Using everything from ink on paper to oil on wood, figurative painter Mandy Tsung creates captivating works that convey a strong passion and energy. The Vancouver-based artist creates all kinds of lively scenes that blend reality with imaginative landscapes filled with colorful swirls.
Featuring solely women as her subjects, Tsung strives to recreate ideas of how a woman is perceived in today's world. Her expressive drawings and paintings are filled with emotion and, from wide-eyed beauties to more dreamy figures, each powerful portrait represents a combination of sensual desire merged with feminine strength.
She says, “Ever since I was a young girl, surrounded by literature, magazines, and comics which depicted captivating women, I've felt the desire to both emulate and override the imagery that informs my view of what it is to be a woman.”
