Meet the Artists
Elicser Elliott is a Canadian visual artist who has been making his mark in building Toronto’s street art scene. Since graduating from Sheridan College’s animation program, he has amassed a vast collection ofmurals and public artworks around the city.
He describes his work as highly improvised collages of soft characters and organic shapes, layered and blended through transparencies. Inspirations for his characters often stem from his own past relationships and experiences. Coupled with drawing likenesses from passersby on the street, he combines the two to bring his community-based murals to life.
Apart from his renowned murals seen widely across the streets of Toronto, Elliott has also illustrated and produced a small run of books titled Know Love. He has previously exhibited at the Art Gallery ofOntario, The Royal Ontario Museum and LE Gallery. He was also an arts educator with the AGO’s “Free After Three” youth arts program and the Toronto Jazz Festival, teaching youth aerosol paint techniques.
Claire Browne is an emerging artist living and working in the Toronto area. She graduated from OCAD University in 2015 with a Bachelor of Fine Art degree specializing in drawing and painting.
Her art practice focuses on the themes of self-identity and heritage. She is particularly interested in landscape and the deep connection that people have between land and self-identity.
Her own family’s stories consist of travel, displacement and adapting to new lands and cultural spaces. Through painting the Caribbean country St. Vincent and the Grenadines, where her paternal family originates, Claire attempts to navigate the cultural spaces and stories of her childhood allowing for new narratives to appear.
