“Paper Cuts” by Artist Winnie Truong

Truong8

New work by our friend Toronto-based artist, Winnie Truong, who we’ve featured many times before (click here for previous posts). “Paper Cuts” was created during her Doris McCarthy artist residency at Fools Paradise this past Winter. Really cool to see her work moving in a new direction introducing the layers of cut paper.

See more images below or, if you happen to be in Toronto, on display at ESP (Erin Stump Projects) 1558 Dupont St. until April 23rd!

Community Colour Mural by Artist Luke Ramsey

Ramsey1

Our friend Luke Ramsey’s latest mural is part of the Create Community Colour Mural Program, a project that aims to beautify 6 graffiti hotspots around Victoria, British Columbia as well as provide mentorship between established artists and the city’s youth.

With the help of aspiring artists Jocelyn Zhao and Sarah Jim, Luke created a piece that isn’t just about painting over things we deem ugly and imposing our ideas of what is beautiful. The finished product not only incorporates pre-existing tags but actually includes “invited taggers” — artists Shawn O’Keefe and Erik Volet — challenging graffiti’s tradition of tagging and territory by offering a different kind of representation and space for inclusion.
