Faculty: Geordie Lishman
Geordie Lishman graduated the Vancouver Film School with a degree in Computer Animation. Painting is also part of his artistic development, but metal has become his passion and practice. Geordie worked together with his father, William Lishman, creating several metal works; notably the Max Tanenbaum Sculpture Garden at Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto, the Tolton Bear Dog for the 1999 Royal Winter Fair, a permanent sculpture for the Halifax Environmental Centre, and a fountain for the Ajax Municipal Building. By 2005, he had established his metalworking studio and launched his career as a metal sculptor. Geordie has been commissioned to create pieces as small as a tabletop ornament and as large as a life-sized `Transformer', constructed of full-sized cars.
