Joshua Flint2
Joshua Flint’s work is based on images curated from many sources such as digitized museum archives, vintage shops, and social media platforms.

"I am a storyteller. My art is the expression of a carefully chosen moment, captured from a larger narrative. This story is constantly playing, moving forward and changing, as each painting alters the course of the narrative. As it ignites my imagination for the next. So the road is never a straight line." -Mark Heine, Victoria, BC

Hong Wai6
Shanghai-born artist Hong Wai Hong Wai uses her brush with uncommon skill, mastering the nuances of ink a well as the wash effect. Her works, using live with live models, exude an intimacy rare in Chinese painting. They are both highly feminine and feminist, examples of not just the beauty of the female form but also, somehow, their bold claim to independence in love and in spirit.
