Taiga Chiba


Yesterday we attended another opening, this time “Tis the Season!” at Art Beatus, featuring the works of four artists, including friend and printmaker Taiga Chiba. Taiga’s works are part of a series using the traditional Japanese Sumi-e painting technique (painting with black ink on rice paper). All the works were black and white, including the etchings by Toru Sugita, and photographic-based media by Kumiko Yakusawa, and Qin Feng’s ink paintings and looked very strong against the stunning pink-orange walls.

Taiga is a past member of the Art Institute, Printmaking at Capilano College and is very well-known in Canada and internationally, having won awards in several international print exhibitions and participated in many artists’ residencies in several countries.

Well worth visiting, this exhibition is on until January 8, 2005 at Art Beatus, 108 – 808 Nelson Street, in Vancouver, BC. Hours: Mon – Fri 10 am – 6 pm
