Painted Terracotta Army Unveiled

Terracotta Warriors Unveiling Tiana Front

The rain stayed away and I had a lovely morning in downtown Vancouver with family and friends at the official unveiling of 29 painted Terracotta Warriors. They looked a little scary at first, all covered in black drapes, but as the artists and our sponsors pulled off the covers the army emerged in full colour. It was great to see the statues in formation, and have the chance to view the artists hard work in one location, before they are distributed around the city. Maps are available from the BC Lions Society for Children With Disabilites to help you find the warriors around town over the next few months.

I love having the opportunity to talk with people as they are looking at my art, to explain my process and ideas, and receive their comments and praise. There was a lot of press there yesterday as well. I was photographed several times and had an interview with The Epoch Times.  Here are some links I’ve found so far:

The Vancouver Sun – article, video, and photos:  http://www.vancouversun.com/life/Terracotta+army+Vancouver+streets/6512586/story.html?tab=PHOT

24 Hours Vancouver – article, map, and photos. Go to the gallery for all the photos. I’m in the first one with the little girl. I’m in the back wearing a black coat. Several photos show my warrior “Wu Chang”. Not full on but he’s there! Dad got in a photo too!  : http://vancouver.24hrs.ca/News/local/2012/04/24/19674136.html
