As the founder of Himapan Canada, Robert Gaudet's goal is to immerse visitors in a world of traditional East Asian art. The gallery’s signature pieces are its lotus-leaf paintings. Made from Thai pressed lotus leaves preserved on canvas, the striking works are painted in a variety of rich hues. Guests can even create their own elegant artwork during Himapan's wine-and-canvas events, wherein a resident artist teaches students a host of lotus-leaf painting techniques. Guests can peruse the selection of art for sale, including lacquer wall art and Chinese furniture hailing from as far back as the 18th century.
