About the Painter

Joe Cho was born in Hong Kong and currently working as a professional Interior Designer.
He is the eldest in the family and always being regarded as a prodigy in painting by his father Mr. Hau Cho, who worked as a Mathematics and English teacher. His father would urge him to persist in achieving his goal while tirelessly cultivating his talent in this area by arranging tutors and instructors to help him thrive and flourish in life.
Joe graduated with distinction from the design faculty of Hong Kong Polytechnic University at the young age of 19 and emigrated to Canada when he was 30 years old. His passion for painting continued throughout the past years, often stretching into exhaustive hours immersed in his artistic realm to make up for the time spent making ends meet.
Coming from Hong Kong, where the east meets the west harmoniously, his artworks cover cultures from both sides, with the portrayal and illustrative capacity attributing to his unique style.
