Van den Eijnden, Trevor
About the artistTrevor Van den Eijnden is a visual artist, writer and educator born and in Nova Scotia and currently living in Vancouver, British Columbia. He received two simultaneous undergraduate degrees from two institutions in 2005—a Bachelor of Arts from Dalhousie University and a Bachelor of Fine Art from NSCAD University. In 2015 he completed a Masters of Applied Art (Visual Arts) from Emily Carr University of Art + Design. Having a lifelong interest in education he is currently the Program Head for the Visual Arts Department at the Visual College of Art and Design Vancouver. He teaches courses in photography, conceptualization, history, and intermedia design where he focuses on inclusion, empathy, activism and ecological ethics. Raised near a coast frequented by hurricanes and sharp shifts in the weather, he developed early a desire for understanding how we understand nature. His childhood home was surrounded by rivers and marshland that had been studiously crafted by beavers. In emulation of these structures, his first artwork was a series of earthen dams built in autumn, that in spring caused a sizable ice dam that flooded a dozen acres of land, and his neighbour’s basement. He was fourteen. Please contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org for further inquiries.
I explore, probe, pattern, and contemplate futility and purpose in the Anthropocene. Through this, I make soothes for dark subject matter.
