I want to use this space to acknowledge the senseless murder of George Floyd and stand with everyone demanding justice, and peacefully protesting police brutality and systemic racism. We're putting everything on pause for the day. I realise this action alone will not bring about any substantial change so if you have any ideas about how best to use this platform to be an ally during this time, please email me directly: [email protected]

You can seek justice for George Floyd by signing any of these petitions:

We Can't Breathe

Artist Spotlight: Mitchell Villa

Vibrant paintings by artist Mitchell Villa, currently based in Victoria, British Columbia. More interested in capturing the raw energy of life rather than its exact likeness, Villa’s bold brushstrokes and distorted figures extend beyond the confines of their canvases. For Villa it’s all about capturing the inner lives of his subjects as well as himself. Allowing elements of his own life to inform the direction of his work, Villa challenges the norms of two dimensional composition, often reflecting time as a sequence rather than a singular moment.
