New artist : Mei Han
For art lovers, the Perreault Gallery is synonymous with paintings by masters and modern artists, such as Jean-Paul Lemieux or Françoise Nielly. But on your next visit to the Gallery, in addition to enjoying beautiful paintings, you’ll have the opportunity to admire sculptures as well! Indeed we are welcoming a new artist in the Perreault family: Mei Han, a Montreal artist who specializes in motivational artistic bronzes.
Mei Han’s goal is to promote positive values through her artwork. The artist says, ” I think no matter what we do, a positive attitude is essential – I am a positive person. I was a young entrepreneur and later on worked for international corporations to broaden my horizons. Every step of the way, I benefitted a lot from positive attitude; it helps me to overcome difficulties and drive myself to reach my goals. I was so touched by great motivational people, so I want others to be able to feel the great power within themselves too.”
Each original piece is handcrafted and expresses a positive message to drive individual excellence, pursuit of success and determination. Made in fine bronze, the sleek pieces create beautiful effects with their metallic colors. Mei Han says, ” I am fascinated with bronze art because of its complexity and long processes. It’s exactly the same as our lives : we need to shape ourselves with good values, go through pressures, corrections, grind and shine..!”
Mei Han founded her studio in 2014 in Montreal, Canada. However, she uses an ancient technique: “Today lost wax method is more than 3000 years old! Bronze art is passed to generations. I use lean yet luxurious style to focus on the message expressed, meanwhile give it a new life with rich color effects. Bronze is classic but can be sleek and trendy too!”
Where does Mei Han take her inspiration? “I associate positive values with the characters of animal, sports etc., for example, Vision, Eagles have keen vision can detect prey up to 3.2 km away; Fearless, panther is not afraid to challenge bigger animal who has tremendous courage. Once you become fearless, your life becomes limitless; Love for lions couple, because in animal world, lions are family originated, they have high emotional quality to support each other. A lion’s roar can be heard from 8km away, so here I encourage people to speak out your love loudly!”
This is the first time in 10 years that the Perreault Gallery offers sculptures. We can bet this collaboration will last a long time; as the artist says ” This is just the beginning, I have endless passion to create endless “touch your soul” motivational bronze art to bring you wisdom, courage, and inspiration.”
