TWO WORLDS EXHIBITION

The TWO WORLDS exhibition is a joint project between 34 Canadian students in the Illustration & Design Program of Dawson College, and 34 Chinese students studying at the Suzhou Art & Design Technology Institute.  The artworks in this exhibition explore personal identity.  Canadian and Chinese students present artworks that express each other’s worlds based on biographical texts, as well as their own worlds.  Each Chinese student is paired with a Canadian student.  This cultural and artistic exchange project is brought to you by SPACE, in conjunction with the Suzhou Art & Design Technology Institute, the Confucius Institute in Quebec and the China Project of Dawson College, The Illustration & Design Department and the Fine Arts Department of Dawson College.

This virtual exhibition accompanies an installation of prints of all of the artworks in the 5C corridor of Dawson College, 4001, de Maisonneuve ouest, Montréal, Canada.  Exhibition dates: November 16 to 30, 2011.

Frank Mulvey
Exhibition Coordinator

 

The TWO WORLDS project is the result of a virtual dialogue between two schools separated by over 10, 000 kilometers of land, water, and sky. Cities, mountains, the silent depths of oceans, fill the vastness of geographic distance between Suzhou and Montreal. The entire northern hemisphere, to be precise. How to bridge the gap? This is the challenge two groups of art students faced when they were asked to draw each other’s portrait without the opportunity of using a visual reference. They didn’t have much information to work with, only a short text penned by their overseas partner. It described a few of their physical features, hobbies, an aspiration or two. But these young artists rose up to the challenge. Employing their creativity, skills, and empathic intuition, they imagined what they could not see. Here we have images not of physical facts, but of the intangible qualities of personality and individual spirit, signposts of our common humanity.

3陈静

你好,朋友!我叫陈静,姓陈名静,你可以叫我Shirly.爸爸妈妈给我取名字的时候,可能都希望我是个文静的女孩子,可我偏偏长着一张文静的脸,却有一颗不安静的心.我很活泼,不过也只有在熟人面前才能够完全表现自我,也许这就是我的外貌和性格不相符合的原因吧.我呢,今年刚满20岁,个子不高,1米57吧;体重45kg;头发齐肩,微卷,齐刘海,大眼睛,有点小可爱;我是纯中国人,所以传承着中国人的黄皮肤;脸型是标准的瓜子脸,下巴有点尖.我有很多爱好,比如唱歌、跳舞、看笑话书.而且,我很擅长打羽毛球.如果你也有同样的爱好,我乐意与你在球场上一决高低.我憧憬浪漫,喜欢粉色系.但是我本人不会穿这种色系的衣服,只是比较喜欢而已.希望我们以后可以做朋友,记得也要把我画的美美的哦.谢谢.

3 Chen Jing

Hello, my friend! My name is Chen Jing. Chen is my family name, and jing is my given name, which means “quiet” in Chinese. You can also call me Shirley. I guess my parents wished that I would be a gentle and quiet girl; but I am not as quiet as what I look like; I can only fully express myself before acquaintances. I’m 20 now, 157cm tall, 45kg. I have shoulder-length curly hair, neat bang, big eyes, and oval face. I have many hobbies, such as singing, dancing, reading comic books. I am good at playing badminton, and if you like badminton too, we can play together. I like the color pink, but I don’t like to wear pink clothes. I look forward to making friends with you. Thanks.


4 顾莲莲

我叫顾莲莲,我是一个活泼开朗的女孩,平时大大咧咧的,比较豪爽,很有的东北女孩的感觉。我长着一头乌黑亮丽的头发,有着一双明亮的大眼睛,长着一张就喜欢吃的嘴巴,个子矮矮的,圆圆的球状身体,嘻嘻,所以大家亲切的叫我团团。
我喜欢吃红烧肉,喜欢那种香香,甜甜的感觉,每次一想到吃红烧肉,我就有点要飘在云间的感觉。
我的爱好很多,喜欢各种球类运动,不过最喜欢乒乓球,喜欢它给我带来的速度与激情。曾经有一个大大的愿望,就是长大以后能进入国家队,像邓亚萍一样冲刺世界,横扫千军,那是多么令人自豪的事情。不过我好像没有希望了,只能掌控小球,却不能掌控世界。不过也有令我十分自豪的事情,那就是我的跳远在一般女孩子中跳的最远,两米哦,呵呵,虽然我只有1.5米。不过真的很自豪。
这就是我,一个有点贪吃,一个心里有着大大世界的我.

4 Gu Lianlian

My name is Gu Lianlian, I am a cheerful and outgoing girl with beautiful black longhair and bright eyes. I’m short and a little fat, so people like to can me “Tuantuan”
which means ball in Chinese. I like eating, especially braised pork in brown sauce. It’s
sweet and delicious. I love it very much. I have many hobbies, and I love sports,
especially table tennis, which is speedy and full of passion. When I was a child, I wished
that I could join the national table tennis team some day, and I would be proud of
myself by then.  But that’s only a dream. It seems easy to control a small ball, while
hard and impossible to control the world. But there’s also something that I’m proud of
myself. Although I’m only 1.5 meters tall, I can jump as far as 2 meters, which is the
best record in my class. I’m really proud of it.
Well, that’s me, an ambitious girl who has always liked snakes.


5 郭杰明

你好,我的名字叫郭杰明。来自中国花木之乡,我感觉自己属于那种比较前卫的男生,所以我的想法会和别人有所不同,在他们看来我并不属于他们的一个群体。我很外向,善于和别人交流。自从念书起,我都会是那个班级的积极份子,有我就有快乐。我在校外漂泊了一段时间,最终回到学校,思想变的成熟了很多。我很喜欢小动物,他们很可爱。我小时候的梦想就是能和更多的小动物住在一起,以至于后来把家里弄的一团糟,害的被父母数落了一番。不过我也蛮喜欢凶狠一点的动物,他们很忠诚。我善于打台球,不过也喜欢篮球,只可惜是个菜鸟。喜欢健身,不过我太瘦,吃的再多也不长肉的。你喜欢我吗?对了,忘了说最重要的:我很帅哦!呵呵

I’m always the activist in my class, and everyone feels happy to be with me. I idled away for some time before I went back to college, and I learned something from my experience. I like small animals; they're very cute. When I was a child, my dream was to live together with the lovely animals. I also like vicious and loyal animals. I'm good at playing billiard.

我常常会带着一支笔用涂鸦的方式来记录一些美丽的东西。因为美丽的事物总会在我们不经意间溜走。

College life is colorful, with abundant professional knowledge, interesting community activities, and all kinds of students. We enjoy it.


