Raymond Chow

Raymond Chow

Raymond Chow Profile PictureRaymond Chow is an internationally renowned artist based in Vancouver, Canada.  He won his early recognition in his teenage years when many art dealers would come knocking on his parent’s door with cash in hand, eager to buy a Raymond Chow drawing.

In the mid-1950’s, Raymond began his art career drawing black ink drawings of Vancouver’s buildings. His drawings sold for around $50 in the 1950’s, artwork created by his favorite 25 cent ball point pen.

Throughout his career, Raymond has met many public figureheads who have commissioned him for paintings.  Some have included Clint Eastwood, Sunny and Cher, and Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia.

Other collector’s of Raymond Chow’s paintings have included Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, Paul Anka, Raymond Burr, Gordon Lightfoot, and David Lam.  His works are in the collections of Touche Ross, Scott Paper, the Variety Club, and MacMillan Bloedel, to name a few.

Raymond Chow has also exhibited with some of the most prominent contemporary artists in the world including AJ Casson, Andrew Wyeth, and many more.  He has a lengthy art career of over 50 years where his artwork has gone from art galleries across Canada to as far as the Royal Palace of India in Rajasthan.  Now, he enjoys his time traveling around British Columbia and supporting the Arts in Vancouver.
