Inspired by Leonard Cohen
The invitation to feature my work at the 2008 International Leonard Cohen Event was the catalyst that brought paintings, poetry, music, dance, film and animation together. I was given the opportunity to assemble a creative team of choreographers, dancers and technicians that made my paintings come alive.
Larisa Sembaliuk Cheladyn is an accomplished artist who has had the opportunity to create projects around the world. She is well known for her watercolour paintings of flowers – poppies, sunflowers, and endangered species are her specialty.
Larisa’s passion for poppies began with her first exhibit “A Festival of Poppies” which was hosted in Edmonton and Winnipeg in 1993. The theme has continued ever since.
