Keith Levang is our Artist in Residence
Please join us in welcoming Keith as he adds colour and warmth to our lobby for the month of August. You can see Keith and other Victoria Artists throughout downtown Victoria hotels in August as part of Artishow Victoria. The Chateau Victoria is one of five hotels in Victoria participating.
Keith was born and raised in Vancouver, BC and now reside on Vancouver Island where he is fully engaged in the visual arts and painting full time. He exhibits his work mostly on Vancouver Island, Vancouver & Metro Vancouver.
“My representational style of painting allows me to present the subject faithfully while maintaining the feel and look of a painting, rather than a photograph. My approach is to concentrate on the relationship between light & shadow within a strong composition.”
‘I try to capture a specific moment in time, one that recalls a familiar place, memory or feeling. I have spent my life on the Canadian West Coast. The images of the sea, shoreline, mountains and occasionally, boats & buildings, are the ones which inspire me to want to preserve that familiarity on canvas.’
