Alumni Success Stories
Deadhead is a large-scale sculptural installation mounted to a barge and towed by tug to different locations along Vancouver’s waterways. Created by alumnus Cedric Bomford ('03), in collaboration with his father Jim Bomford (retired engineer), and brother Nathan Bomford (artist/builder), the sculpture is constructed primarily from salvaged materials, with some sections wrapped in photographic murals.

Challenging traditional conventions in painting has established Colleen Heslin as an emerging leader in contemporary Canadian art. Known for her innovative textile-based methods, Heslin develops textures with ink and dye on second-hand fabrics, which upon inspection reveal themselves as collage-based, process-formed trompe l’oeil.
A 2003 graduate of Emily Carr, Heslin won the 2013 RBC Canadian Painting Competition.
