I was so excited to attend the Opening Night of The Artists Project, that was being held at the Better Living Centre in The Exhibition Grounds.
The night was bustling with art enthusiasts and serious buyers. From 7pm onwards it was wall to wall with people.
The booth I was most drawn to and I could speak for a lot more people there was Mitchell Clark Meller’s mysterious works.
While I was admiring each piece from his earliest collection a very interested buyer came and right-on-the-spot purchased my favourite piece “Diplomatic”.
This self-taught Outsider artist discovered a dedication to painting, and turned his suffering into art. Mitchell claims he has an ‘overactive brain’, which translates into layers of acrylics, pastels, pencil, household paint, and glaze on canvas. Each painting captures his mind’s fleeting thoughts, offering the artist’s unique vision of the world through large, abstracted canvases and multi-dimensional portraiture. The resulting artworks are subconscious narratives of discontentment and critique, mockery and playfulness, or just the simplicity of being.
If anyone is interested in attending the show www.theartistsprojecttoronto.com. You can purchase tickets when you arrive. Booth 222 is all I have to say. Enjoy!

La Petite Rosé
A refined Bar Stool for the modern minimalist. The frame is a achieved by bending 3/8″ steel, limiting the number of joints and creating fine uninterrupted lines. The stool is then refined with a gentle copper coating adding to it’s delicate appearance. The seat is created in a similar manner, using one continuous loop, the intention being to simulate a piece of fabric draped across the frame.

I am not normally a huge fan of plants within a home or business setting but this quaint Montreal cafe, Olive et Gourmando did it right. From the window boxes to their front entrance display the greenery not only looked beautiful but smelled great too.
