Apollo, Mixed Media, 3' x 4', 2014
An amalgamation of everything I've ever done in a work of art. The most confident I've been with a piece in a long while.
New processes, and works to come. Stay tuned!

Nothing but inspiration from this point on.

Much love to you all.

I will be a part of a group show next week titled, Momentum. It is a reunion show with some of the people I shared a studio space with during my final year at OCAD U. 

Here is a link to the facebook event:

The opening reception is on Thursday September 19, 2013 from 7pm - 11pm at Project Gallery

The show will run from the 19th - 25th of September. 

Hope you can make it out. :) 

New work

This series embodies the timeless and majestic elegance of the human figure in light of the fragility of the human condition. Using translucency, delicate paper, sinuous lines and muted colours, these human forms explore the cohesive yet dynamic relationships between two individuals.

I'm still very much into the theme of Fragility (clearly). I also enjoy negating the figures face in my compositions, so as not to personalize the piece to the subject.

On a side note: There's nothing more that I love than drawing androgynous figures.

Unfortunately I won't be able to make it, but I know for a fact it will be a great time, with great music, great art, and great people!

It has been a while since I last posted anything. Here's a brief insight into what I've been up to.

This past summer I spent a month in Gambo, Ethiopia teaching English and Art to children. As cliche as it may sound, it definitely was a life changing experience. As I was there to teach, it is crazy how much the children taught me. I am looking forward to help Children of Light, a non-profit organization I went to Ethiopia with, build their art program as well as to spread light, love and education to the community.

A piece I worked on with the kids.

Right after my time in Ethiopia, I spent some time in Europe, where I backpacked around Spain, Paris, Lausanne, Germany and the Netherlands. I was very fortunate to have met some really amazing people during my time. One of the most fulfilling things I learned is to help one another, and whenever I asked if there was anything I could do in return to show my gratitude, a common response I received was to pass it on. :)

Louvre, Paris

I went to many art galleries, including the Louvre in Paris and The Dali Museum in Figueres. I was very excited to experience certain paintings in person as opposed through textbooks and photos like I have for the past 5 years during my time at OCAD U. I was very inspired after having visited many museums and galleries.

Upon arriving back to Canada, I moved back in with my parents up in Vaughan. It was a tough adjustment, but I've learned that it is up to me to create my own environment for me to strive in. I created a little studio space in the basement for the time being. I'm currently working on a few pieces.

My little studio space.
4'x4' piece I'm working on, still very early stages. An extension from my Inception piece I created earlier this year.

A self-portrait in the works.

Before I always begin working on a piece, I work on a couple of smaller pieces to get my gears going. With that said, I always seem to do a self-portrait. It is a great way for me to analyze where I am at this point in time, and pushes me to reflect on the type of art I want to create. I'm very much interested in the psyche, and mental health, and I feel like these self-portraits are great start to larger themes I want to explore. One of them being identity.

On a complete side note,
To help raise money for Children of Light, we will be hosting a party at Creatures Creating on Saturday January 12, 2013. Check out the event page on Facebook:

Please contact me if you're interested in buying tickets. GOODNIGHT AND GLOW! :)

Two Oh Five: The Forgotten

I was recently in a show at the Gladstone Hotel called Two Oh Five: The Forgotten. I want to thank Kelly, Cayla and Yiying, for putting it all together.
The show ran from June 14-June 17. Showcased was the work of fellow  students who shared a studio space in the basement of the building at 205 Richmond St within the past year. I can honestly say that I had such a wonderful time sharing the space with every single one of them.
If you never got a chance to check out the show, here is a review:

A few other artists and I were mentioned to look for and you will notice a photo of my work is featured on the review. It's the 3rd photo down. The one on the right is my most recent piece.
