The paintings of Don Li-Leger reveal the artist’s intimate knowledge and deep sensitivity to the often hidden realms of nature.

Born and raised in British Columbia, he has painted since childhood, focusing initially on birds and animals of his native province.

In later years, extensive field trips to the Orient and to wildlife sanctuaries throughout North America extended his vision – and the scope of his subject matter.Recently, his work has taken a new departure, with figurative etchings and more improvisational mono-prints and paintings.

Li-Leger’s formal training includes studies at the Vancouver School of Art and the Banff Centre School of Fine Art, and studies in plant ecology at Simon Fraser University.

His work has been featured in exhibitions throughout North America, and is represented in many private collections.

Li-Leger works from the CrescentHeights studio/home, which he shares with his wife, Cora, who is also an artist.

The Oriental Visions Paintings Series

The paintings in this series grew out of my intensive involvement with monoprints, where I improvised and combined various imagery with broad areas of rolled-on saturated colour. Here, I have returned to painting, in my desire to integrate the spontaneity and liveliness of Oriental brushwork that has long inspired and influenced me.

Using Chinese as well as Western bristle brushes, I apply acrylic paint and gels on canvas, often layered transparent colour or rice paper collage to achieve desired effects. As with much of my work, nature remains an underlying theme. In some paintings the calligraphy is taken from ancient and Chinese poems, and reflects my interest and studies in Asian painting,
travels, and philosophy.
