Yangyang Pan is an artist "coming from away" to put it in her own words since she immigrated to Canada(2006) after completing her art education at the Sichuan Fine Art Institute in China. She first started exploring art through digital mediums, but later on, she was attracted to traditional painting as a better way to self-express her ideas. Her works bridge East and West, while her joyful paintings host symbols

of flowers and gardens, which Yangyang Pan says are metaphors for growth and transformation. Her artwork focuses on chromatic lyrism, using nostalgic moments wrapped in wild and joyful colours. Yangyang Pan is currently living and working in Toronto. Her work has been exhibited throughout Canada and US, as well as in Italy and China and she has participated in numerous commissioned works such as Apple, Amour Vert, Holt Renfrew, and Anthropologie.

Mong Mong Sho's latest artwork is called Songs of Fishermen. They are a series of watercolour paintings heavily inspired and influenced by his early life which was spent near the sea and around boats and fishermen. His childhood dream was to become the best boat-maker and apparently he didn't make

his dream come true but they still have a special place in his life and philosophy as he mentioned while he was interviewed by Showcase Magazine. Mong Mong Sho believes that we all carry our own boat inside us called life and we need to make it smoother by ourselves.

His White Night series present every day(or night) street photos of ordinary people doing unusual things in a very intuitive way. Most of his street photos are from close range placing the subject on the center of his camera lens. Watching his photos for a few minutes may give you the idea that

he treats people or animals as bizarre city creatures who roam around it and most probably affect the way you look at people and scenes while wandering around the city.
