It all Started with a chance meeting
When moving back to Toronto, Dave and I desperately needed some art on our walls since we didn't own anything after traveling non-stop for eight years!
Friends from Toronto told us about a fantastic lab that printed large prints on metal frames called Fotobox on the Queensway.
So we had a couple of our prints enlarged at Fotobox and loved it so much; we went back again.
Lanny Chun started the company in 2008, and his son Phill honed his craft at the family business.
Last month, he opened his studio next door specializing in metal prints.
Opening of Level Fine Art Photography
Phill asked Dave to be his first featured photographer and the idea of a gallery show was born.
April 26 – May 26 Toronto Gallery Show
The timing couldn't have worked out better as Dave, and I decided to slow our travels down a bit in 2019 to focus on other goals.
This is an exciting new project that we hope opens the door to new photography opportunities.
Since getting to know the Chun family, we are thrilled to be working with them and hope to continue for many years to come!
About Level Fine Art Modern Gallery
Started by Phill Chun, Level Fine Art: Modern Gallery is inspired by the likes of Peter Lik and his infamous fine art galleries across the world.
With a passion for photography and experience within the printing industry at his father's acclaimed Fotobox, Chun's prints stand heads above the average canvas framed prints of traditional photography exhibits.
This gallery showing of limited prints will run from April 26, 2019, to May 26, 2019.
A second event will be held for the closing week on May 24, so keep the date open if you can't make April.

We hope you can join us on April 26, but if you can't save the date in May! We'll be doing it all over again the weekend before the exhibit closes on May 24.
