Based out of Waterloo, Ontario, Khanh Be is an artist working with the medium of graphite on paper with a passion for people and their stories. From the story of your wedding day to the story of your every day, Khanh is waiting with paper and pencil, ready to drawattention to you…
drawattention combines pencil and your personal photography to create framed custom graphite art. Commissioned work is fit to your exact specifications and rendered from the photos in your life.
All request for commissioned work will be accepted while Khanh is based out of Ottawa, Ontario. Orders made from elsewhere will still be received, and a suitable deliver method will be determined at a later date. It is recommended to send requests for quotes 2 months ahead of the intended gifting/receiving date, though rush orders can be accommodated.

June 2012 - #Kingradgift
As a Legacy Gift on behalf of the McMaster Graduating Kinesiology Class of 2012, Khanh created a 6-foot long mural depicting six graduates in their generic black robes. Their story, as well as that of the graduting class', comes through in the X-Ray vision provided by the letters and numbers of 'MACKIN 2012'.
The full explanation for the vision behind this mural can be seen below:
In another recent project, the artistry of Khanh and drawattention were showcased in a McMaster University Alumni Association video which aimed to thank its 10, 000 donors for their continued philanthropy.
