Asian Roots Trio, A.R.T. for short, is a showcase of our Asian narrative. Each of us has our own distinct story about our Asian heritage since we all have unique backgrounds and experiences. Although we did not search each other out, we all came to an intersection through our common interest in traditional Asian culture. Our choice of mediums, including oil painting, drawing, and watercolour painting, form a diverse yet cohesive vision of traditional Asian aesthetics as we tell the story of our Asian Roots.
We are a group of Asian and Asian-Canadian artists who came together through our mutual interest in expressing Asian culture through art. Our project aims to display the beauty of Asian history, show pride in our Asian roots, and build cross-cultural understanding. Amid growing anti-Asian racism in Canada, it has never been more important to strengthen empathy and understanding within the community.
