After The Rain Jasper Alberta
by Elsie Baer
"The reference for this painting came from a trip to Jasper, AB several years ago. It was Autumn, my favourite season. A bit of a storm came up so we pulled over at Cottonwood Slough to wait it out. It wasn’t too long before the clouds rolled away and the sun came out. And what a sight to behold. The rain combined with the warm autumn day gave the middle to background a misty atmosphere. It was beautiful. I grabbed my camera and took quite a few pictures at this site. They provided me with lots of information and this painting is the end result."

ARTIST: Bi Yuan Cheng

RESIDES:  BC, Canada

EDUCATION: ZiangXi Art University, Bachelor’s degree in Art.
Bi was taken under the wing of one of China’s most prestigious art professors to learn landscaping, watercolor and oil. This mentorship would go on another ten years and prove to be a great factor in Bi’s later successful career in art.

Born in 1957 and raised in Jinan, China, Yuan Cheng Bi’s career as an artist of various mediums began in his home country. Under the guidance and encouragement of his father, Bi began practicing art at age five.

By 1975, Bi had already established himself as an accomplished art instructor in Jinan’s Art Club. Dozens of Bi’s pieces were collected by the ZiangXi University’s art museum during the 80s..

After graduating in 1983, Bi went on to work in landscaping and sculptural design at Shandong Architectural Company. In 1985, Bi’s sculpture titled “Teasing Swan” received second place in a provincial art competition and was recreated in marble, standing two meters tall for the City of Jinan’s Central Park.

Bi’s success in sculpture continued on the next year when he was chosen fro over one hundred competitors from around the nation to design the sculptural landmark for Shandong Stadium – the province’s largest sports facility. The finished product was a metal and concrete sculpture standing thirty meters high, symbolizing the unification of common people through sport. His work for the city continued on in 1989 for China’s National Day, when Bi designed a fountain in Jinan Centre Square filled with water lilies, the city’s official flower.

With his rising career in sculptural design, in 1987 the Province of Shandong gave Bi the nation’s highly distinguished and recognized title as a Chinese Art Master.

In 1989 Bi was accepted into the prestigious Chinese Encyclopedia of Art.

Immigrating to Canada in 1990 was a big step for Yuan Cheng Bi. He settled in Edmonton, Alberta for a period of 18 years and presently lives in Victoria, British Columbia. Bi started his own art studio in 1992 and works predominantly in oils and acrylics as well as mural painting. For the last ten years Bi has painted over fifty murals throughout Alberta, one of the most notable at The International Edmonton Airport and the Drayton Valley legion.

Bi Y Cheng has been commissioned by various corporations. In 2006 – 2007, he created ten commissioned paintings depicting their history for the new June Warren Building in Edmonton, Alberta. He created four conceptual paintings for Ready Engineering depicting the history of engineering in the world. He has often been called upon for his skill in capturing an abstract idea or a definitive portrait.

ARTIST: Cameron Bird

RESIDES: British Columbia

BIOGRAPHY: Cameron Bird has grown up with a passion for the outdoors. He began his career with sketching, which he continues to this day as reference for his larger studio oils and acrylics. His formal art training took place at Emily Carr College of Art and Capilano College where he studied commercial art; as well he completed studies in professional sign painting.

Each year Cameron gathers reference for his work while fishing, camping and hiking in the mountains and outdoors. A particular interest for Cameron is to carry his paint box with him and capture the subjects first hand.

Having studied many artists from history, Cameron is drawn to the work of the Illingworth Kerr, Maynard Dixon, Emily Carr, Carl Rungius and in particular Canadian artist Keith C Smith. Cameron studied with KC Smith for over ten years. KC helped Cameron find the knowledge and courage to produce work of power and simplicity. KC always taught him to simplify and make each brush stroke count. Cameron has always admired the use of bold color and heavy impasto.

Cameron worked as a pack horse guide in the mountains to provide him with the first hand material and reference for his paintings. He believes this experience in the wild gives his work an added authenticity and true appreciation for nature.

Cameron has been painting professionally since 1989 and full time since 1999. Cameron has had many one man and group exhibitions and is represented in a number of art galleries. He currently lives in the interior of British Columbia with his family and continues to capture and explore the wild and its animals.

ARTIST: Darrell Bush

EDUCATION: Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Northern Illinois University

His career hit the ground running in 1987, after winning two national stamp competitions for the state of Minnesota, and Idaho. Darrell’s success continued when he was named among America’s 12 most popular artist by four different national art publications.  Art publications such as USArt magazine conducted these polls annually by surveying North American art galleries, and placed Darrell with high rankings for several years. The same publication named him a Rising Star in 1995.  Inform Art magazine named him one of the Top Ten Hottest New Artists in 1994. Darrell’s work has also been juried into many fine art shows where he has received several “Best of Show” awards. In 1997, Darrell was named “Artist of the Year” at the Wildlife, Western, and Americana Art Show in Minneapolis, MN.

Two of his lithographs hang in the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and his work was also part of a special reception at the prestigious Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Actor Burt Reynolds and celebrity animal expert Jack Hanna also own his work.

Darrell has also contributed several print editions to The Boy Scouts of  America fund-raising programs. In addition, a number of conservation organizations have also benefited from his generosity including The National Fish and Wildlife Federation, Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever and The National Wild Turkey Federation. Most recently Darrell was selected as a featured artist for The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

Currently Cabela’s Sporting Goods Co. has featured Darrell’s art on 17 masters catalog covers the last three years, and has commissioned the 2013 covers as well.
