancouver artists onto the Canadian art scene.

Her thought-provoking works are the result of much research and carry several important messages and comments on society. Recently, Grossman has explored the situation of forgotten prison inmates in the series, Correction(s). Like her earlier works, the use of unconventional supports and materials mark these paintings that express deeper meaning and inspire a dialogue on issues dealing with humanity.

Grossman has exhibited with major public art galleries across Canada and commercially with the Diane Farris Gallery, Vancouver. She has been the recipient of five Canada Council B Grants. She now lives in Vancouver and teaches painting and theory at the University of British Columbia.
