Kim La Fave

Kim La Fave is a Canadian born artist / illustrator. After graduating from ACAD (Alberta College of Art and Design) in 1976 and summer studies in New York, Kim moved to Toronto and established a career as an internationally published illustrator. Returning to the West Coast in 1992, Kim now lives and works from his studio on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia and is profoundly inspired by the natural beauty of his surroundings.

Kim is moved to understand the world through ideas and conversations in drawing and painting, capturing and abstracting key moments in time, landscapes and themes via dynamic, gestural imagery. Constantly evolving his vision and expression, Kim’s artistic process is one of discovery, reflection, deconstruction and re-assembly. By questioning each subject, through investigations in material, texture, line and colour, he distills essential meaning, value and power. The end result is at once grounded and complete, evocative and expansive.
