Wanru Kemp



I am a landscape painter currently based in Okotoks, AB, Canada. I was born in China and began my academic art training with my father at the age of nine. Growing up in northeast China, I continued my training throughout high school and university, focusing on a wide range of visual art pursuits including Chinese calligraphy, photography, graphic design and painting.
My life journey next took me to Bangkok for five years, where I explored the vast beauty and complexity of the cities, oceans and jungles that define the south-asian continent. In 2016, I embarked on a new adventure and moved to Canada. Landing on the west coast, and then moving to Alberta, I was captivated by the contrasting beauty of the Pacific ocean shadowed by the coastal mountains and the towering Rockies juxtaposed with the prairie vistas.

Artist Statement

I paint inspiration from my travels throughout Asia and Western Canada, and strive to capture the essence of each landscape I encounter through my paintings. My work is characterized by a blend of minimalism and fine art techniques, evoking a sense of stillness and inner peace while inspiring a profound appreciation for the natural world.
