Drew Burnham stylizes the West Coast

Drew_Burnham_The_Boardwalk_Diner_Sullivan_BayVancouver artist Drew Burnham’s fluid lines and vivid colors have made him a top choice for Canadian collectors, who regularly buy out his shows.  There’s a new exhibition – Silent Stories – opening today (Feb 22) at Bau-Xi Gallery, Toronto. (Above: The Boardwalk Diner, Sullivan Bay)

Drew_Burnham_Low_Tide_Thormamby_GapBurnham paints Canada’s west coast  authentically, but with a stylized torque on its grandeur.  To me, there’s no more appealing a landscape than one rendered by a contemporary artist creatively advancing the heritage of Canadian landscape painting.  (You’ll see many examples on this blog, including Dana Irving, Steve Driscoll,and Ross Penhall, each of them unique.)  Above: Low Tide, Thormamby Gap / Below: General Store, North Pender

  1. The Pender General store painting stopped me in my tracks. We have a house on the island and pass that location often when we are on Pender. Thank you for “wowing” me!
