Synn Kune Loh is a visual artist, a painter, a poet ad a song writer. 

He is the author of a book of poetry titled “A Journey to Camatkara,”

He received a BA in psychology from the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut, U.S.A.

While studying for his MA in Cultural Psychology at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario,

he took a trip to Paris and discovered his passion to make art. He went to the Ontario College of Art

and began a career as an exhibiting artist. His early paintings were abstract landscapes, followed by themes that stem from a metaphysical content. 

His poetry has an unique expression that is both touching and inspiring. Diagnosed with early Parkinson’s Disease, he used Ping Pong as a healing 

agent, and wrote a book titled “Ping Pong, Parkinson’s, and the Art of Staying in the Game.” The book has been by Silver Bow Press in January, 2018 and will be launched at the Lipoint Centre in Richmond , BC. January 13th from 2-4 pm along with an exhibition of his retrospective art exhibit. Free, all are welcome to attend!

Poem 

Speaking is just making noise.

Talking is too much about facts.

 

Conversation is connection.

Real conversation is silence.,

a heart to heart communication.

 

Contemplation is mind expansion,

an underrated pleasure.

beyond the physical dimension.

 

Meditation is soul revelation.

 

Surviving samsara is our journey.

Remembering nirvana is our destination.

 

Poetry is a new leaf 

emerging from the old self.

 

Let each talk to each other then,

with poetry,

the real conversation.
