True Colour Art Gallery is perhaps North Vancouver’s newest gallery – located on Marine Drive opposite Capilano Mall. The space is bright, airy and showcases the work perfectly. The majority of the artwork on display is by Li Xuan – gallery owner Li Li’s late father. His vibrant and expressive artworks feel optimistic and fresh; playfully combining traditional Chinese ink with a contemporary Western approach to abstraction. These large pieces are interspersed by yellow, red and black fluid sculptures by Mexican sculptor Mauricio Soria, and large Chinese calligraphy pieces by Liu Lian Jie. In addition artwork by Yasen Nenov, Petra Giffard and gallery owner Li Li can also be admired at the gallery.
The gallery’s official opening on Friday 1st June was a true celebration – an opportunity to appreciate and admire artwork from various local and international artists. The gallery is open throughout June so if you did not make it to the opening event be sure to go and check it out when you can. There are also a series of art classes happening in June in association with Art! Vancouver – so if you fancy getting creative this month be sure to check out what’s on offer in this wonderful new space in North Vancouver.
