While the narrative of Canadian art continues to be written, the following Canucks are currently tops in the art world:
One of my favorite artists. Period. Altmejd is a Montreal-born, New York-based sculptor whose intricate works are both beautiful and grotesque.
A graduate of the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vanvouver, Koh does just everything, from prints and photographs, to installations and performances. He even has his own Youtube channel.
Born in Alberta, Dorland currently lives and paints in Toronto. Although his landscapes and portraits are often compared to works by Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven, a much better comparable is Peter Doig.
A graduate of OCAD University – before it was a University – Boyle is an interdisciplinary artist whose body of work includes porcelain sculptures and large-scale installations.
