Pub­lic art spa­ces and com­mer­cial art gal­leries

Some­where, over the rain­bow, Kristofer Dean finds in­spi­ra­tion for his Cray­ola-coloured works—or at least that’s what we as­sume. The Cana­dian artist’s pris­matic acrylic-and-resin paint­ings have adorned gallery walls and cov­ered the sides of build­ings. But re­gard­less of size, his pieces al­ways have an el­e­ment of play, us­ing light, shadow and per­spec­tive to add (or fake) di­men­sion. To see vi­brant works like “Re­fracted Air­flow” (pic­tured), don’t bother chas­ing rain­bows. In­stead, visit Ian Tan Gallery for Yes, It’s the Mu­ral (Dec. 8 to Jan. 31; page 32).
