Artist Statement

In “Whispers of the Wild,” I aimed to capture Squamish’s untamed beauty through a tapestry of wildlife and landscapes that unfold across the mural. Drawing inspiration from the rugged mountains, dense forests, and flowing rivers that define this region, the mural invites viewers to embark on a visual journey through the natural wonders that surround us. If you look closer, you will discover hidden animals blended into the shapes and forms in the mural. These subtle creatures serve as a reminder that all living things are interconnected, and we need to protect the delicate balance of the ecosystem. Through this mural, I hope to inspire both locals and visitors alike to cherish and protect the natural wonders that make Squamish special.”

Annie Chen, based in Vancouver and Squamish, is the creative force behind LEMONNI, an art and design studio established in 2013. With a vision to infuse happiness into homes through patterns and colors, Annie’s designs feature crisp lines and soft retro palettes, evoking a whimsical and playful vibe reminiscent of the 60s. Inspired by nature and her love for animals, her work reflects her alter ego, blending Eastern and Western influences from her Taiwanese roots and Canadian upbringing.
