About the speaker
Get your monthly dose of inspiration and join us for this month’s CreativeMornings Ottawa talk with Ottawa-based digital artist Eric Chan a.k.a eepmon!
During this free breakfast series talk we’ll explore this month’s theme MAGIC. Whether it’s the magic of a workplace, a show, performance, or one of those moments with great customer support, it awakens our senses and makes us pay attention to the world, encouraging us to appreciate details that are elusive in everyday life.
Eepmon saw how the Internet transformed world industries, with art as no exception, and with this he was inspired to become an artist of the Digital Age. “Technology provides a new area for innovators and artists to experiment and develop new modes of creative expression.” He sees the computer as an artistic tool, just like the paintbrush, and with a desire only a truly passionate artist could have, set out to generate dense, dynamic and beautiful digital graphic compositions that attracted clients like Marvel, Canada Goose, Microsoft Xbox, and more.
Currently eepmon is a Digital Artist in Residence at the Algonquin College Applied Research and Innovation Centre.
This theme was chosen by our Porto chapter and illustrated by Marta Madureira. Ours is a community that invites magical experiences and ideas with open arms, and together in 150+ cities, we will explore the topic of #CMmagic with glittering eyes.
