From ancient cultures are born revolutionary sounds. Driven by a determination to re-imagine songs of the ages as sounds for our age, Greek-Canadian Chairman George presents a unique form of artistic fusion – one where the bouzouki cohabits with the pipa, where melodic Greek songs are performed in Mandarin, one where there are no borders. It’s a Mediterranean cruise up the Yangtze, and this is the soundtrack. In an era of too much conflict, Chairman George brings worlds together in celebration. And in dance.
Based on Απόψε στις ακρογιαλιές by Vassilis Tsitsanis.

Sneak a peek into what I’ve been working on for the past few months/years. Tonight at Shanghai. This interactive installation is called “illuminating our ancestors” it is an old discarded Chinese chandelier I repurposed. Fire, incense and smoke are often used to honour our ancestors in ceremony. In this piece, I hope to achieve a similar sense of ceremony using the chandelier light, sourced images of my family and technology to honour our ancestors. #myartprocess#artottawa#chinatownottawa#donkwanart#canadianart#illuminatingart @ Shanghai Restaurant

Bessie Blue sees spots, but you should see art! My art, in fact. Please come on down to the Shanghai Restaurant on Thursday, March 29 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. to see my animals on parade. I’ll be there, hanging out and eating noodles. Stick around, look at the paintings, chat, maybe have some Chinese food and a drink. Then roll up your sleeves and get ready to dab! From 8:30 p.m. there will be fun, games and glamour when the marvelous China Doll hosts an evening of bingo. It doesn’t get any better than this!
I will be donating my proceeds from the sales of the paintings in this show to St. Luke’s Table, a community service that provides meals and support to those in need. St. Luke’s Table is also located in Chinatown. http://www.stlukestable.ca/
