James Agesen, a London O4ntario Canadian artist, has announced an exciting crowdfunding campaign to support the launch of his first art book, Road to Recovery. The highly anticipated art book is expected to feature 100-150 pages of watercolor art, each with an accompanying short essay.
An exciting collection of original works, Road to Recovery will feature abstract watercolors on canvas that reflect Agensen’s past experiences and personal turmoil as a military veteran. His raw, vivid, and captivating art will come to life in the book and honor the mental health struggles of veterans and first responders like himself who proudly served their country, yet continue to live each day battling the physical and emotional tolls that often accompany a life of selfless service. The paintings additionally draw on Agensen’s work and conversations with veterans through the Veterans Art Initiative, an art and community service foundation he founded while on his own journey to overcome post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and the costly mental health effects of serving in today’s military environment.
The art book promises to captivate readers and feature Agensen’s highly praised creative talents. A promising Canadian artist, Agensen’s work has been published in art magazines and museums, including the London Bridge Boomer Gallery in London, England, and the Gallea Art Gallery in Montreal, Canada, though this will be his first published art book with essays.
