Nighthawk Vineyards is very proud to feature the inspiring artwork of renowned Okanagan artist Alex Fong on all of our labels. Alex is a good friend and has truly captured the majestic view from our vineyard…bringing our local Nighthawks to the forefront. Alex Fong has a personal style that has since become his hallmark. His translucent, impressionistic paintings are distinguished by a parade of coloured flecks that he calls ‘confetti’, to represent his celebration of life. The result is an exquisite balance of spontaneity and grace. Alex Fong’s work has attracted the attention of fine art collectors since the early days when he exhibited at Vancouver galleries, through his years as a touring member of the Western Lights Artist’s Group. Alex was a recipient of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal in 2003, recognizing his dedicated community service. Alex Fong’s artistic vision continues to evolve, his work reflecting a delightfully fresh and youthful outlook. “A child views the world with optimism and wonder. That is what I hope to accomplish with my art. Each day, I look forward to creating something new and wonderful,” he says. “I paint to make people feel good, and to put a little joy into their lives. Joy, splendour and whimsy, sprinkled with a few unusual surprises…Welcome to Fong’s World.”
