Art and Design EventsIdeasInspiration

Today we’re pleased to welcome the founder of COOL OBJECTS, Rosa Wan, to share some of her favourite works.

Rosa Wan is a Toronto-based, Hong-Kong-raised sketch artist and visual stylist who enjoys bringing what’s around her to life through vibrant colours and textural lines. Her creative direction centres around spotlighting the beauty of everyday objects and people. Through her drawings, she reconstructs her surroundings using bright colours palettes to express new narratives through her own creative process. Rosa’s love for observational drawing and spotlighting people and things in her surroundings lead her into building her own creative community. 

Cool Objects is a Toronto art community that fosters meaningful interactions through creative exercises and local artistry. They curate events that specialize in using creative expressionism as a tool to uplift individuals, while committing to use their community wealth to contribute to social change.
