Founder's Welcome

Born in Hong Kong, Winson Chiu is a keen self-taught artist and educator of visual arts for over 16 years.

 

Realism has predominantly been Chiu’s chosen style, capturing nature with true-to-life expression. Fruits, vegetables, flowers, insects, and antique utensils are common subjects in Chiu’s art, which he believes triggers simple but beautiful memories in his audiences’ minds.

 

In the past, Chiu has been chosen as the Artist in Residence at the Vancouver School Board. He was also juried into the Federation of Canadian Artists, a registered charity that aims to advance the knowledge and appreciation of art and culture to all Canadians. Chiu’s artwork has been displayed in a number of exhibitions in Vancouver, BC, including the Annual International Mail-in Art Exhibition (2019) and Painting on the Edge (2019).

 

Chiu has developed his own creative vocabulary and inimitable style after years of working in the visual arts. Through his paintings, we experience our surroundings with a new expansive and compelling perspective.

       趙家和老師的畫風很多元,他的素描臨摹唯妙唯肖,畫出的動物花卉栩栩如生,就連一只簡單的戒指,他都能畫出耀眼的鑽石光輝。他也會勾勒各種想像中的題材,用色大膽活潑,展現寫意風格。但他對於日本漫畫情有獨鍾,不僅在二頭身、九頭身等人物比例很講究,對於人物表情線條、空間設計等細微之處也仔細雕琢。他說,日本漫畫的迷人之處就是單一題目也有深度廣度,看似簡單卻蘊含豐富內涵,令人愛不釋手。

 

        從小就愛看漫畫的趙家和,現在還是常常捧著漫畫書或是沉醉於動漫電影中,興之所致,自己就提筆畫個不停。他說,鼓勵與培養孩子畫畫可以幫助其發展多元能力,包括:協調力、創造力、觀察力、表達力、判斷力、想像力與組織力。這些多種能力的綜合訓練,會讓孩子學習任何事物都事半功倍。趙家和也強調,繪畫是孩子宣洩情緒最好的方式,有些孩子不太會用言語表達喜怒哀樂,但是透過筆觸畫紙就能讓內心世界有個釋放,對他們的情緒控制很有幫助。

 

       ““八度工作室”已走過了16個年頭”,趙家和說,“學生組成由小一至大學生, 及成人都有.”他愛繪畫、愛教畫的初衷熱情沒有絲毫遞減,就像天際那一抹彩虹,永遠是那麼鮮亮動人。
