Read on to find out more!

A big thank you to all the dozens of artists who responded to our call for artists over the last month. We were humbled by your talent, your huge range of genres and styles, and your enthusiasm – all of which made the work of the selection committee very difficult. And seeing such big interest in this project does inspire us to create more opportunities like this! 

But now, we are so excited to finally announce the three artists selected for the 2021 season of the Parkdale ArtWall, inspired by Daniel Martelock! You’ll find their biographies below and links to their work online.

You’ll also see the dates for the live painting events at the Art Wall. Join us in Parkdale Park from 4-8 PM to watch the artists finish their murals accompanied by great live #WelliWednesday musical acts on those dates (weather permitting).

See you in Parkdale Park!


Congratulations An Nguyen, Clara Kim, & Sanjay Sundram!

Sanjay Sundram settled in Ottawa in 2013, coming from Delhi, India. As an artist, Sanjay continues to find inspiration in urban spaces. To him, these are places of everyday horrors and everyday magic. Large simians appear on skyscrapers built on the ruins of their forest. Cars sprout golden flowers instead of smoke. Animals with origins in different regions of the world find their way in these cityscapes, very much like the diverse communities that have been part of Canada.

Clara Kim was born in South Korea and was influenced by the ancient Korean arts and contemporary western sensibilities. She was inspired by both different cultures and strives to bring together these two separate philosophies. That is why she chooses to paint with a knife rather than a brush, drawing heavily from the oriental style, but aiming to express a western feel.

An Nguyen’s work is inspired by her travels and love of music. Her geometric contemporary paintings capture musical concepts of cadence and rhythm in the movement of their fluid lines and shifting shapes. An is a Vietnamese Canadian artist who wants to represent more diversity in her art and offer a whimsical statement that provides a sense of escape for the viewer.
