Ian Wright has been creating vibrant and energetic watercolours for over 20 years.
Landscapes of familiar places is his favourite theme, to bring the viewer into the painting and experience the settings they know and love, in an impressionistic and vibrant tone.
The goal of the work, is to allow the viewer a second glance at scenes taken for granted.
To bring alive, and to enhance the landscape of every day life.
King St Streetcar
It's rush-hour. The tired office workers and shoppers pack on the crowded streetcar on their way home.
A cold grey November mist hangs in the sky as the bright red Streetcar cuts through the dreary downtown core.
Caught red handed, going through garbage bins, crossing streets in search for the next meal. Cute and cuddly yet wild and dangerous.
These nocturnal companions live on the flip side of Toronto's urban jungle.
A mid February blizzard blankets the city with white powdery snow. The streetcar soldiers on, picking up passengers seeking refuge into it's warm glowing interior as they seek warmth and shelter and a comfortable journey home as the snow falls on the other side if the window.
