Biography

Kim Lowe is an artist and printmaker of NZ Chinese and Pakeha descent based in Otautahi. She holds an MFA in Printmaking from the University of Canterbury. Her artwork often uses forms and elements of her hybridised NZ Chinese, Pakeha-European and Southern New Zealand cultures and environment.

Kim runs Toi Te Karoro, a shared studio space that was set up in New Brighton as a part of CNZ earthquake recovery. Toi Te Karoro has recently joined the Renew New Brighton school community at Te Kura Tawhito, the abandoned Central New Brighton School which is providing space and community for artists and non-profit organisations.

Kim was a coordinator for the 2012 and 2013 Sendai-Christchurch Art Exchanges and teaches part-time in Art, Design and Creativity at Ara Institute of Canterbury.
