About the Work
Owen repurposed existing iconic imagery of bravery, personal sacrifice, loss, unity and victory, changing and adding elements to depoliticize and refocus to honour frontline construction workers as they strive on our behalf for health and peace in the 2020 pandemic.
Owen is a Windsor, Ontario, traditional media and digital illustrator and painter, and the illustrator-author of #tourdesketch Windsor. He works on-location and in-studio on a wide subject range. Owen receives private and commercial commissions, specializing in residential and people portraiture. He is rarely without a sketchbook. Find him on Facebook, Instagram and owenswain.com.
