Semiahmoo Library is proud to be displaying works by Allan Turton for the month of June.
Allan Turton is an artist from rural Ontario.
His artwork is an in-depth exploration of light and shadow. He enjoys working with various media and developing subtle methods of layering and articulating visual concepts.
Allan graduated from the University of Toronto with an honours BSc. in neuroscience, this as part of his adolescent dream of becoming a neurosurgeon. By the time he was admitted to Medical School, Allan had reclaimed his youthful identity as an artist, having been largely inspired by life and culture in the city of Toronto.
The years following his undergraduate were spent learning the dynamics of small business, while honing his technique as a producer of fine art. In 2017 he completed his first national tour “from Bonavista to Vancouver Island” throughout which he produced and collaborated with artists from across Canada.
He now resides in White Rock, BC, where he has discovered a love for life in the lower mainland. 2018 will see the development of this love, as well as the production of a home studio and preparation for a second national tour in 2019.
Allan is generally open to working with clients and collaborating with fellow artists. He offers lessons, advice and inspiration for those who wish to develop their own entrepreneurial capacities, and encourages all people to shine their own type of light.
