  • TYPE competition & Art Battle #228: I’m in!

    I decided to embrace as many opportunities as I can, that are being offered by The Artist Project (I’m at BOOTH #123), which I am going to be in, Feb. 19 to 22nd, 2015, in Toronto. As such, I have entered myself into their TYPE competition, as well as Art Battle #228!

    As for the Art Battle, it will be my first! 20 minutes to complete a painting, along with 15 other selected artists. I’m excited to have this opportunity, though a bit nervous about being able to produce quality work, so quickly, and in front of a crowd! If you are in the area, please come and cheer me on!


    Art Battle date: Friday, February 20, 2015
    Time: 6–8pm
    Venue: Better Living Centre, Exhibition Place, Toronto, ON
    Tickets: $15 (included in Artist Project admission)


    For those who are interested, there are a number entertaining activities planned around The Artist Project:


    Early Access Preview
    Opening night party
    Art Battle (yes, I’m going to be in it!).
    Art chats seminar series (great speakers lined up!)
    Art walks guided tours (about 20 mins. each)


    Please stop by my booth and say hi, if you’re in the area!
