2009, the award winning artist Fiona Smyth has been contributing a work
each week to Monday ARTPOST, an online webzine featuring columns from
artists and writers. Under the title of CHEEZ, as a continuation of
CHEEZ, a comic strip that ran from 1992 to 2002 in Exclaim Magazine.
Until now, over 700 strips have been created.
To celebrate Fiona Smyth’s exhibition CHEEZ 2022 in Toronto (50 Gladstone Avenue Saloon), the book “CHEEZ 456” is produced, with a selection of four hundred and fifty six pieces, featured sequentially from the latest to the earliest work.
Smyth is a feminist painter, illustrator, cartoonist and instructor in OCAD University’s Illustration Program. For over three decades, Smyth has made a name for herself as a woman cartoonist, a rarity in the mid-1980s, in the local Toronto comic scene as well as internationally. In 2019, she was inducted into the Doug Wright Awards’ Giants of the North Canadian Cartoonist Hall of Fame.
