ART FOCUS IS PLEASED TO HOST ARTIST MICHAEL KING AT A DEMO
WEDNESDAY, JAN. 25th, 7-9 pm, at THE OUTLET
LEIGH SQUARE ARTS VILLAGE in beautiful downtown PORT COQUITLAM
Michael King is a contemporary Canadian painter and art instructor based in Port Coquitlam, B.C. He is well known for his soft plein air landscapes, modern still lifes, and portraiture. With an eye for how light, shadow, and colour temperature form the fundamental elements of a scene, King’s practice blends representation with Impressionistic aesthetics. This juxtaposition of technique and intuition creates paintings that are poised between observational realism and abstraction.
A formal education in Industrial Design at Carleton University in Ottawa and ensuing experience in the field of product design influenced King’s approach to fine art. He places strong emphasis on mastery of the technical aspects of painting and the proven principles of art, then allows the educated subconscious to take reign during the painting process. King has won awards in a variety of exhibitions and competitions and his work appears in private collections throughout Canada and the United States.
King is the founder of PleinAirBC.com and an associate member of the Oil painters of America. He is the past president and past vice president of the Fraser Valley Chapter of the Federation of Canadian Artists. He is also a past board member of The Federation of Canadian Artists and the Friends of Leigh Square, in Port Coquitlam. He is an active community member of Port Coquitlam, working with civic agencies and community organizations on arts related and city planning projects.
