Inspired by Jackson Pollock and driven by a desire for raw authentic self-expression, Kim delves into his innermost thoughts and galvanizes them into abstract works of acrylic on canvas. A passionate supporter of the arts for decades through his family and business, it took years for Kim to finally give himself the time and space to explore his own talents. Working out of Emily Carr University on Granville Island, he has developed a dramatic self-taught style all his own. Unafraid of failure, he chases bold ideas with a feverish passion and deeply rooted need to create.
Heidi Thompson was born in Canada surrounded by mountains, lakes, sky and forest. She is inspired by natural beauty. Her aim as a painter is to capture beauty – not by painting a landscape as she knows it – with trees, mountains, clouds and sunsets, but rather by painting the essence of nature using her elements – color, light, patterns, movement and space. Her goal is to create compositions that feel natural, like a dramatic sunset, a sparkling brook, a deep wood or expanding sky.
An intuitively creative contemporary artist, Shakun’s signature style and distinctive use of mixed media is well known and easily recognizable in all of her abstract paintings. The versatility of using acrylics as a painting medium opened the door to an exciting journey of discovery that helped her find her own unique vocabulary of innovative mixed media techniques.
Uta Nagel’s fascination with glass design started in Toronto after design school. While interning with Diamond Schmitt Architects, she was asked to fabricate diverse art glass space dividers, wall cladding and exterior glass design for their commercial projects. Her aesthetic sense came to life and was strengthened with the architects’ strong sense for functionality and structural integration. Uta’s Motto “art must be functional” was born, guiding her timeless sense of design to this day.
