Sunny Choi has a gallery in the heart of up-and-coming hipsterian culture, located in Toronto (Canada, that is) over at Queen and Ossington. Walking by her gallery late and tipsy one good ol’ Monday night, I was struck then swooned by the texture and style of her brush strokes. Yeah, sure. She does recreations of some movie stars, and her paintings are all of pretty girls, but the darned brush strokes, folks! [ Continue Reading ]

Stumbled upon Sean Pinchin while checking out some live music in down town Toronto. His music beguiled me, whether or not it’s due to my unfamiliarity with Blues/Roots music, who knows, but he has a incredibly interesting sound. [ Continue Reading ]

h11 421x400 “High Class Rock And Roll”  The Cunninghams

The music industry is one of the hardest to break into, and perseverance is a major ingredient for success in the magical world of those who make it. Aside from great music, charisma, and lots of talent, you need a certain something to set you aside from the rest, and Toronto’s indie rock band The Cunnignhams certainly got that je ne sais quoi about them that will take them far.

There are more than a million beautiful photographs on this planet, but only a few can take you to a different world for a moment. I find Chris Gordaneer’s pictures fascinating, having the ability to tell wonderful stories through them.

When I first saw Alison Picard‘s work pop up as profile pictures on facebook, I was intrigued. It was when I saw her work as the cover of the upcoming issue of the Toronto-based queer publication NOMOREPOTLUCKS.ORG that I realized that Alison’s work is bloody (actually!) & real.

I first heard of mixed-media artist Kent Monkman when visiting the Art Gallery of Ontario this summer, and was totally blown away. Kent Monkman, a Toronto-based artist of Cree ancestry, uses paint, performance, and video/film to challenge text book notions of Canadian history. His most well-known character and alter-ego, Miss Chief Eagle Testikle, has been spotted all over Canada, studying the European Male and taking very close notes.
