Travis Shilling @ the Gladstone Hotel
I just want to throw this out there...Travis is one of my favorite artists of all time. a real gem. i just hope you get to know his work...its one of those situations where ive never met him but have been following his career so closely as its kind of blossomed from when i was first in Toronto at the Ontario College of Art in the 90's...I cant even recall when i first saw his stuff either...maybe a yorkville opening? his famed father Arthur Shilling was an early favorite of mine and i guess it must have stemmed from that. such a story teller in his painting, Travis, and its always something i wish i had with my work. He is showing now at the Gladstone hotel...enjoy.
