During the month of December, we're showcasing the work of a variety of artists from the DCCC (Durham Chinese Canadian Culture Center), a registered, non-profit organization in Canada. This is a family, education and inter-culture oriented community organization, devoting its efforts to serving Chinese Canadians and the general public of Durham Region. Some of the artists displayed include:
Hailan Liu - Born and raised in China, Hailan was inspired early on by her father's work in Chinese painting and calligraphy. Later on, she was influenced by several famous painters from Beijing, Tianjin and Wuhan who were her mentors. Currently Hailan is the Executive VP of Contemporary Strength Painting Artists Academy (China) and a member of the Oshawa Art Association (Canada).
Xeuhui Liu - Xeuhui has enjoyed all forms of drawing since she was a little child. During her college years, she learned to paint with watercolours. After coming to Canada, Xeuhui became interested in oil paintings and is self-taught in all of her artistic interests.
