Gabby Malpas

  • Biography

    Gabby Malpas is a graduate of the Otago Art School, Dunedin NZ with a major in ceramics 1986.
    Gabby challenges the centuries-old European tradition of Chinoiserie with her own narrative as a Chinese adoptee raised by
    white parents in NZ. 
    The resulting works are beautiful, delicate but with stories that draw the viewer in for a closer look.  This is a calculated contrast
    to the sometimes confronting messages within her work.
    A proud maximalist, Gabby currently resides in Sydney, Australia
