    Interview with Aadila Munshi

    Interview with Aadila Munshi

    Aadila Munshi is a contemporary artist living and working in Toronto, Canada. She is known for her paintings of distressed urban surfaces. In her work, grit and decay are uniquely juxtaposed with elegant marks and her signature calligraffiti forms. Her paintings are meaningful, emotive, and ultimately inspired by the human condition.
    A former Criminologist at the University of Cape Town, Aadila grew up in South Africa during the apartheid regime and paints from a deep sense of repressed voice. Composed intuitively, her abstract expressions emerge as visual representations of her perception of the push and pull between struggle, hope and the ability to rise above. She studied painting with a professional artist and has been painting for over 25 years. In 2000, she moved to Toronto permanently, where she studied at the Toronto School of Art and established her painting practice. Her work has been sold in North America, Australia, U.K. and South Africa.

    Interview with Boyd Waites

    Interview with Boyd Waites

    Canadian artist Boyd Waites has always been most interested in our natural surroundings and people, as well as people’s impact on the landscape. He is not interested in faithfully depicting a particular place, his work could be categorized broadly as Abstract Expressive Landscape. Boyd keeps inside emotions and feelings about places and my own experiences or inner reactions and their memories. He is always seeking to elevate and uplift through his paintings, to elevate the viewers perceptions, feeling or mood and sense of place.

    Interview with Alyson Borycki

    Interview with Alyson Borycki

    Alyson Borycki is a contemporary abstract artist based in Toronto, Canada. Her work tells stories of empowerment, healing, growth, and self-acceptance. "Using bold and playful gestures and colours, I feel my way through my work, infusing both raw emotion and energy with softness and tranquility. I create my paintings by adding layer upon layer of colour as the story unfolds.  Every piece is a reflection of myself at any given time, but I love the idea of viewers seeing themselves reflected in the work and connecting their own experiences and interpretations to the work. In this way, the story I tell continues to evolve after it leaves my hands."

    Interview with Samantha Williams-Chapelsky

    Interview with Samantha Williams-Chapelsky

    Work by Canadian abstract landscape artist Samantha Williams-Chapelsky interprets landscape with color, gestures, and texture using acrylic paints to capture patterns of meaning and historical significance. She investigates the parallels between grassland crops to textile patterns, conversational meaning and emotion within a skyline, and spirituality within a landscape.
    “My work primarily focuses on the depiction the landscape of Canada and specifically that of Western Canada is in a constant state of change. From weather to the effect of human presence to the pastoral landscape, idyllic in the minds of prairie dwellers, there are never ending conversations of patterns, lights, and landscape horizons. I aims to capture the relationship between the sky and ground. This stark divisional line suggests a disconnect and yet neither sky nor ground would exist without the other.”

Awesome!

It is fabulous to hear inside knowledge from Liza and her artists! I am an artist who has focussed more on art instruction than the business side of art. Each episode has a nugget or two of information that I can use to improve my art business. Thanks Liza!
