We are delighted to introduce our current Akin Vitrine Gallery artist, Akin Dupont alumi, and Akin MOCA artist Felicia Cirstea. Felicia’s work will be on exhibit in our galleries beginning at 1485 Dupont for the month of October and then 1747 St. Clair Avenue West for the month of November.

Felicia Cirstea is a Romanian-Canadian contemporary visual artist based in Toronto, Canada. Born and raised in Bucharest, Romania, Felicia Cirstea completed her studies at OCAD University and Toronto School of Arts. Her practice involves drawing and painting while investigating themes of personal identity, self-discovery, survival and cultural displacement. Using symbolism, abstraction and representation Felicia’s paintings carry a visual language influenced by architectural landmarks of Europe, nature, biology and Romanian folklore while depicting human forms such as faces as the main subject matter.

We are delighted to introduce our current Akin Vitrine Gallery artist, Akin MOCA member, Erin Candela. Erin’s work will be on exhibit in our gallery at 1747 St. Clair Avenue West for the month of October.

Erin Candela is a Canadian artist originally from northern BC, currently living in Toronto. Often using historical documents such as photographs, public school books, nature encyclopedias and community journals, themes of Memory and identity are frequently present in her drawings. Ideas of North, Canadian landscape, and portentous depictions of wild creatures and characters are also common and contribute to a scattered and ambiguous narrative.
