Forbes Sang

Artist member since 2021
Toronto, Ontario

Forbes Sang works with the idea of being mixed-raced and how this changes the way he is perceived through family and societal norms. As an adult living in Canada attending OCAD University, Forbes is in search of his own identity. Through portraits, painting, collage and objects, Forbes is able to pick apart his own identity giving him the ability to define himself as a mixed-raced person. As a passing white male, Forbes is able to use privilege to educate others throughout his work. Feeling like an outcast when put in certain situations, Forbes is able to connect with a side of himself that can't be seen through the colour of his skin. Through his work Forbes hopes that others like himself are able to find their own identity as well.
