Star Trek Art Show
Limited Edition to Help The Friends of High Park Zoo

Remember when that Peacock was roaming Roncesvalles here in Toronto, jumping from rooftop to rooftop? After the weekend he spent being followed by every news agency in our lovely city, I was inspired to paint him. The Friends of High Park Zoo, the non-profit organization who helps to fundraise for the capital improvements to the zoo, approached me to see if my painting could perhaps help in their fundraising efforts.  Limited edition prints of “Starry Night Flyer #Roncesvalles” are available now and a portion of the proceeds will go to FHPZ. Prints are high quality giclee, run on art paper 13″ x 13″ (image is “10 x 10″.)

PUNKtures Art Show @ Steam Whistle Brewery!

I am pleased to be participating the PUNKtures Art Show now on at Steam Whistle Brewery!

“PUNKtures is a visual examination of the attitude of punk rock that is the desire for change and a will to challenge the everyday, the love of the underdog, the willingness to think differently. The artists involved, possessing intimate understanding of the Toronto Punk Scene, present the duality inherent in a subculture where opposing sentiments often coexist side by side: neglected meets precious, tender meets harshness. Meaning and truth can be found in what others reject so as to reconstruct it and chew and digest anything of value that may have been lost otherwise.” –Leslie Walters, Curator

Artists include: Anna Lise Walmer (Assemblage), Helen Prancic (Photography/Collage), Henry Martinuk (Photography), Jen Rec (Illustration), Jonathan Culp (A/V screening – Opening night only!), Leanne Davies (Painting), Leslie Walters (Painting/Drawing), Mike Lax (Illustration), NOXIOUS (Assemblage), RUNT (Painting), Shawna T. Heist (Raven) (Painting), Skull Studio (CORPUSSE) (Painting/Drawing).

The show runs until October 30th, 2015 at Steam Whistle Roundhouse, free and open to the public.
