    This is a unique sculpture done in a limited series of sizes and varying types of granite

    Khang Pham was born in war-torn South Vietnam in 1968, the year of the Têt offensive. At the age of 12, together with two of his uncles he joined the exodus of “boat people” in search of a new life. Arriving in a refugee camp in Malaysia, he was separated from his uncles, ultimately to be adopted by an Australian family living in Canada. John New, a professor of European history, his wife Debbie, and their family of eight children (including Khang) were strongly supportive of Khang’s love of art. As early as high school, Khang’s artistic talents started to flourish. With the support of Barry McCarthy, his high school art teacher, (now an acclaimed Canadian painter), an art project revealed to Khang that the medium of sculpture could help him express himself both emotionally and artistically. Khang Pham-New studied at the Ontario College of Art where he majored in sculpture installation. Amongst other venues, Khang has exhibited throughout Toronto at the John B. Aird Gallery, the Queens Quay II Gallery, The Sculptor’s Society of Canada, and at the Pinedale Estates, a private sculpture garden north of Toronto. In 2005, three of Khang’s works were selected to exhibit in the prestigious Vancouver Sculpture Biennale. After almost 20 years, in October 1999, Khang travelled back to Vietnam to be reunited with his birth parents. In his continuing voyage of self-discovery, he began a process of reconnecting with his birth country and culture.
