The Milanese duo behind Carnovsky joined us in Toronto for our opening of their exhibit, RGB: A Voyage. This video showcases some of their time spent in Toronto with the Nuvango family and shares some insights into their processes and inspiration.
We spent the day watching Alex laugh, paint, snap the odd selfie and talk about his DIY approach to life. His unlikely career in art seems to be the byproduct of a series of experiments and failures gone right. He earns a living from his art but it also helps him cope with the tumultuous times in his life. He faces his demons by throwing them at the canvas and twisting them into bizarre and hilarious comments on pop culture. It’s cathartic for him and disturbing yet oddly comforting for the rest of us.
We hung out with Dave Murray for an afternoon to find out what makes him go. Turns out his unhealthy obsession with bicycles and a penchant for lathed bits of wood makes up a large part of that. Who knew?? His body of work is full of whimsy and physical impossibility along with a healthy sense of humour, but always leaves you with an impression that there’s somehow more to it that you’re immediately taking away. We like that.
Jason Freeny has your back. He’s also got your lower intestine, your spleen and quite possibly your eyeball. His deft sculpting fingers are just waiting to rip a well known and beloved toy limb from limb, in the name of his particular brand of Art-meets-Science. In the third instalment of our on going video series, we were lucky enough to hang out with Jason while he performed his "plastic surgery" and divulged a few secrets behind his unique craft.
charity: water is dedicated to help bring clean drinking water to the millions of people worldwide without access to it. Nuvango sat down and talked with Viktoria Harrison about their use of inspiring design to create awareness about their cause.
Architect by trade, artist by compulsion, Toronto's Warren Mack reveals his outlook on the creative process and the ever evolving experimentation within his artistic arsenal.
We spent the day with Lawrence Yang talking about his process, his unusual techniques and his approach to getting the most from his creative hobby in this edition of Behind the Brush.
