East Coastopia Card | Will Cooper
Will Cooper was born in England in 1979. He has lived and worked in many countries, but has spent most of his life on Canada’s East Coast. In 2013, he experimented melding his love for drawing and painting with his love for woodwork to develop the wooden mosaics for which he has become known. His technique involves cutting out designs from sheets of plywood, then meticulously sanding, painting, varnishing and gluing the pieces back together. The result—a whimsical and quintessentially Maritime style of art with vibrant colours and strong, curving lines—can be found brightening walls in homes and businesses from Halifax to Abu Dhabi.
Will is a member of Visual Arts Nova Scotia, Craft Nova Scotia and the Lunenburg Art Gallery Society. He lives with his wife and three children in the Lower Canard, Nova Scotia.