8 江楠楠

我叫江楠楠,今年21岁,是一个乐观开朗的农村女孩。我喜欢唱歌。经常带着耳机,把音调调到最大,走在乡间小道上,望着远处的田野和冒着炊烟的人家,呼吸着泥土和花朵的芳香,肆无忌惮的唱着。听着那不着调的歌被风慢慢的吹散,心里就会特舒坦。
我的五官很普通,小小的眼睛笑起来像两个小虾米。嘴巴透着淡淡的倔强,蒜头一样的鼻子,披肩的卷发,大框架眼镜让人感觉我是个乖孩子,但是现在的渐渐喜欢上了叛逆。喜欢尝试那些新鲜刺激的事情。
闲暇时,我喜欢去乡下的集市逛逛,那里是我的灵感之源。静静地站在灿烂的阳光下,去品味那些劳动者的心灵之歌。新鲜的水果蔬菜,质朴响亮的吆喝声,满是老茧皱皮的手,那一张张黝黑但却挂着幸福笑容的脸庞·····这些都会让我激动很久,欢喜很久。

8 Jiang Nannan

My name is JiangNanNan, 21 years old. I’m an optimistic, cheerful girl. I like singing. I like to walk in the countryside, listening to the music, looking out over the fields and the smoke from the kitchen chimney, and breathing the soil and the perfume of flowers while singing. I feel comfortable to listen to the songs that gradually disappear with the gentle wind.
I have an ordinary experience with small eyes, shoulder-edge curly hair and onion-like nose. Probably you can see my stubbornness from my lips. I wear a pair of big-frame glasses. I look like a good boy, but in fact I’m a little rebellious. I like to try new and exciting things.
In my spare time, I like to go around the market in the countryside, where is my source of inspiration. Standing still in the bright sunlight, I can touch the heart of the farmers. Fresh fruit and vegetables, plain loud shouts, hands with wrinkled skin and callouses, and dark, smiling faces--- that’s what makes me excited and happy for long.

10柯有奖

 

我有张并不是很长的脸,大眼睛,一头黑色的短发,我喜欢黑色所以一直没有染发。我的个子不算高,但我喜欢运动,比如羽毛球、乒乓球、足球。
由于我是家族中最小的成员,所以从小我就收到所有人的关爱,就像被城堡包围保护的小婴儿。我起初很少出门为了不让家人担心,但渐渐的我养成了宅在家里的习惯。不喜欢出门,不喜欢和陌生人讲话,孤僻不善于表达自己的情感。现在我一直在努力改变自己,希望能走出自己的世界,融入别人的、大众的世界。
虽然总是一个人,但我喜欢热闹的感觉,这样能让我感觉不那么孤单。我喜欢听一些日本的美国的流行歌曲,喜欢迈克杰克逊。我喜欢看电影,最喜欢动画电影,像《玩具总动员》、《汽车总动员》、《秒速5厘米》等。最喜欢的制作人是日本动画电影之父宫崎骏。
我想成为一个不是因为工作而设计的自由设计师,我想要开车去西藏,想要去那边体验美丽壮观的景色来冲击的我的灵感。

10 Ke Youjiang

I have a not-too-long face, big eyes, and black hair. I’m not tall, but I like sports, such as table tennis, badminton and football.
Because I’m the youngest in my family, I have been loved by all the people around me, just like living in a castle. In order not to make my family worried about me, I seldom go out, and gradually I get used to staying at home. I don't like going out, nor talking to strangers. I don’t know how to express my feelings. Now I’m trying to change myself, to get out of my own world and into the world of the others.
I like to listen to some Japanese and American pop songs, like Michael Jackson. I like watching movies, especially animated movies, such as "the toy story" and "cars,", "seconds 5 cm speed", and so on. My favorite producer is Hayao Miyazaki, father of the Japanese animation film.
I want to be a freelance designer. I want to drive to Tibet, to experience the spectacular scenery there and get some inspiration.

 

11 李坤

 

您好!虽然我们没见过面,但还是要说声很高兴认识你。嗯......,我是一个有着一米八的高高瘦瘦的大男孩,有着黑黑的头发,高挺的鼻梁,不算太大的眼睛。
在生活中,我是一个不太爱言语的人,虽然我不是太爱说话,但这却并不能代表我就是一个不爱结交朋友的人,我是一个比较重感情的人,因此,在我身边有着很多真挚的朋友,他们一直都在不断的支持我,关心我。
我喜欢风,我想要想风一样的自由,没有约束,所以只要是起风的时候我都会叫上朋友和我一起。那时我们在风中奔跑,嬉戏打闹,是那么的酣畅淋漓,真的就好像风一般的自由。
不知道和你说了这么多我在你心中是个怎样的形象,不过好期待啊.....

11 Li Kun

   Hello! Although we have never met before, I still want to say --- Nice to meet you. Well, I’m a tall and thin boy with black hair and bridged nose. I’m 1.8 meters tall, and my eyes are not too big.
   I’m a little introverted and not talkative. But that does not mean I don’t like to make friends. I cherish the friendship I have. I have many sincere friends, who always support me and have concern about me.

12 罗俊楠

我,罗俊楠。1991年的女生,典型的90后代表。我有着双重性格,中国一句话:静如处子,动如脱兔,好像就是形容我的。
我长的一般,淡眉,中等眼,小鼻子,小嘴,长发,黑色,中等胖瘦,有痘痘。
我的成长很平凡,每天过着日出而作,日落而息的生活。
我的兴趣就是看小说,听音乐,看电影,去聆听那些丰富的人类情感世界。那些带有情感色彩的小说我的最爱,从那些文字中我常能感受到一些发生在我身上的事情。我喜欢西洋的吸血鬼,感觉他们比中国的僵尸可爱多了。最近我又迷上了一个中国的网络男歌手——许崇,我总能感觉他那带有阳刚之气的声音中夹杂着他那脆弱的情感。
我的理想就是希望自己事业成功,找个人这辈子好好的疼我,只要在我有限的生命里对我好那就可以了,当然这不是一见钟情就可以的,我从不相信一见钟情这种东西。

13 罗芮婷

 

我的名字叫做罗芮婷,我出生在中国一个山水烟雨之地,我的家乡叫做芜湖,听起来就像无湖一样,但地图上的确有大大小小上百个湖.

14 李杨

 

我喜欢穿灰色或者红色衣服,喜欢安静的地方。稍微长点的头发被我染成了黄色。我喜欢冬天,因为我可以看见雪,雪使我感觉非常舒服。我不喜欢多说话,很多时候只是静静的听着别人在聊着,虽然没有说什么话,但是我都有很用心的聆听。当一个人无聊的时候,我会去找某个美丽的地方,静静的欣赏着…不想让别人了解自己的想法,但是有时候却又感到一丝的孤单,心中有时候很矛盾。在我成长的过程中,音乐对我有着很深的影响。就像周杰伦的很多歌曲,初次听《听妈妈的话》就让我想起了儿时因为住校想家曾经偷偷跑回家的事。《外婆》则让我倍加思念家乡的外婆,怀念小时候外婆送我上学的场景。

14 Li Yang

I like to wear gray or red clothes, and I like quiet places. I dyed my slightly-long hair yellow. I like winter, because I can see snow and the snow makes me feel every comfortable. I don't like to talk too much, but I will listen attentively. When I feel lonely, I will find a beautiful place, and stay there quietly. I don’t like to share my thoughts with other people, but sometimes I do feel lonely, so that’s very controversial. Music has had a strong influence on me. I like Jay Chou's songs. His songs "Listen to my Mother's Words," and "Grandma" reminds me of my childhood and my grandmother.

