Artist Bio:
Born in Indonesia, Imam Azhari has lived in Toronto since 2004. He grew up in an artistic family who encouraged Imam to follow his passion in the visual arts. He continues to develop his skills and is a graduate of the Academy of Realist Art Toronto .

Calling himself a “Metamorphosis Artist”, Imam Azhari uses the refined and traditional technique of Trompe L’oeil to create spectacular contemporary artworks. His ideas are drawn upon rich and thoughtful personal experiences, such as his journey to Canada or the simple view from his balcony, combined with a historical viewpoint, symbolism and perspectival illusionism. A change (or Metamorphosis) takes hold as the viewer is drawn into his work and soon discovers a stronger and deeper truth that is revealed in all of his oil paintings and drawings.
