Angela Grossmann has devoted much of her career to examining themes of displacement and social margins through the use of collaged and transferred discarded materials. While still a student at Emily Carr College (now Institute) of Art and Design in 1985, Grossmann was introduced as one of the Vancouver Art Gallery's “Young Romantic” painters most likely to influence the course of painting in that decade. Over the past 20 years, Grossmann has continued to be a significant force in the Canadian art world. In June 2006, she was included in a list of 100 artists who have most influenced students at eleven leading British art schools, including the Royal Academy, Slade and Royal College of Art.After earning an MFA at Concordia University and teaching at Ottawa University, Grossmann returned to Vancouver in 1996 to paint and to teach at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design. Her work has been exhibited widely across Canada, the United States and Europe.
