Bhat Boy's Paintings at Sunnyside Branch

"Forsaken" by Bhat Boy

Sunnyside Branch is proud as a peacock to have several more of Bhat Boy’s paintings on display. Sunnyside received his painting, “Jolly Old Ottawa South” which hangs behind the Information Desk, as a gift from the Friends of the Ottawa Public Library after the branch renovations in 2010. But in addition, Bhat Boy has loaned us several more recent landscapes. Bhat Boy’s unique style is “representational but imaginative.” As a local artist, Bhat Boy can be frequently spotted in the neighbourhood and is very supportive of our library. Please stop by and admire the art!