亲爱的朋友!我是一个比较开朗的男孩,说起自己的长相,也不是怎么特别,五官适中,就是随着时间的流逝带上了近视镜!一年前曾经留着飘逸的长发,而现在相反啦。喜欢锻炼,每天早上和舍友们跑跑步。同时自己也喜欢交朋友,而自己最大的爱好就是喜欢画画,喜欢画油画。自从喜欢上画画就对艺术有了憧憬,不善于语言表达,却能够用画笔把自己所想的东西表达出来。喜欢蓝天,喜欢大师画笔下的世界,在闲暇的时候自己独自喜欢坐在湖边看着落日,感受大自然的美丽……

15 Ma Xiao

16 施思

 

亲爱的加拿大朋友你好!我是一名身材微胖的男生,出生于1992年。但是看起来我比同年的人要成熟的多。我叫施思,身高178cm。我有着黑色的头发,一个圆圆的脸蛋,大大的眼睛,鼻子就比较普通化了,嘴巴呢就更一般了。我喜欢在一个人的时候听听歌,再弹弹吉他,偶尔发发呆。当我认真做一件事的时候不喜欢有人在我身旁,因为我怕被别人打扰。我喜欢科幻的电影,它会让我感觉到世界的奇妙之处。如果问我的理想是什么我想我会说是让我们一家人天天快乐,天天开心,这或许就够了。我的性格比较内向了一些,如果你和我很熟的话你就会觉的我很幽默,如果不熟的话你会感觉我很冷淡。但是我很喜欢交朋友。这就是我。就让我们交个朋友吧!你愿意吗?

I’m positive and optimistic, and I like enjoying myself with my friends. When I was a child, I once was mistaken as a girl. I have small eyes, and one was covered by a fringe. Through my hair, I can see the world vaguely, and I can feel that there are both joys and sorrows in the world. I like fashion, and I like to dress myself in a fashionable style. When I was a child I had a lot of dreams. I wanted to be an astronaut, scientist, and adventurer. I like Miyazaki's animation, such as "Spirited Away", "The City of the Sky". Now I want to draw with my own style. I hope I’ll be successful.

20 王夫冠

你好!外国的朋友,很荣幸能和你一起做这个项目。我叫王夫冠,你也可以叫我Demon.今年20岁。外貌嘛,因为我有点微胖,所以脸方中带圆。浓密的眉毛下有一对炯炯有神的眼睛,鼻子下有一张能说善道的嘴。我性格比较开朗,无论在哪里我都会很好调节气氛,能和很多人相处的很好。我也喜欢乐于助人,只要能帮助,我就会尽力去帮助他。
我家住在船上,我很喜欢水,所以游泳技术还不错。
我喜欢运动,羽毛球、乒乓球都是我擅长的运动,最近我在学校组建一个羽毛球社团。有时候我会穿着轮滑鞋出去溜达,既可以运动又可以欣赏外面的自然风景。但是在看动漫的时候我会很安静,我喜欢看动漫,最喜欢看宫崎骏的作品。喜欢他坚持用手工绘画完成的卡通片。他的动画没有迪斯尼那么花哨,没有那么厉害的电脑特技。宫崎骏笔下的形象是一个个人,而不是一个个没有知觉的卡通。他懂得用什么去打动别人。
我很向往自由自在的生活,我的梦想是有一个自己的工作室,可以随便支配自己的时间,累的时候可以背着自己的行囊,拿着单反相机去旅游,采风……。

20 Wang Fuguan

Hello!!!!! Foreign friends, I'm honored to be with you do this project. My name is Wang Fuguan. You can also call me Demon. I’m 20 years old. I'm a little fat, with round face, dense eyebrows, and a pair of penetrating eyes. I’m talkative, cheerful, and warm-hearted. I get along well with people, and I’m glad to help those who need help.
My family members live in a boat. I love water, and I’m a good swimmer.
I like sports. I'm good at badminton and table tennis. And recently I set up a badminton club in our college. Sometimes I go to the countryside wearing roller blades and enjoying the beautiful scenery there. I like animation, especially works by Hayao Miyazaki. Without high technique and only using hand drawing, Hayao Miyazaki knows how to touch people’s hearts.
I am longing for free life. My dream is to have my own studio, so that I can plan my own time, and if I get tired from work, I can take my luggage and SLR cameras, and travel to any place I want to.

我叫王晓松。现在在视觉传达系广告媒体的插画班。我身高一米七五,长头发、黄头发、方形的脸蛋。我喜欢打篮球。我的平时生活比较简单,大多数时间和朋友在一起,尤其是同个宿舍的。也许是同吃同住的关系,所以会比较聊得来。
我性格比较随和,很健谈,也很慷慨,但是我是个很怀旧的男孩,有时候甚至是一件小小的东西都会勾起我整个的回忆。虽然是个男生,但是细心程度却不输于女生。对待专业作业,我会很认真。我习惯了一个人的独处,我心情低落的时候会选择沉默,或许一天不说几句话。我喜欢一个人坐在电脑旁,然后打开QQ看看哪些人在线,然后再关掉每个分组。有的时候觉得生活变得很无趣,但是生活还要继续,不是吗?

I’m used to staying alone, and when I feel upset, I will keep silence for days. Sometimes I find life boring, but life still goes on, doesn’t it?

25  袁静

我今年20岁,虽是女生,但我从小就留着乌黑的短发,眼睛虽小但视力非常好,小小的嘴巴,个子不是很高。
由于我很痴迷于数学,物理以及化学方面的知识,所以养成了我做事认真严谨的态度。我一看小说就会想睡觉,因此我的文采很差。我的梦想是能成为一名优秀的科研人员,可是后来学了美术,我不得不放弃。现在我只想踏踏实实的学好专业以后能有个稳定的工作就行。
自认为坚强的我内心其实也很脆弱,跌倒了再爬起来是没错,但是情感受伤却很难愈合,所以有时候也会哭的很伤心。
我的人生格言是:“去追求,去奋斗,去拼搏,但不要放弃。”
希望能和你交个朋友,我是短发袁静。

CANADIAN BIOGRAPHIES

 

Massimo Barbieri

I’m a 19-year-old and I think I look like a typical Italian boy: thick eyebrows, brown hair, brown eyes, big nose (but proportional to my face) and a round face.  I’m 5’8”, slim, with shoulder length hair.  I love to draw my own imagined creatures along with different typefaces and logo designs.  I’m a fan of manga and am currently obsessed with Hellsing (the ultimate OVA series).  My favorite manga/anime series of all time include: Neon Genesis Evangelion, Gundam Wing and Fullmetal Alchemist.  Also, I love any and every movie ever made by Hiyao Miyazaki.  I think his storytelling is magical and his skills are unmatched in the animated movie industry.  My dreams include becoming an accomplished concept artist, becoming a seasoned animator, and maybe even becoming a rock start (if there’s still time for that).  I love music styles such as metal, rock, punk and funk. My favorite band is a Canadian one called Protest the Hero.  Recently, I’ve been getting more into environmental awareness and ethical issues because of my girlfriend who is in an environmental program in university.  Also, I’ve been thinking a lot about volunteering some of my time to help organizations I care about and making artworks that might be of use to them in their campaigns in the future.  There are many things I’d like to do but the truth is I’m a little lazy and sometimes too laid back about things.  Sometimes, I’d prefer just going to bars with friends, talk until our brains shut down, and drink microbrewery beer.


Bong Woo Ri

I was born in Seoul, Korea.  I am 19 years old, and I am turning 20 on November 9th.  I have been studying abroad for many years; therefore, I have experienced many different cultures.  My whole family was born in Korea, and we came to Canada on May 28, 2006.  Before coming to Canada, my brother, mum, and I were sent to New Zealand for two years to learn English.  I speak English, Korean and a little bit of French.  Since Montreal is a bilingual city, French here is really important. French for me is the hardest language so far, but I will try my best to learn it.

