Vancouver 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)
Burnham 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
Drew Burnham trained with Don Jarvis and Toni Onley, and studied architectural rendering as well as Fine Art at the Vancouver School of Art and University of Victoria. Burnham’s paintings are in many private and corporate collections.
