Levi van Veluw – Artist

Levi van Veluw is a very accomplished multidisciplinary artist from the Netherlands. His CV covers a multitude of installations, solo and group shows from 2006 to present day.

What first caught my eye was his very simple charcoal drawings which are quite large. I can’t imagine how long it took, as well as how many pieces of charcoal, one ...

R.S. Connett – Painter

Born in San Francisco, but now living in Los Angeles, R.S. Connett only began his full-time art career when he was 52.

Although he was drawing from the ripe age of 3, he owned an insurance brokerage firm during his adult life and painted on his own time.

I could spend tons of time looking at his work due to it’s detail. ...

Skount – everything artist

Born in Almagro, Spain and currently working out of Amsterdam, street artist Skount has showcased his incredible work on walls around the world. Sometimes he collaborates with other street artists during festivals etc. but his work stands out as a brand more than anyone else’s. Whimsical beings intertwined with a masquerade theme sets his work apart. I’m in awe of this type ...

Filthy Luker – Installation artist

Filthy Luker (a.k.a. Luke Egan) is an urban installation artist who brings buildings, trees, street bins and discarded furniture to life with a sense of humour. Definitely quirky but with clever wit.

My favourite is his google eyes implanted into trees. Would make me slightly uncomfortable walking by one or noticing it in the distance. However, it makes a point and ...

Tadao was an architect in Lithuania who decided to switch interests in 2010 and become a photographer. And what an incredible job he’s done so far. His latest work titled “Blow Job”, is hilarious indeed. A must see, especially the video!!!

To give you a snippet, he has photographed portraits of people enduring gale-force winds directly to the ...

Christian Rex van Minnen – Painter

Christian could have been the inspiration behind Lady Gaga’s meat dress once you take a look at the body of his work. I don’t think I would ask him to paint my portrait though! Another painter who executes his material with exceptional quality and detail but who’s subject matter is kinda yucky. But if you’re a ...

Casey Weldon – Painter

Casey is a New York artist who originated from southern California. I came across his work from a posting on Facebook by my fave mag, Hi-Fructose. This magazine always introduces me to the most intriguing artists. Anyway, Casey has talent no doubt in painting as well as illustration and his subject matter is cheeky yet invokes a dialogue. He doesn’t ...

Michael O – Digital Artist

Michael O (aka Michael Oswald) is a California based digital artist and retoucher. Can’t remember how I came across his work but it may have been from a Photoshop User magazine. His imagery begins with a photo which he then paints over and manipulates until the final effect is reached. Many, many hours pass during this process but the end ...

Minjae Lee – Mixed Media Artist

Minjae was an accidental find through my workplace. While viewing an iPad magazine, Minjae’s work was displayed along with a video of him producing this wonderful piece. I was in total awe because he uses markers. A particular kind of refillable marker that could be blended similar to watercolours. Copic Markers are the medium and now I’m on the hunt ...

Gosia – Illustrator, Painter, Sculptor

Once again, another great find who was exhibiting at The Artist Project this past March. Gosia is a local Toronto artist. Although she is quite young, she has incredible talent and is off to a great start in her career. According to her Facebook page, her age is 13, however, I think it’s a typo!

Anyway, her work is beautiful and has a ...

Ross Bonfanti – Sculptor and Painter

Ross is a Canadian born artist residing in Toronto. His sculptures mainly consist of baby heads adhered to a panel then painted. He was another artist I found intriguing at the last The Artist Project event. Cute heads depicting an expression based on the rest of the painting.

He doesn’t seem to have a dedicated website yet but his work is on display ...

John Ovcacik – Painter

John is another find from The Artist Project. He studied to be an architect but now uses those skills painting these beautifully simplistic landscapes. If you have ever tried to paint, you would appreciate the patience required to work your paint over and over to produce such smooth, flat colour. The main visual aspect of his work is his amazingly keen eye ...