To help you to illustrate me, I will give you a brief description of my appearance.  I have a round shaped face, with big brown eyes.  Compared to my eyes, my nose, mouth, and ears are small. My skin tone is pretty light compared to other Asians.  I have dark brown hair with a short bob hair cut, and I like to wear vintage clothing and accessories.  I really love doing my nails, therefore, I often draw and paint my nails with a variety of colors. 

I like to paint with watercolors and acrylics and I also like to do origami. 


Tara Bouharevich

I am twenty-two years old, and I’ve always had a passion for art. From the age of five I was always drawing. I also have a love for nature and animals.

I have always felt an internal struggle over what type of career I should pursue as I have a love for both art and the environment. After my first grueling semester studying science, I realized that a position in art was better suited to me. I completed a college degree in fine arts, which has now lead me to study Illustration and Design. Through both programs I have learned a variety of art forms, such as traditional drawing, painting and printing, to more modern art forms such as digital painting, Photoshop, Illustrator, and 3D. Although I appreciate all art forms, and love even to mix some of them, I will always adore painting, both digital as well as traditional.

Besides being a passionate artist, I also like sports and keeping fit.  I believe our body and mind are the most valuable things we will ever own and I love to harmonize the two through meditation, yoga and Pilates. Growing up I was a competitive fencer and participated in many provincial as well as national competitions. In my spare time I like to dance, read, listen to music, and travel.

People from all over the world, over many generations, have come to live in our colourful multicultural city, Montreal. My last name, Bouharevich, is Russian. My grandmother came from Egypt and my grandfather from Russia. My mother’s parents came from the USA as well as from Ireland. When people ask me what my background is, I like to tell them “it’s a little bit of all over the world”!

 

Jana Chagnon

 

My friends say I'm always cheerful and laughing, determined and resilient. I'm friendly, but I'll tell someone if they step on my toes. I'm a bit of an oddity in that I'm one of the rare cases where a girl was raised playing video games and never grew out of it. They're my passion, and have been ever since I beat a particular one called The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time when I was twelve. That's when I decided I wanted to work in the gaming industry and have been working towards that goal ever since.

Now I'm a college student in an intense art program. I generally wear colorful clothing with a mild punkish flare. I also enjoy dyeing my hair all sorts of colors. Right now it's a mix of electric blue and turquoise, which doesn’t look bad with my hazel eyes. I do this because I find normal hair color beautiful but boring, and I love bright, vibrant colors.

When I'm not filling up my sketchbooks with creature and character concepts, I'm coloring a few on my computer using Photoshop, Paint Tool Sai or Illustrator. I'm more experienced with traditional mediums like graphite, ink, pastels, and markers, but I'm beginning to love working with software. When I’m drawing, I’m never without music, and I listen to electronica the most because it helps my imagination flow more freely. My three favorite Disney movies are Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King and Mulan.

 

Jeffry Charles

 

I am tall, slim, with an athletic physique. I am an African American. I despise wearing my glasses. I love my body and think of it as a work of art. I am always trying to be perfect and this makes me anxious. When I become too anxious I start to realize that there is no perfection and that I should enjoy life as beautiful as it is.

I am spontaneous, I love new challenges. People know me as somebody who loves changes. My changes are emotional and philosophical so they also affect my hobbies and my day-to-day plans. I have a great fascination for the unknown and the unexpected. People perceive me as a happy, sociable, and strange human being. I am mostly happy but can get angry on rare occasions.

I practice a Brazilian martial art called capoeira; I used to practice wushu in the chang quan discipline. I love to go out on a nice day and watch the beautiful sky. My other hobbies are: juggling, talking to strangers, playing with kids, flirting with women, thinking of ideas and developing them using mediums such as drawing, painting, and - my favourite - sculpture.

My dream is to be with a woman I love. I want to travel the world, learn many things. I want to contribute artistically to the world and be recognized for it while doing a job I am passionate about. I want to become a free man just like the stranger I met on a bridge one day. He decided to pursue his dream and he became an artist. He did not have many resources but he made great things. He is a big inspiration to me.


Erin Cox

small nose. I wear black framed glasses and usually wear my hair up. My favorite
color is green. I moved to Montreal two years ago to attend the Illustration and
Design program at Dawson College. I grew up in northern Ontario in a small city
and wanted to study art in a city that offered more opportunities and had a more
vibrant art scene. I live with my boyfriend and my cat in a small apartment. I have
two sisters that I am very close to but that I don’t get to see them very often since
I moved. I have loved drawing and painting since I was a small child and I have
been carrying a sketch book around with me since I was in elementary school. I
love to draw people and animals and I usually try to add some humor to my work.
While I prefer to use paint and ink, I have been getting better at computer
generated artwork and really enjoy it. One of the biggest influences in my life has
been my Dad. He is a luthier and builds beautiful guitars, mandolins and other
stringed instruments. When I was small I used to love working beside him
in his workshop. My dream job would be to be a freelance illustrator creating images for magazines and children's books or working as a concept artist.


Laura Czornobaj

I’m 19, turning 20 in January. My hair is shoulder length, wavy and dark brown, I have bangs that slant to the right side of my face.  I’m 5’7’’, my face is kind of square, my nose is small and elegant. My eyes are dark-green and brown, with thick eyelashes; I wear thick black-rimmed glasses with a square frame. My favorite color is purple. I like to wear make-up, mostly lipstick and black nail polish. I enjoy wearing dresses, but I’m usually just in jeans and a t-shirt. I don’t like to stick out, I’m very shy person face to face, and I find it hard to approach people I’m not familiar with. I really enjoy personal time alone, it helps me concentrate and organize my thoughts. I love drawing, reading, and listening to music. In my spare time I also play computer games online with my friends. Some of the games I enjoy are Sims, Minecraft, Ragnarok Online, and Silent Hill. I have a passion for tea, which I enjoy finding, buying and drinking. My tea collection is bordering on extensive. My favorite sports are swimming and biking I enjoy going to the country and hiking, and also to live with my boyfriend. My aspirations aren’t very big – I just want a stable job and foreseeable future, and to start a family of my own. I enjoy working with kids, and perhaps see myself as a teacher one day and in the illustration field.


Mélina Doyon-Gamache

I was born in Montreal, 24 years ago. I was a very shy and introverted teenager. I used my drawings to get people’s attention and recognition.  I’m short, have short hair, and am a bit of a tomboy in a way. I have small features: straight, tiny nose, small hands, and, as some people have told me, big anime eyes! I have very light skin, freckles, and I used to be blond. As I grew older my hair turned darker and I kept on dying it different weird colors (pink, red, blue, purple, black and more). I have a green tattoo of the Nordic Rune called Mannaz on the left side of my neck (I love the color green), and two piercings - a ring in my nose and a pin in my bottom lip. I’m a total geek (anime lover and old-school gamer).  I enjoy a lot of different types of music and movies: hardcore and folk metal, gore and horror movies. I also have a sweet side and I listen to classic, electro and pop music, and watch Disney and Pixar movies. I’ve always been passionate about all types of art expressions: drawing, painting, music, sculpture, comic books and much more. I already have a fine art college diploma. My parents always trusted my choices, and let me take the path that would suit me the best, even though I knew it would be hard.


