Oakville based artist Leanna TenEycke’s work draws from the realms of the surreal and fantastic to produce ethereal characters and the worlds they inhabit. Leanna is the current Art Battle Canada Champion, as well as a 2015 International Live Painting Champion.
An animation designer by day and traditional painter by night, within her painting practice, Natasha’s work is exaggerated and loud, taking on influences of North American pop culture and subdued by her classical upbringing in Russia. Natasha has won multiple Art Battles and is a Toronto Champion.
Questioning the divisions enacted by concepts of urban space, nature, and culture, Nick re-imagines the constructed environments of reality. A joyful live painter, Nick’s inventive techniques ensure that each piece is a performance in itself. Nick was a 2015 National Finalist and is the current reigning Toronto Art Battle Champion.
Olga Pankova’s colour-rich works radiate with vitality. Known for her joyful depictions of an array of subject matter, Olga’s current focus is on portrait painting, and representations of the natural world. Eclectic, yet harmonious, her works seem to exist in a domain of dreams. Olga represented Markham in the 2014 Art Battle National Championship, and is an audience favorite.
