Three Springs in the Garden exhibition presents three young emerging artists (the Springs) devoted to learning, creating, supporting, and encouraging other young people to express themselves creatively.
With different ages and art styles, the three Springs express their transition from childhood to adolescence using the most human characteristic of self-expression: visual art. Art is the medium that helps them understand, adapt, and embrace new environments and cultural challenges.
Born in China, Rachelle Yau, our youngest Spring started painting at the age of five and won numerous awards both in China and Canada. Rachelle first exhibited her art at the Garden in 2012. She is also a dedicated Garden volunteer, a public speaker at school, and a ballet dancer in her free time.
Yolanda Jin was born in China and arrived in Canada with her family in 2007. She has adapted to the new culture by becoming a successful student, athlete and artist. Her art reflects the need to analyse, organize and aim at succeeding in life.
Anthia Chen was born in Canada, but raised in Hong Kong. After moving back to Vancouver, Anthia engaged and further explored her Chinese heritage. She received many awards for her art and exhibited several times in Vancouver. Currently, she is studying communication design at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design.
