About Andrea Ng
There are no upcoming events
Andrea Ng is a visual artist and pianist in Toronto, Canada. Andrea has shared a passion for art since childhood, where pencil drawing created her first window into the visual arts.
Self taught at a young age, Andrea took advantage of being from an artisan family, and growing up in downtown Toronto to always immerse herself in the artistic atmosphere of old downtown. Andrea's first public art displays, were a selection of woodcut prints selected to be shown at the Toronto Harbourfront Centre and a selection of her Garden Contours at Toronto's City Hall at the age of just 14. Later while studying at high school, she had the opportunity to learn from private teachers around Toronto in mediums including pencil, charcoal, acrylics, and oils. Since the completion of her education at The University of Toronto and The University of Waterloo, Andrea coupled her educational background in English Literature and Women and Gender studies with her passion of the visual arts.
"I love the acrylic medium and paint in the abstract realism style, using the canvas as a pictorial space to express my obsessions with different psychological states of the mind; particularly those of the diminished consciousness that often drifts between dream and reality, to tell a story from within those deep and often dark places. I find a delicate soft beautiful existence in the solitary shadows that are hidden in our world. Whether they are the secrets that are hidden, forgotten, or abandoned, I like to express these silent tableaus in my mind in my artwork. Hopefully they will touch another soul who views my artwork and take them to a restful place within their subconscious where they may have gone through sentiments of sorrow, hope, loneliness, or euphoria."_Andrea Ng
