Art by Lan Yao / Lan Yao

Lan Yao spent her childhood exploring the narrow alleys of Beijing’s Hutongs. Now, transported to the coastal rainforest of British Columbia, Canada, she runs the soft mossy trails under tall trees. The influence of these interwoven places are evident in her landscapes. She tiers layers of chaos upon layers of calm all intersecting to form a delicate yet breakable balance. A space is created for beings to play in a habitat all their own. Take some time to immerse into these scapes and one will find a place for any creature including the artist herself. Lan Yao has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design and a degree in 3D Animation and Visual Effects from Vancouver Film School.
