Verdens Lys is founded in 2016  by professional artist Tianjie (Jen)Yang who is graduated from NSCAD University.

In Verdens Lys, we focus on mural painting, art commissions service and handmade crafts. Our mission is to offer services to those who like to explore creative ideas, to use art to intersperse their environment and so on. It is our passion to help you with art to pursue these goals.

Such things are never superficial or careless. As Susan Sontag has said,

“Do stuff. be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration's shove or society's kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It's all about paying attention. attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. stay eager.” 

Therefore, we will give you the best answer at Verdens lys. 

In 2019, Verdens Lys has moved from Halifax to Antigonish Area. Apologize for people who at HRM area that are looking for Mural painting service, Verdens Lys is no longer take orders. But welcome people who lives at Antigonish Area!

Artist Statement

Although life can bring stress, chaos, and confusion, I always try to find a way to be positive and to be myself. Few life experiences can satisfy me as much as painting. It is a form of creative practice that uses color and style to express many meanings. I like to use bright colors and high contrast in abstract and representational paintings that combine figures and cityscapes. I work in a range of sizes. 
A key aspect of my artwork is conflicting and comparison. I combining Chinese culture with postmodern and futuristic art styles. I like to keep finding the conflicting and comparisons in opposites. I think everything is exist in comparisons. It just like you won’t know how good it is if there is no bad thing to compare with. Naturally, my time in Canada also had a heavy influence on my work as an artist.  I am experienced in using oil, acrylics, charcoal drawing, watercolor, tablet digital drawing and printmaking
