Julia Mercanti

Julia Mercanti is a Canadian creative and artist based out of Toronto. She’s most known for her cheeky illustrations and observational art.

Sage Barnes

Known for portraits of figurative busts with their faces obscured by flowers, smiley faces, or thick, colorful, gestural marks, American-born Barnes balances his work between the spaces of the real and surreal.

Sage Szkabarnicki-Stuart

Sage is a self-taught photographer from Toronto. Her work focuses on how humans interact with their home environment. Her work is animated by this central question: what defines a place as home?
