Simon Wong, ASA
A painter, Calligrapher, Sculptor, and Art Instructor in Calgary I like to build things from nothing or scraps and turn into something new. My foundation is in Eastern and Western techniques which allow me to express my creativity in unique ways. I find inspiration in music, sounds, shapes and the movement of objects around me. In my development as an artist, I have explored Canadian themes using contemporary and traditional styles while remaining true to my early artistic training use rice paper and ink. I use this medium to communicate how truly multicultural Canada has made me. I will continue to look for new ways to mix the old and new because without our traditions, we would not have a foundation to build upon.
