Kwai Lake


Contemporary Canadian Artist

I was raised in a rural area of Vancouver Island, studied studio art at Camosun College, and received a Double Major in History in Art and Philosophy at the University of Victoria. I am represented by Ricco/Maresca Gallery in New York. My paintings are in collections across Canada, in the United States, the UK, Germany and Australia.

In kindergarten, I was told to stop painting so much and go play house. I now play house in Victoria with my wife, two daughters, and son. I still can't stop painting.
