Shaun Peter Mallonga was born in Vancouver, BC. Having spent most of his formative years in both the Philippines and India, he migrated back to Canada with his family seeking brighter futures. His work uses narrative to investigate the malleability and tension of identity evoked by his experiences of migration and queer identity. Shaun’s practice in ceramics began at the Langara College Fine Arts Diploma Program (2014) in Vancouver, BC. He has recently completed his Bachelor's in Fine Arts degree at the Alberta College of Art + Design (2017) as a Ceramics Major.
Shaun has exhibited his works at the Marion Nicoll, Illingworth Kerr, and Untitled Arts Society Gallery in Calgary, AB. He is currently working on furthering his studio practice in his hometown, Vancouver, BC.
