RONNIE CHENG 鄭芷路.

FILMMAKER. MEDIA ARTIST. WRITER. PRINTMAKER.

Ronnie is a Hong Konger interdisciplinary artist based in British Columbia, Canada. 

Ronnie’s interest in the arts stems from a love for people, and a desire to tell stories that reflect the human condition while uplifting a variety of marginalized communities. Ronnie creates art around social justice and human rights, focusing primarily on the preservation of the Hong Kong identity and 2SLGBTQIA+ stories. On occasion, Ronnie has also tackled subjects such as mental health and climate change.

Ronnie is an uninvited guest on the unceded, ancestral and traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
