Openings: Trevor Wheatley at #Hashtag GalleryIn his first solo show since graduating at Concordia University in Montreal, contemporary and street artist Trevor Wheatley is triumphantly embedding himself into the artistic weave of Toronto with A Return Where. Among his impressive range of current projects, including collaborations with Tokyo Police Club, Stussy, and NXNE – Wheatley has produced an incredible body of work ready to show at #Hashtag Gallery.
Toronto has no lack of talent, and Wheatley is a perfect example of the unique work being produced in this city. Touching on the nature of graphic language, symbolism in media and corporate identity, Wheatley examines the purely aesthetic elements of brand design. The contrast of image and context is wildly relevant in A Return Where, considering well-known images of iconography and their place in our world.
Wheatley takes an introspective look into the urban structures that command our attention. Sure to inspire and enlighten, engages your comfort zone and tweaks your perspective. You can read out 12 Questions with him, here.
A Return Where opens May 16th at #Hashtag Gallery 801 Dundas St W Toronto, ON
