Strength & Remembrance Pole Raising

Artwork inspired by the Strength & Remembrance Pole in North Vancouver.

With my painting, I want to convey to the audience that humans are vastly different from one another and their differences can support the overall progress of human society. However, the pillar of this progress is based on equal behavior of people with each other, and having acceptance and respect toward diversity.
