Peace of My Mind – Art by Mingqian (Henry) Wang

Opening Sep 30 2-5pm

Exhibition: Oct 1 – 3, 11am-6pm

Organized by the BC Creative Center, the solo exhibition “Peace of My Mind” by Vancouver’s young artist, Mingqian (Henry) Wang, will open at the Lipont Gallery on September 30, 2023. Henry Wang, a sixteen-year-old student at Point Grey Secondary School in Vancouver, has been fond of calligraphy, painting, and sports since childhood. His upbringing in a loving family environment, along with his parents’ positive guidance, tolerance, and support, as well as the nurturing educational atmosphere and free social environment, have naturally infused his works with unrestrained creativity and personality.

In the two years since his enrollment at the BC Creative Center, Henry has completed over a hundred art works. His passion and talent have deeply moved his parents, teachers, and friends, leading them to make an exception and organize a solo exhibition for him. After a year of meticulous preparation, Wang’s solo exhibition is now ready. This exhibition is not merely a display of paintings; it’s a special way to encourage this young artist to continue expressing his emotions and thoughts, providing everyone with an opportunity to glimpse into his heart through his art. The exhibition will feature more than 40 paintings and installations suitable for audiences of all ages.

Notably, Henry will handpick several of his cherished works for sale during this solo exhibition, with the proceeds going to the Vancouver Art Gallery’s Institute of Asian Art (IAA). This gesture aims to inspire people from all walks of life to generously support the development of the IAA and enhance Vancouver’s diverse artistic atmosphere, particularly reflecting the young generation of Chinese residents who care about the community and contribute to society.