Emily Gauthier

I have fair skin, almost ivory. My original hair color was brown, but now it’s a deep auburn. My face is shaped like an oval; I have full cheeks. My lips appear plump and my eyes are green, although at times they change to different colors. I was raised by my mother, and never really had a father figure in my life. However, my grandfather taught me to live life to the fullest, and to take advantage of my talents. He exposed me to the arts, as I spent most of my time in his studio fiddling with his crayons and paints. I was very timid and shy when I was younger but slowly became more outgoing as a teen. Although I spend most of my time drawing, I still love to explore other art forms. For me dancing is one of my biggest passions, and even when I couldn’t afford lessons I would watch videos and mimic the dance moves in my bedroom. When I dance I feel like I’m in my own little bubble where all my worries and fears can’t get me. I clearly feel at home on the stage. A dream of mine since I was little was to be part of a company like Pixar, and to create artworks that millions can enjoy. I aspire to spend my life doing what I love to do, and to feel a sense of accomplishment and pride when I’m older.

10  Andrew Goudreau

I’m a fairly tall person, standing at around 5’11”.  I’m half Filipino and half Canadian in origin, so I’ve had a strange childhood switching between both cultures.  I have longish, dark hair that reaches about half way down my neck, and bangs that go straight across my forehead.  I have thick eyebrows with a somewhat heavy brow.  My eyelids are a bit “sleepy” you could say, as they’re naturally relaxed.  I have something like a Roman nose.  I keep stubble on my chin. I often wear button-up shirts with shorts, and that’s how most of my friends identify me from a distance. 

I have a strong passion for video games, and it is one of the reasons I entered this program, to become a video game concept artist.  The fusion of interactivity and creativity completely fascinates me.  Ever since I was a child, I wanted to make video games and I believe that this is the right way for me.

Recently, I acquired a Husky dog from a family that couldn’t take care of her anymore.  Her name is Zelda and she has mostly black-tipped white fur.  My daily life has changed since I got her because Huskies require a lot of exercise every single day.  Sometimes it is a chore, but at the end of the day when you can tell she’s tired but she loves you, I think she’s very worthwhile.

 

11  Naomie Hadida

 

I’m a 19 years old, petite brunette with light freckles and hazel eyes. Recently, I have begun visiting Israel and learning about my Jewish roots.  My dream is to travel and to learn about different cultures and to meet people from around the world.  I’m quite stubborn but generous.  I like to lend a hand when I can, and I go ‘above and beyond’ for those I love.  I grew up with two much older sisters, so I feel as though I am sometimes more mature than another girl my age.  Although I feel more mature, I am always stressed.  On a regular school day, I drink about 2-3 cups of coffee and I am always trying to finish things because I am a little bit of a procrastinator. I love to sleep, but during the school year, I do not get enough sleep (thus the amount of coffee I consume).  I live in the suburbs and my parents allow me to drive their hybrid Toyota Prius.   Like I mentioned before, I have just begun traveling across the ocean, but my mother travels very often to China, India, and Bangladesh (mostly for business). She has told me many stories about her travels and this reinforces my wish to travel and study abroad.

 

12  Valérie Jahchan

 

I am 27 years old. My parents were born in Egypt but I was born here in Montreal.  Their genes managed to drop a hint of olive to my skin.  My hair is long and dark brown. I also have dark brown eyes. My face is oval and somewhat narrow. My lips are on the thin side and my nose has a ‘rounded-point’.  My dark eyebrows have a slight arch to them. Although I am 27 years old, I’ve been told that I look much younger.

I have a hearing impairment that I’ve been born with so I wear hearing aids in both ears.  I am so used to them that I don’t notice them.  They easily blend with my hair so that even others don’t notice them (a good and fun thing when they realize that I can read lips!).

I already have a university degree in Fine Arts. My biggest passions in life are horseback riding, reading, drawing, painting, rock climbing and definitely nature.  I absolutely love animals.  I am known as the ‘lion girl’ because I always draw
lions. I love to laugh and I can have moments where I just can’t stop laughing at myself.

I am in love with my boyfriend whom I live with.  I hope to finish this amazing Illustration & Design program and live in a house full of books and a view of the mountains and the water. I can easily see myself living in countryside (with my favorite country music blaring from a radio on my front porch, or in the middle of a canoe while fishing), for the rest of my days.


13  Hassan Khan

I’m 23 years old and I’m from Karachi, Pakistan. I already have a college diploma in traditional animation. I love learning new things everyday.

I’m presently working on a graphic novel called Red Water. I am also a freelance illustrator and I teach drawing for comics. I fluently speak four languages: Urdu, English, French and Hindi. I have worked on a couple of short comics and one of them, entitled Sunrise, has been published in a local annual collective comic book (Merure – volume 2). Eventually I would like to work for a big comic book company such as Marvel Comics, DC Comics or Dark Horse Comics.

Some of my interests are: concept art, illustration, reading and drawing comics, creative writing, cooking, photography, playing cricket and tennis, and animation. I grew up watching Dragon Ball Z and that inspired me to study 2D animation. I had the privilege of animating the short film Projet Alpha in 2008. You can check out my blog and learn more about what I do at http://hasan-khan.blogspot.com/. I also have accounts such as Twitter, YouTube and DeviantArt.

I have short, spiky dark brown hair and dark brown eyes. I have a tan skin tone (#18 on the Felix von Luschan skin color chart on Wikipedia) and I wear Ray Ban glasses. I dress casually for school, but I like to dress chic (a nice collar shirt with dress pants) when I go out and I even put on a tie occasionally.

 

14  Sonia Kharchi

 

I am turning 20 in December. In order to understand the visual characteristics of my facial features, one must understand that my unique racial background is a factor of not only my outward appearance but of my personality too.  My mother was born a German-French Catholic. My father was born and raised in a complete opposite environment, as he is an Algerian Muslim. Consequently, I am a quite opened minded individual. Essentially, I am fair skinned with extremely dark curly hair and dark brown eyes. I am tall, over 5’7”. I have large eyes with very long lashes and my nose is small in comparison to others but fits my face quite well (actually my nose resembles Cindy Lou Who of Dr. Seuss’s The Grinch Who Stole Christmas). I have a beauty mark on my left cheek, which is a very notable characteristic. All my sisters have it; I have three. As for my interests go, I enjoy the smell of trees and especially the smell of wet grass after a rainy night.  My favorite season is the end of summer, not for the returning to school but for the weather, the sunny days that light up the sky with no severe pressure of theat (but I also enjoy extremely hot days). I admire any day of the year that has a lot of sun in it. I absolutely love high-healed shoes. My favorite color is red (varying in tints depending on my mood), and turquoise (in my opinion, a color that never dies). I plan to graduate this year and to take two months to travel to Algeria, and to Spain and France too. After that, we’ll see as life’s full of surprises.

 

15  Lauren Kleiderman

 

When I was born on August 10, 1992, an average face emerged in Montreal, a city bustling with multiculturalism. My father was born in Slovenia and my mother in Canada to Hungarian and Slovenian parents. My journey began growing up in the suburbs as the younger of two children. I was raised with strong moral values and a strong appreciation of tradition and culture. As a child I lived to laugh and this remained a fundamental aspect of who I am today.

I see the world around me perfectly framed, as I see it through my large and rather bold glasses. My face is a long and oval, with a prominent nose and delicate green eyes. I have dark-blond hair that naturally curls to the length of my shoulders.

