Artist statement

‘The idea of not being discriminated while truly being yourself, and being accepted is possible in Canada. You can find people who speak different languages, and someone who has a totally different background but, everyone can celebrate Canada Day and other special events together as one. To represent unity, I painted people to look at the sunrise in the distance. As the train passes behind the earth and heads near the sun, it represents that the future of Canada is going to be bright and that all provinces will work together to make Canada a better place to live for everyone.’
– Youngli
