Janine Claase studied Fine Art in Hong Kong and graduated  from RMIT University (BFA with distinction) in 2019, majoring in photography.


As an emerging artist she has participated in various exhibitions in Hong Kong, including group shows at Pao Galleries, Hong Kong City Hall and Gallery By The Harbour.

Her multidisciplinary practice includes painting, video, performance art and photography and explores the idea of tension between opposites or liminal states that may exist between two fixed polarities. 


She is currently based in Hong Kong and develops/tutors photography courses at Hong Kong Art School.
