HANGED & DRAWN: NICHOLAS DI GENOVA PIERRE DURETTE TOM NGO AMANDA NEDHAM TRISTRAM LANSDOWNE LUKE PAINTER

Friday May 27th at LE GALLERY (1183 Dundas St. W) 
The last decade in the international art world has seen the act of drawing and graphic tendencies welcomed into the hallowed halls of arts institutions. Typically sidelined as a less than serious pursuit or as a means of preparation and study, Hanged + Drawn thrusts 6 Canadian artists of inimitable skill and talent forward as the vanguard of this new generation of mark makers. Hanged + Drawn highlights artists who are forming the basis of their artistic practices in their unique ability to develop a distinctly drawn language. These artists have found themselves the focus of critical contemporary collectors and institutions, having shown in almost all major international art fairs and within museums and institutions across North America + Europe.Facebook event page here

MARK PECKMEZIAN: BOOK


Mark Peckmezian, born 1985, is a Toronto-based artist and

documentary photography, Mark attempts to leverage the analog-
digital divide, producing work that draws into relief the enduring
value of analog-ness in our new digital-dominated photographic
landscape. He recently completed his BFA in Photography from
Ryerson University in Toronto, and is represented for commercial
and editorial work by agency Stash, at Stashartists.com.
His photographs have been published in Prefix Photo, and on the
