Andrew Owen (A01) depicts a multiplicity of persona and a range of moods

As a professional artist, and a pioneer public art producer, ANDREW OWEN (A01) was one of the first to recognize the value of street art in 1980’s TORONTO.  His projects – paintings, photo-based works and pieces made from repurposed materials – have been shown in Vancouver, Korea, Japan, Taiwan and the Republic of China.  He lives and works in TORONTO and VANCOUVER.

You’ll find some of Andrew’s public photo-based works in the Spadina Avenue/Kensington Market area.