At the age of 19 I’ve come to realize the significant role art plays, and will continue to play, in my life. Although I haven’t narrowed the path I wish to take, I am open minded about the future and will see where it will lead me. I enjoy photography immensely, observing and capturing the world and people around me. I enjoy travelling and have been privileged to see many different countries but love returning home to the cultural diversity of Montreal.

In the end I’m just another face with enough ambition to fuel the world.


16  Liu Xin Ran

I am originally from Nanning, Guangxin, China, and have been living in Montreal for the last eleven years. As an immigrant, I had to adapt to a completely new culture. While I became proficient in French and English, my written and spoken Chinese gradually degraded. My identity has been fractured in order to be reconstructed. I am both Chinese and French Canadian, yet I will always stand apart as an outsider in both worlds. This has allowed me to have a different perspective on my environment.

I became interested in a career in the gaming industry as a concept artist at 15. Without further motivation than that very simple desire, I have continued working towards that goal. From the beginning I have been aware of the difficulty of the path I have chosen. Thus, the fear of failure has been my secondary motivator. Studying the visual arts opened my eyes to new possibilities and reshaped my character. In retrospect, my teenage fascination with video games is now but a spark that ignited an even greater passion for drawing and painting. I no longer require a reason to create and study art, it has become part of my nature.
I am now at an interesting crossroads in life, where decisions must be made for the start of my independent adulthood. Many career ramifications lay before me. I feel fortunate to have the chance to experience many possibilities in the years to come.

 

17  Alicia Marulanda

 

I am almost 19 years old,  5’4” in height, and weigh 138 pounds. I have shoulder length curly brown hair, a Roman nose, and because I am near-sighted, I wear thick glasses.  I have a square shaped face and a beauty mark just above my lips.  I am very much enjoying my time studying illustration and design and I’m looking forward to putting my skills to professional use after graduation.  I live with my boyfriend Manolis and our roommate Elisabeth, who is also in my class.  I was recently hired at the clothing store Banana Republic and work there part-time so I can pay for everything I need.  Both the management and my co-workers are very nice and I have enjoyed working there so far.  I also model for figure drawing courses.  Aside from drawing and painting, I am very interested in fashion and literature.  We keep lots of books and magazines in our apartment, and my favorite novel is The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami.  I find the imagery both surreal and beautiful; it is a story that the reader can get lost in.  This past summer my boyfriend and I visited New York City for four days.  We saw beautiful artworks in SoHo, and also visited the American Museum of Natural History which was very informative.

 

18  Alessandro Mastandrea

I’m 25 years old, 5’8” tall, and of Italian origin. I have short dark brown hair and dark blue eyes. The shape of my face is, more or less, oval with a little bit of jaw definition.

 

I enjoy sports and activities as well as ‘working out’ (physical exercise). I generally like to keep active. I also know a lot about computers and I really enjoy video games. I hope to someday be working in the video game industry as a conceptual artist.

I grew up in an environment that was visually inspiring for me. My father owned a comic book store during my early childhood and so he brought me there often. My father saw that I liked to draw many of the characters that I liked so he encouraged me to continue drawing. Since that time, drawing, and art as a whole, has become an important part of my life. I like to think of myself as someone who is idealistic, ambitious, and motivated by a positive outlook on life. I have clear goals and I’m ‘going for them’.


19  Shawn McMullen

I have brown hair and green eyes. Physically, I’m not that active, however, I’m not over weight (in fact, I may be a bit under weight). I used to be a bit muscular in the past because of the constant fights I got into (I’ve obviously calmed down). I’m more of a thinker now and I like to approach things from a logical point of view. I come from a wide European background including: Ireland, Scotland, Italy, Belgium, and England. I love diversity and I like change, things are more interesting that way. I have a great sense of humor and I have a positive attitude. My personal hobbies include: video games, watching TV, drawing, and computer art. I never fail to make someone laugh or smile when I imitate different voices to cheer people up. In terms of music, I like songs that give the feeling of empowerment – the kind of songs that give goosebumps, as well as songs that make you want to smile. My dream for the future is to become an animator in the movie or gaming industries.


20  Mélissa Monderie-Gervais

In appearance, I seem to be a calm and shy, brown haired and brown-eyed girl. But once people get to know me, they realize that I’m energetic and I have a lot of imagination. 

I consider myself both complex and simple (like ‘day and night’). Most of my days depend on my mood, but my mood can change radically. People only need to make me laugh and I will be in a good mood in one second! My friends always say that I have an infectious laugh. Even if sometimes I have an explosive temper, I always try to be a kind person. For me, it is important to help others.

I am passionate about the arts, animation, and nature. I started drawing at a young age. and that’s when I began to learn how to express myself through my art. For me, it is the easiest way to express my feelings. I feel the most peaceful when I am surrounded by nature. Nature can be so beautiful. And when I need to release my stress, I hang out with my friends. I like going downtown and having fun in a crowded place. I cannot live without music. Everywhere I go, I have my best friend with me, ‘Mr. iPod’.

What I like most about animation is that everything is possible; you can use your creativity to the maximum. I have so many projects in my mind that one life will not be enough to be able to do everything. Especially, I would like to travel around the world. My dream is to have different contracts in different countries.

 

21  Isabelle Nadeau-Rivard

 

I am 20 years old and live in Montreal. I would say that I am chubby and I have dark brown hair, which reaches to my elbows. My hair can be straight or curly. My skin is fair and my eyes are hazel and shaped like almonds. I always wear eyeliner on my upper eyelids. My nose is small and delicate. We call it “nez retroussé” in French. My mouth is small but my lips are full; its shape is almost elliptical. My face is round as is also my chin. Sometimes I wear glasses. They are rectangular and the mount is magenta; there are small decorative curls on the frame.

I am a person with a lot of imagination. I love to create stories so I am really interested in comics. I am myself a comic book artist but I have not been published yet. Music is also something really important for me. It helps me to get inspired and stay concentrated. I love humor and I always try to be positive.


22  Louis-Vincent Nantel

I’m a 30 years old male, born and raised in Quebec City where I lived for 27 years. Only recently did I move to Montreal. I’m about 5’7”. My hair is brown and my eyes are blue. I have been working in microbreweries for a little more than six years, as a waiter and a barman. It pleasantly pays the bills, but I do wish to earn a living with my art.

I studied fine arts previously, in both college and university. I grew unhappy with the direction things were going as the type of art I was making ran opposite to what was being done at the contemporary art oriented school I was attending. Now that I’m doing simpler, illustrative art forms again, I’m back to what I like.

I feel like the older brother these days… I’m well over five years older than my classmates, and about the same can be said about my colleagues at the bar where I work. It’s ironic that I’m actually the youngest of my siblings (who all have kids of their own now). My oldest friends from childhood are still in Quebec City.

If I had to describe my personality, I would say that I’m a grounded, yet anxious person. I can be funny and spontaneous, even silly, but I also long for control, coherence, and understanding.

It’s hard to sum our life in a few words, but I tried.


