Shi Le is a professional artist and an art educator. He received a bachelor’s degree in fine art at the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute of China and a Master’s at the University of Waterloo. Shi Le has been teaching fine arts in various post-secondary institutions including Lakehead University, Queen’s University and the Sichuan Fine Arts Institute.
Shi Le's landscape painting depicts scenes of pastoral beauty formed around immediate surrounding in South Ontario. Through his painting, he is re-interpreting the tradition of Canadian landscape painting. To him, “landscape is a recreation of the moment in memory that captures my emotion in response to the truthfulness of nature. From Creek series to the inner woods and grass land, the personal response and understanding to my surrounding are central. Through a palette knife-stroke and flat brush-stroke, I hope to reactivate on the canvas the fascination that the landscape of Ontario has drawn on me.”
