PAINTER alex fong
“I paint to make people feel good, and put a little joy into their lives.”
Alex Fong’s watercolor world stirs the imagination with a kaleidoscope of light and color, and a bouquet of wonder and whimsy.
It is a paradise where bountiful orchards, vineyards and gardens teem with birds and animals. It is a fanciful place where one might see a painted cow ambling through a crosswalk, or an elephant drifting across a summer sky.
Born in Vancouver, B.C. in 1956, Alex Fong’s interest in art began at a young age. However, it was not until his study of interior design that he discovered the medium of watercolour and the freedom of colour and expression that matched his vision of the world.
Alex’s early works reflected a traditional oriental technique. As his talents flourished, Alex developed a personal style that has since become his hallmark. Alex’s paintings are a kaleidoscope of light and colour – a bouquet of wonder and whimsy. The sense of delight that accompanies them draws the viewer in for a closer look.
His translucent, impressionistic paintings are distinguished by a parade of coloured flecks that he calls “confetti” which represent his celebration of life. The result is an exquisite balance of spontaneity and grace. Though Alex’s artistic vision continues to evolve, his works reflect a fresh and youthful outlook.
