Hello! You are listening to Curator on the Go Podcast! Today I have the pleasure of speaking to Toronto-based visual artist David Brown.
David graduated from the Ontario College of Art and Design in 1992. He has a 25-year award-winning career in the international art and design industry. David taught Industrial Design at OCADU while operating a successful product design studio. David is the founder and managing director of Toronto’s SpeakEasy, creating networking opportunities for established and emerging artists since 1996. In 2013, he initiated the Five Star collective aimed at facilitating member participation in international art fairs.
David’s abstract encaustic paintings have been shown at numerous galleries and museums across Canada and the U.S. Recently he had a solo exhibition at The Painting Center in NYC. His paintings are held in private and corporate collections in North America, Europe, and Asia. The products he designed have been sold across North America, and his work has been published in books and magazines throughout Canada and the United States, such as Azure, Canadian Art, Style at Home, House and Home and The Toronto Star to name a few.
