Michael Brown

TRIK, CAUSR, BIRD, graffiti tags birthed in the middle of the night. Michael Brown's artwork is heavily influenced by big cities: places where sanctioned advertising and signage competes for space with street art and graffiti. This artist uses his canvas as a place to create and to explore symbols drawn from his subconscious. The placement of a symbol within a square or rectangle on his canvas is synonymous to a graffiti tag on a rectangular newspaper box or an arrow on a one-way street sign. Michael has exhibited at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibit and the Toronto International Art Fair. He is a recipient of grants from the Toronto and Ontario Arts Councils.
