Haren Vakil in attendance.
Elizabeth Ely, harpist; Karel Roessingh, pianist

Haren Vakil was born in Mumbai, India, and holds a degree in Architecture as well as a post graduate diploma from the Victoria College of Art, Victoria, BC Canada. Haren worked as an architect and urban designer in India and the Netherlands. In 1973, he came to Canada to pursue graduate studies at the University of British Columbia. Since then he has worked as an urban designer with various Vancouver and Victoria firms. He now lives in Victoria and works as a painter, illustrator and designer. He has exhibited his work in several juried and group shows in local galleries and has had solo exhibitions in Victoria, B.C., and Mumbai, India. A number of his works are in private collections in Canada, the United States, Europe and India.
There is no specific rationale or consciousness behind my work. Nor is there any particular relationship. I juxtapose various figures and creatures, objects and icons within a certain framework to arrive at a compositional whole. I am not suggesting or conveying any message. I am not suggesting or conveying any particular message or narrative. Viewers may read and interpret my work as they perceive it.
My work is rooted in the surreal and the fantastic. It is influenced by my background in architecture, my interest in music, especially jazz and my experience of various cultures, east and west. My intent is to produce images which evoke wonder, surprise and amusement.
