Studio Visit w/ Artist Luke Siemens

Posted by Madeleine Till, 7 months, 1 week ago

Luke Siemens is a multidisciplinary artist with a keen interest in architecture and condo-culture. His tongue-in-cheek installation PlyGuy is included in our upcoming group show View Finder at the Drake Devonshire. We caught up with Luke at his studio in Toronto’s west end to talk about his process, interests, and future plans.

Studio visit with AKIN artist Shanna Van Maurik

Posted by Stacie Ant, 8 months, 3 weeks ago

One of our all time favorite Toronto artists is the pastel princess Shanna Van Maurik.She will be selling her work at the Drake lobby on June 1st as a part of our Akin + Pixel & Bristle pop ups. Shanna's work is as fun as her lipstick collection. Meet the dreamy artist behind the acid washed portraits as we visit her in her studio.
