Confluent Studios is based in the diverse metropolitan city of Vancouver, Canada.
The city’s vibrancy, which sits within a natural abundance, is what informs our work.
Inspiration is collected from the everyday,
allowing us to ruminate and indulge in this endless exhibit.
We engage ourselves within a creative experience that
blurs the definition between traditional and contemporary.
Our artists have been gilding, carving, etching and
painting together for over a decade.
We specialize in art on glass, lacquer, canvas
and other beautiful, under-explored surfaces.
We merge diverse materials and surfaces
to create unique and evocative finishes for bespoke spaces.
