My Last Painting Project in OCADU will be about Rebirth

My last painting project in OCAD U before graduating from my BFA program will address the concept of rebirth same as many of my other projects. I decided to make it an evolution of the below illustration that I did for Good News Toronto newspaper for their September 2008 issues, as can be seen below. You can find the full copy of that issue of the Newspaper in this link: http://www.goodnewstoronto.ca/pdf/September2008.pdf

The article for which I made this illustration, is on page 8, “Personal Story” by Jennifer Hicks. I also have another illustration in that issue in page 2.

Donated my art to Lifeline Syria Auction

Puntitledaola Aron -Badin and me, above us is my donated art piece  ” Mother Consoling the Child III”(A subject related to my advanced studio research on Autism and Neuroscience which I have created several different paintings for) for Lifeline Syria Auction in OCAD U Nov27.

The Auction was for the purpose of raising funds to bring a Syrian family to Canada. Paola is the Manager of International Relations in OCAD U. The event was very well organized and I got to talk to some very nice and caring people. Below is the bigger size image of my painting.



My art exhibited in OCAD University for Ontario Government Announcement Event

My painting “Windows of Possibilities in Autism” which I posted in October 9th was exhibited this morning in the great hall of OCAD University as part of the Ontario Government Announcement Event. Here are some views of the exhibition. It is always a good feeling to see my painting installed along with the works of other artists. However, I am surprised that the details of the works such as title and name of the artist are missing!. I don’t know why that happened honestly.

I am happy that I chose a relatively small size. Mine is the abstract one with ochre yellow background. I was also very impressed by the works of other students.





Work in Progress in my Advanced Studio Space

In mid September I published a post titled ” New Beginnings” with a picture of my newly assigned advanced studio space in OCAD which showed empty walls and easel. Here is a look at the space in two weeks. The studio space is located at 205 Richmond St. Toronto, (Corner of 205 Richmond and Duncan St.)

My advanced studio space

The sign between the paintings reads ” Raising Awareness for Autism Spectrum Condition” which will be my focus for this term. I am working on other subjects as well.  I am now making experimental paintings with the theme of colourful puzzle pieces which is the  symbol of Autism Spectrum Condition. However, they need much feedback, critique and reviews by my teachers. So a long journey is ahead…
