Lanta Meng is a contemporary artist living in New Westminster, on the west coast of Canada. She studied Fine Art at the San Francisco Academy of Art College and at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver in the early 80s.
Her paintings are often characterized as a blend between impressionism and realism. Color and shape, light and shadow, smooth and textured brush strokes guide the vibrant oil paints she uses to transfer her inspiration and emotions to canvas.
Lanta finds inspiration in nature, the beauty of the British Columbia West Coast, and the places she visits. Some common recurring themes in her paintings are trees, mountains, rivers and lakes.
Lanta is represented by the Van Dop Gallery in New Westminster. Her paintings have been exhibited at the Amelia Douglas Gallery, Petley Jones Gallery, the New Westminster Cultural Crawl, and Arts Council of New Westminster. Her paintings are widely collected in Canada and abroad.
