Sapira Cheuk was born in Hong Kong and immigrated to Hawaii at the age of 10. Her work investigates tensions between Eastern and Western influences and attitudes as they as surface in the experience of contemporary Hong Kong. She incorporates traditional Chinese Sumi Ink painting techniques and aesthetics, and painterly digital manipulation to portray the sensual yet grotesque aspects of female sexual experience. Blending multiple practices and aesthetics, her current work investigates the experience of postcolonial Hong Kongers by drawing on visual metaphors of masochism.  She is currently a MFA student at CSUSB.
