is Jonathan Man. I was born in Hong Kong. When I was nine, my mother, father, sister
and I immigrated to Vancouver B.C. I went to Richmond
Christian Elementary School and
my high school education at Richmond Christian Secondary School, graduating
During my last year in high
didn’t know what my direction was after high school. One day, my art
told me that my artwork was special and that I should think about
career because he thought that I had a talent and gift in drawing. When I thought about what he said, I realized
that in reality I can’t find my way and I’m not in control. During the process of drawing, I feel
satisfied and relaxed. The creatively
process can be intensely freeing and joyous and at the same time,
I have spent the last few
my drawing skills with an art teacher in his studio.
Within these few years, my focus on drawing
has always been related to animal themes, because I love animals and
there is a lot of life to present when I sketch it out.
Also, they live in the wilderness, having a
lot of freedom, and this lets me enjoy the freedom and stress-free
nature. For my own ability, using
is easiest for me to express and present the drawing in a strong,
manner. In addition, I have drawn scenery and portraits of people. Now I want ot use a different style of art so
I started to paint some pictures. Also,
I have had the opportunity to try some pottery.
I chose to go to Emily Carr. Emily Carr has influenced Canada and internally in
the growth of arts, media and design. Also
students that go to Emily Carr are able to be
accepted by all the
major universities and art institutes of the world.
I want to be an artist in the future and have
an art exhibition for my artwork and also maintain growth as an artist. Also, I would like to complete my education
and be able to teach small children. In
order to accomplish that goal, I need to go to an elite art school and
avariety of different art skills and styles.
I was nurtured by Emily Carr University,
an institution, has influenced Canada and
internationally in the growth of arts, media and design. There I
variety of arts and my potential was brought out. I believe that art in
is another form of communication. Through art there is no separation,
racism, and no discrimination. Regardless of your skin color, the
speak, the culture you come from, everyone can still grasp the meaning
message portrayed in a simple artwork. Also I believe that art is
and another world in itself. By doing art or simply just by looking at
is able to emerge themselves into that world and experience what it is
to show us. All in all, art is unity. It pulls together the differences
world and creates a “One World”.
