Artist-at-Work: Candy Art with Rena Wei

1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Central Library

Candy Art is the traditional Chinese form of folk art using hot ,liquid sugar to create two dimensional figures.

The artist create designs by pouring hot syrup from a spoon instead of a paintbrush to form the different figures. After modelling is finished, stick it on a bamboo stick. 

This snack is popular among children.

The ancient skill dates from the Ming Dynasty(14 century). According to the examination, in the book of JIAN KUA BU JI,  people made sacrifices by pouring sugar syrup in the form of animals and people.

In the Qing Dynasty, candy art became more popular, with increasingly sophisticated production techniques and more extensive themes. Most of them were auspicious patterns popular with the general public, such as fish and monkey, zodiac.

Rena Wei immigrated to Canada from China in 2009. She loves China and Canada and wants to make her traditional culture part of Canada’s multiculturalism. Rena lives in Waterloo, Ontario with her husband and two children.

Now in his 80s, he's facing foreclosure of his business. When he's offered a job that just requires some driving, Earl jumps at the chance, but what he doesn't know at first is that he'll be transporting drugs for a Mexican cartel. 

He does so well that he's asked to do more and more runs, with increased loads of cargo. But he eventually attracts the attention of a DEA agent named Colin Bates (Bradley Cooper). As Earl struggles with his past mistakes, and the law and the cartel's enforcers begin to catch up to him, he wonders if he’ll have time to right those wrongs.
