Su Orlov – Nanaimo, BC
Born in Ukraine, Su Orlov’s heritage taught her we are all a part of everything in this place we call home: every leaf, every raindrop is connected with every living soul.
“As an artist, I try my best to depict this love and sacred connection in my paintings,” she says.
Moving to Canada from Ukraine in 2009 was the most significant event in Su’s artistic career, opening new opportunities to express more freely what she wanted to say through her art.
The world inspires Su. “There’s always something I want to capture – whether it’s a facial expression, the eyes or pose of the model, how tree branches sway, the unusual colour in the sky or just the sound of wind in the grass.”