23  Jennifer Noble-Landry

I'm a 21-year-old girl born December 23rd. I have a long face and nose, green eyes, and wear rectangular glasses. I keep my golden brown hair to just passed my shoulders. My hair curls near the bottom end and is shaped in bangs at the top, cut straight across below my eyebrows. During the week, while I go to school, I live in the city with a friend. I have no car, I simply take the bus and metro system. I live with my mother and brother outside the city during the weekend and summers. This is so I can see them and work at a local convenience store so I can afford school. I have a black and white cat that I consider both my baby and a guard dog. I've had him for four years and I love to care for him. I also enjoy watching Japanese anime and reading manga. I enjoy it so much that I often pass my time drawing fanart, writing fanfiction and when the time comes for conventions, I make costumes. I share this hobby with fan groups online who also share their fanwork. I love seeing and learning about new artworks. As we go through the program of Illustration and Design, we do many projects I enjoy. It's difficult to know which career path I will choose. I know that animation excites me but I need to work on it a lot more if I ever want to do it as a career. I would love to work in an animation studio creating something that others will enjoy as I have.


24  Amanda Nunes

I am 21 years old and of Italian origin. I live with my mom and two younger sisters.  I have a German Sheppard dog.  I am 5’6” tall with blond hair and light brown eyes.  My biggest interest is pre-1970s ‘muscle cars’ (American muscle).  I would love to have a career in restoring cars; I view car restoration as an art.  My favorite muscle car is the 1965 GTO.  I would also like to do airbrushing on motorcycles.  I have been taking oil painting classes since I was ten. I would like to do something that involves painting as a career, not just for my personal work.  I am also a big animal lover. My favorite animal is the wolf and I prefer dogs to cats (although I like both).  I would like to have a Husky, which is my favorite type of dog.  I have two tattoos: one is located above my elbow and is a number 13 in roman numerals (XIII). The other tattoo is of a peacock with cherry blossoms, it runs down my chest. I like ‘rock & roll’ music of the 1960s to 1980s.  I am a big fan of action movies and comedies.  In the future I would love to have a house on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean, and have a big family.


25  Jérémy Pilote-Byrne

I am a twenty-year-old Caucasian male with copper hair and blue eyes. I am tall and slim, dress conservatively, and am rather reserved. I like to wear bow ties. I like the Victorian era, as well as the British monarchy and everything that pertains to it. I love jewelry and anything that is ‘beautiful’ and well made: fashion, the human form, architecture, the Universe, biology, and geology. I read a lot of books: mostly science fiction, fantasy, historical fiction and poetry. Despite liking these seemingly ‘normal’ interests, I do appreciate a bit of gloom and unconventional ideas once in a while. Themes of tragedy and carnage create a soothing effect on my mind (not that I like the violence – only the sheer emotion created by it). These themes allow me to sit down and put onto paper what is floating in my subconscious. I usually listen to music when drawing and sometimes get inspiration from the lyrics and draw something relating to them, anything from a detail to an entire subject. I am a man of few words and can’t extrapolate even to save my life.


26  Pascal Xavier Poirier

I live near Montreal where I happen to study, but I am not a citizen of the city. My hometown is called Laval and it’s not far from the large city of Montreal. My first language is French, but I also speak English.

I would describe my physical appearance as being a tall and athletic 19 years old guy. I have elongated physical traits and angular facial features. I have blue eyes and wear small rectangular glasses.

I hope to become a freelance illustrator. My personal ambition as an artist, or what I would depict as my ideal job, is to create socially conscious art as an editorial artist.

Outside the sphere of education and work, I have interests in other domains. For instance, I love sports and their atmosphere. The sports that I had the chance to practice include: hockey, lacrosse, and basketball. Personally, I love the competitive aspects of sports because they presents a safe and controlled way to evacuate the stress of the daily routine of life. I also really enjoy the sphere of culture. I read books and watch movies when I have leisure time. Absorbing as many exterior influences of our world as possible is a big motivation in life because there is so much to learn from other people and their way of thinking.

 

27  Elise Remillieux

 

I was born In Montreal on August 7, 1991. I grew up in the south of France for a good part of my childhood and later returned to Montreal. I am the child of a French father from France and an Italian mother. I was diagnosed with advanced dyslexia and dyscalculia.  I was smart, but I had trouble with reading and writing, all because I’d invert letters and my brain made it seem like it was normal. As for the dyscalculia, I can learn multiplication and division everyday, but in a couple of hours my brain erases everything. Over time I learned tricks to get around my disabilities.

Growing up I would draw places of back home in the south of France, it made me happy. I love the history of my family’s village. I love the history of Europe, the cathedrals, the architecture, and the stories. I am not a very religious person but I love drawing and sculpting angelic figures, unlike my own figure, as in my teenager years I was diagnosed with scoliosis. My spine was curved and crooked so I wore a medical brace and was known as the “metal detector” at my high school.

Since then I have gotten rid of the metal body brace and my reading and writing are very much improved. I have three best friends that have always stood by my side. I’ve been with the same boyfriend for almost eight months. I’m hopeful and confident we’ll stick together for a long time. My favorite colors are light turquoise, (like my eyes), and burnt auburn (like my hair). I love angels and I hate people who judge others before getting to know them. I am living my dream as an Illustrator.

 

28  Stephen Robusto

 

I am 21 years old, born and raised in Montreal.  My origins are from the south of Italy. I am about 5’8” with a slim body structure and have very dark traits.  I am an energetic and outgoing person who enjoys spending time with his friends.  My plans are to finish school and to travel to Europe to either work or continue my education.  I would like to also study the music industry.  My goal in life is to have my own art studio where I could create my art but also produce my music with a team of illustrators and music producers.  One of my biggest passions in life is electronic music and being a DJ.  I enjoy the nightlife and I am a very sociable person.  One of my main objectives in life is to release a song and to get signed to a record label.  When it comes to music, some of my favorite artists would have to be Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso, and Axwell. Creating art and music has always been a passion of mine.  Working as an illustrator and a freelance artist in my own studio would be ideal for me.  I would like to perfect the art of matte painting in Photoshop as well. Digital art is probably my favorite medium.  I am a big Apple consumer; I enjoy working with Mac because I could use all the Adobe programs and all my music software in one reliable product.

 

29  Louis Sciannamblo

 

My first name is French and my last name is Italian.  My parents immigrated to Quebec from Italy, and my father studied here to get a Master’s degree in French literature.  I grew up in the suburbs of my city (Montreal),  into a 19 year old scrawny, white Anglophone. As you can imagine, I like to draw and I hope to be able to produce children’s books one day, as well as become a freelance illustrator. I have been strongly influenced by Aesop’s Fables: a Classic Illustrated Edition; this book inspired me to want to make books for children.

I like to listen to music, and some of my favorite musicians include: DubFX, Lupe Fiasco, Tool, Florence and The Machine, Laura Marling, and Protest the Hero.  I find I focus best while listening to music, and I made all of my best drawings while listening to music – it is incredibly inspiring and stimulating.  I also enjoy reading a lot.  Over the summer vacation, I read six different novels while on the bus and metro, or at home on the couch.  I’m interested in ideas, and literature is, in my opinion, the most direct access one can have into a person’s mind.  I am currently reading On the Road by Jack Kerouac, and Teach Us to Outgrow Our Madness by Kenzaburō Ōe.


30  Élisabeth Simard

I am 19¾ years old and 5’ and 1 ½” tall. Call me Eli or Lizzy or Lily. I am French speaking and much prefer French to English because English-speaking people sometimes misunderstand me.

I wish I were a ninja. My hero is definitely Master Yoda (Star Wars), living proof that power can come out of a tiny person like me.  But power is not always a good thing.  Power of money, for example, is a bad thing.

