That’s 5 with Briony Douglas

In honor of Women’s History Month, StockX will be spotlighting some of our favorite women in the game.

For our next installment, we spoke to Briony Douglas, an artist and photographer based in Toronto. Briony’s work has caught the attention of the art, photography, and sneaker/streetwear industries thanks to her unique style of visual art and photography, emphasizing elements of surrealism and pop culture. Briony’s art is meant to strike conversations, push boundaries, and reshape the perception of how we view ourselves. Her work strives to create a strong influence on her audience through storytelling with an evident theme of female empowerment visible in her work.

Who are some of the women that have influenced you?

I always struggle to answer the “Who do I look up to?” question because it’s not the celebrity status of a person I admire but rather what they represent. I am drawn towards women that are outspoken, unapologetic, unique, and that push boundaries. I respect a woman that doesn’t take no for an answer and is willing to work her ass off to achieve her goals.

What is most overrated at the moment?

The “Cute-but-Psycho” trend. In a society where we are struggling daily to bring the convo of mental health to the forefront, glamourizing mental struggles to be cool gives the wrong impression and we take a step back in helping everyone out there.

What is most underrated at the moment?

Celebrating other women’s victories as if they are our own. If we become jealous when we see others succeed we only attract negative energy, but if we celebrate these achievements as if they are our own and genuinely feel happy for them we put the energy out there that we too are capable of those achievements.

If you could give advice to your younger self, what would you say?

To lead by example even if that makes you uncomfortable or unpopular at that particular moment.

What’s next for you?

My solo art show, “Homage.” I have spent the last 6 months sourcing and designing 6 collage sculptures that pay tribute to subjects that are important to me, such as Jordan, Basquait and many more. The show will be running April 4th to 13th in Toronto and is open to the public!
