Paintings by Lan Yao, a former art student at Emily Carr University, on display at the Shiny Fuzzy Muddy show at Heritage Hall in Vancouver.
from The Squamish Chief:
“Squamish’s Lan Yao never really found the opportunity to produce art on her own time when she worked in 3D animation in Vancouver.
But, in recent years since moving to the community, Yao has slowed down and taken odd jobs so that she can resume her creative work.
Even though she admits she takes a long time on her artwork, she has been productive, especially over the last three years, although this year has brought a change.
“This year is the first year I’ve been able to paint full time,” she says.
This weekend, she will be taking part in a Vancouver event from collective Shiny Fuzzy Muddy at Heritage Hall, not far from where she used to live.”
