Live Paintings!

Some old, some new …

I’ve escaped the city of Vancouver!  The madness is behind me, at least for this week coming up.  I was up at Cypress Mountain on Thursday, and I have to admit that it was a really amazing experience; I got to be a part of the Olympics, and it was special. I also got to watch some of the half pipe competition during my breaks. Seeing an Olympic sporting event live is something else!

For the painting itself, I got a big 8 foot panel to paint on, right at the foot of the venue’s finish.  The entire set of photos is on my Flickr page, and here are a few from the set:

If you’re wondering what the ‘old’ is, of the live painting photos, it is the Spectaction event from December!  At Spectaction I painted a new piece, plus I customized a Tanpopo giclee. More information about The Arts Benevolence League, and their spin on benefit events, check them out here.  This is a photo from the live paint, plus the entire set is on Flickr:

5 Opens February 13th

Dear All,
The new group show, titled ‘5’, featuring Camilla d’Errico, Ben Tour, Lani Imre, Peter Taylor and The Dark opens On Saturday, February 13th, at Vancouver’s Ayden Gallery http://www.aydengallery.com/exhibitions_%26_events/current/.
All 5 artists will exhibit new works, and I’m pleased to share with you images of my key piece, Canadian Tiger.  The painting is 18×24 and the theme is Canadian Nature. Every animal in the painting is native to Canada and the colors, like the Canadian flag, are red and white.  My intention behind the painting was to express my fondness, love and pride of Canada, as my hometown of Vancouver gets ready to host the 2010 Winter Olympic Games.
For information about the paintings or the show, please contact Ken Lum: info@aydengallery.com
Opening reception runs from 7 pm to 10 pm, with after party at The Melk.
The show runs until March 14th.
Let the games begin!

Exhibitions and Artwork

Hi guys!

I’m back into the swing of things after an energizing trip to Hong Kong and a deathly aftermath of a flu that literally kept me bedridden for 8 days.  And here I thought I’d be able to really stick to my schedule!  Ha ha, dream on, dream on.

While I was away, the “Under the Influence” He-Man show opened at Gallery 1988. Check out all the artwork on the blog. The show got a lot of press, and apparently the install was pretty mean!  The show runs until January 29th, so if you haven’t gone, you’ve still got a week to get there.

On the day He-Man closes in LA, a new pop-up exhibition opens in Vancouver. Hosted by HERE IS NOW, this exhibition pulls together a ton of Vancouver contemporary artists and shows their work in unconventional spaces.  The exhibition is at Chapel Arts, Vancouver and the opening is going to be packed with art, artists, live music and more! I’ve got some artwork in this exhibition too ^_^.  It’s a Friday night so Vancouverites you have no excuse!  Come out!

Hot on the heels of the HERE IS NOW, is the show at The Ayden, simply called 5. Yes, the number 5. It stands for 5 great artists, one exhibition, and a chance for the world to see our art, during Vancouver’s two weeks in the Olympics spotlight! The 5 artists are BC contemporary artists and we’re all regulars at The Ayden.  I’m exploring the theme of Canadian nature and culture. Nature isn’t new to me, but I get to really show my pride and love of Canada with this, so I’m really stoked. The show opens on February 13th, the day after Olympics opening ceremonies.

The day before the ‘5’ show, another show opens across the continent, in a completely different environment. I know, I know, this could get sticky and controversial, but I’m equally excited to contribute a piece to the Dirty Show, which takes place within the International Erotic Art Exhibition –  the Dirty Show.  Anyone who may find this disturbing, I’d invite you to read about the Dirty show.  I hope I’m not alienating any loving fans or Moms and Dads of my fans, but I am looking forward to this show too! I’ll be contributing one new, ‘dirty’ piece to a show within the exhibition, called The Red Light Exhibit! And I’m in good company:

Work in progress shots of all new pieces are on their way! And my next update will be about comics and covers. For now, mark your calendars for these art events and thanks for the love and support.

2010 HERE WE COME!

Hi! Did everyone have a great Christmas?!  And did you celebrate the New Year with friends galore?!  Taking a short break to enjoy friends and family was just what I needed!

Let me tell you what the general plan is for 2010, because it is already jam-packed with comics, paintings, toys, conventions, and goodies.  We’ve changed the EVENTS CALENDAR on the website. You can now find it under the BLOG on the left as its own category.  Bookmark this site so you always know what’s coming up!  All the event info, and more is on the Fanpage too.

PAINTINGS – This year I’ve got a solo show in Rome, which opens June 5th.  The gallery is called Mondo Bizzarro and I’m going to be at the opening.  I’ll be painting an entire collection of Helmetgirls.  Between now and then there are a few other shows going on: the first is the HE MAN show at Gallery 1988 LA. This one opens on January 8th. I wish I could be there!  I’ve posted the work in progress shots here.  I’ve also got a few pieces for a special show at the Ayden Gallery in Vancouver, that opens February 13th, right as the Olympics take over the city.  The show is an all-Canadian, all-BC group with me, Peter Taylor, Ben Tour and Lani Imre.  I’m going to explore nature and culture a little more in depth with these paintings.

COMICS – Sky Pirates finishes with issue 5 in January. The series has been grueling to draw, but also fun. I’ve poured my heart and soul into it, and you can tell by the detail in the images. 2010 will be the year of Tanpopo 3 & 4, as well as some cover art coming for Elephantmen, Cloudscape, and of course, Little Red Riding Hood for Fractured Fables (Silverline).  I’m also working on a top secret graphic novel project that I hope to soon tell the world about!

CONVENTIONS: This year you’ll see me, Nancy and my merchandise all over the countries (Canada/US)! We’re hitting 15 conventions, including San Diego Comic Con with a booth in the dealer’s room! Oh yes, moving UP.  We’ve got a ton of great stuff coming, including the new line of clothing, a new postcard set from Last Gasp, new art cards and new prints, as well as something truly special – Jewelry! Stay tuned for more!

I’m looking forward to 2010, and all that it will bring. I especially look forward to meeting everyone that’s out there, and who supports me in everything I do.

All the best to you for 2010. It’s gonna be epic ^_^
