Team Macho - 8 ball

Every Tuesday we will tantalize you with teasers from Drake Devonshire; today we’re talking art. When we moved to the County, we brought Toronto art collective, Team Macho, with us. We’ve worked with them before so when looking to adorn our new lake-side locale, commissioning Team Macho was a no-brainer. Their use of mixed-media to edgy but beautiful effect blends with our vision for the Drake by the Lake.

The Drake Devonshire-Team Macho collection includes 40 paintings with a one-of-a-kind work in every guest room. Each piece combines found classically painted landscape and portrait scenes with a provocative twist.

The Team Macho art collective includes Lauchie Reid, Christopher Buchan, Stephen Appleby Barr, Nicholas Aoki and Jacob Whibley. They create art and illustration out of their Toronto studio. The group has shown pieces in Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Amsterdam and recently, the Art Gallery of Ontario.

The seven artists work in tandem (and in anti-tandem) using an array of painting styles to create dark, humourous, whimsical—but always unexpected—pieces. The team describes their creative process as ‘chaotic,’ but this catapults their art to the next level(s). We were thoroughly impressed; you will be too.
