About the Artist
Born in Inner Mongolia in 1968, Geemon immigrated to Toronto, Canada as a distinguished artist in 2004. He has exhibited his works in Canada, the United States, United Kingdom and China, among other countries. Geemon became a member of the Sculptors Society of Canada in 2006 and founded the Vancouver Sculpture Studio in Vancouver in 2012. Geemon taught sculpture for 6 years to more than 100 students from more than 10 countries. He became an elected member of the National Sculpture Society (USA) in 2018. That same year, he began construction on a 10 year long project to build an international sculpture program and sculpture garden in Washington State, USA. Geemon is currently working on a group of 40 life sized figures in a sculpture titled "Moment". He currently resides in Vancouver, Canada.
I stand alone: artists are dying out, replaced by the consumeristic "creative entrepreneur" of the modern world. But I am not in despair, I have not lost my direction nor my ideals.
I am currently working on my sculpture series "The Moment", and I hope to build a sculpture garden, creating a world of art.