I am not from Montreal.  I am from the countryside, where trees are not an endangered species. I miss my family sometimes, even though I see my parents almost every weekend.  I guess I am still a kid.  I have an older sister who is also my best friend.  I like being in nature more than anything and I like to run really, really, fast when I am sad or angry.  But I am usually happy and fun to be with too.


31  Chloé Szemes

I am a 20-year-old girl aspiring to become a tattoo artist. My skin is very pale for I do not step out in the sun very much, and my hair is jet black with a blond streak on each side of my head. My friends say that most of my expression shows through my big greyish-blue eyes, for they are one of my strongest facial features. I’m of average height and body type. A tattoo of a peacock decorates my left shoulder blade. I’m very into 1940s-1950s rocker style and I tend to show that through the clothes I wear, my make-up, and the way I style my hair. I’m very into “B” horror movies, zombies, and everything that has a hint of macabre humor, and ‘’kitsch’’. My hobbies include baking, drawing, listening to music, and hanging out in the city nightlife. I’m very in love with life, and what I cherish most of all is the environment. The future of this planet is for me, more important than my own. I live in a quiet suburb so I travel on my ‘long board’ most of the time. This new passion allowed me to design an online catalog for a local company that produces high quality ‘custom boards’. I have also an apprenticeship at a small tattoo shop where I plan on pursuing my dream job. Overall, I’m not the ‘girly-girl’ type (not into ‘pink ponies’), but I still project a feminine image.


32  Melissa Waldron

I am 23 years old. I have shoulder length light brown hair, an oval face, blue-grey eyes, and a button nose. I’m 5’4” and have an average build. I love to wear hooded sweaters and jeans. I’m a fourth generation Canadian and my heritage is: English, French, Scottish, Polish and German.

I have a college degree in fine arts. I hope to be an illustrator and get a job in London, England, so I can do what I love and be with my boyfriend who lives there. My hobbies are gaming on the computer, drawing, and listening to all kinds of music (except rap). I have pet cat (Trace) and a pet dog (Rosie). I love to travel but I haven’t been to too many places. I’ve been to New York twice and I’ve been to London twice. I hope to get my pilot’s license one day.

The hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life is say goodbye to my boyfriend; I cried for a month and a half. The best thing I ever did was work with war veterans and the elderly; I did activities with them, including, art therapy.

I am very emotional and get very invested in whatever I do. I love to bake and I adore chocolate. I love to laugh and I love comedy and theatre. I’m a huge history enthusiast and enjoy reading about the past and looking at old architecture (I would live in a museum if I could). I love waterfalls and mountains. I also love Dr Who and drinking tea.

I was born in Montreal, Canada on September 1st, 1989. My parents emigrated from Guangzhou, China. What makes me a unique person? I was born deaf. My parents discovered my deafness when I was two years old. Being deaf is a major part of my life.  I cannot communicate with people in a normal way. I went to a special education school that used American Sign Language as their communication method. I was one of a few deaf children who were lucky to learn sign language as my first spoken language and to have caring, hearing parents who wanted to communicate with me in my early life. I received a cochlear implant via surgery when I was six years old. I was taught to recognize sounds and learned to talk. It was very hard work. Oral training is a useful tool to communicate with hearing people but I prefer sign language because it is a visual language and native to deaf people. Because of its visual nature, it influences my perception of art and of the visual world. I love to read a lot and learn new things such as art techniques.  I also love to go out with my deaf friends. My future goal is to become an illustrator of children’s books. A picture is very effective way to communicate and so simple for deaf people to understand, even deaf children. My favorite quote is “A picture is worth a thousand words”.

I am just under six feet tall and weigh about 180 pounds. I have dark hair and brown eyes. I have a tattoo on my left forearm. I like to draw.

I’ve lived in Montreal all my life and I’ll probably still be here for another couple of years. Ideally, I would like to experience a little bit of everything, and everywhere, in my life. I haven’t seen much of the world yet, but from what I can tell, Montreal suits me just fine for now.

I used to be a big ‘metal head’. I have recently shied away from bands like Hatebreed, Chimera, and Unearth, but ‘metal’ will always be close to my heart. Nowadays, my taste in music is relatively mellow but I occasionally enjoy some ‘angry rap’.

For as long as I can remember, I have been a ‘nerd’. From video games to epic fantasy, if it’s nerdy, chances are I’ll enjoy it and I think this comes through in my art. My main sources of inspiration, besides other artists, are: video games, science fiction and fantasy movies, and books. My goal as an artist is to someday work in the film industry as a concept artist. The idea of creating whole worlds and bringing ideas together really interests me. One of the companies I would love to work for one day is WETA. They were the artists behind much of the visual direction in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and Avatar.

    To all the participants from Suzhou, China and from Montreal, Canada:  You have faced many challenges including tight deadlines, illness, technical considerations and responsibilities outside the project that also demanded your time and attention.  Through all of this, each and every participant produced artwork for this exciting project, and the support teams in both locations helped made the exhibition possible.  You should all be proud.  A heartfelt thanks to all from Frank Mulvey, exhibition coordinator on the Montreal side.

    I didn’t get to look at all the pictures yet but, I really enjoyed looking at these images. On top of that, because it is art done by some of our Dawson College students I get to see some of my friends piece of work and just to enjoy it even more.
    I really think this theme/idea is very smart. Getting to experience something with people that are in the other part of the world, and having both participants doing something they enjoy doing is also great. If this was asked to few random students in Dawson or in China, I don’t think it would have the same feeling to it. I think it is also great that, instead of just showing their art then just forgetting about it, it is actually kept on a website. This is good for the students and also for the people looking at their art.It is good for the students because they get to keep their art not just anywhere but where people can admire and enjoy what they have done.
    Seeing people from completely different country work together is a great opportunity. Also it is great to see different way of portraying art from a different country.

    The concept of this exhibit is really unique. I found it quite interesting to see how incredibly different each interpretation could be. It was a short text to work on, so the students had to get very imaginative I guess, which must have been challenging. It’s also funny to see how we tend to project our own self-images and culture when drawing someone else. Alot of the Canadian version of the Chinese students look very Americanized, and vice versa. Two pieces that really struck me were Melina’s and Jiang’s and Massimo’s and Cai’s. In the first, the ship image juxtaposed with the airy portrait drawings looked really neat together. In the second, especially in the first two prints of Melina, the colors and styles work beautifully together, and the imagery in Melina’s prints is really special. Overall, this was a really special exhibit.

    The diversity in art styles is truly amazing in comparison to one another. Many of the Dawson students that are Asian themselves have noticeably Asian styles and techniques to their artworks much like the students at the Suzhou Art & Design Technology Institute, even though some (based off their biographies) have lived in Montreal for the majority of their lives there are still traces of asian techniques. It’s incredible to see that with such little information that these artists have such inspiration as to create such detailed and wonderfully descriptive pieces of people they barely even know on the complete opposite end of the world. It’s quite remarkable collection of artwork and a well organized online exhibition.

    It is an amazing project. As the title of this project says “Two Worlds”, the artworks in this project are from two countries (Canada and China) separated by the vast geographic distance. Therefore, this project is like a bridge which establishes the channel for the two cultures to be better understood by each other through exchanging the artworks of the students in the Suzhou Art & Design Technology Institute in China and of the Dawson College in Montreal, Canada. As a viewer, I really enjoy looking at these images. The purpose to look at the images is not to identify who is actually presented in the artwork, but sense what the artist is trying to express. I think this is the power/charm of the art which can override the barrier of language, difference between cultures.
