Artist in Residence – Queen Gallery, Toronto Canada, April 27 – May 6
The Queen Gallery in Toronto is excited to welcome Vancouver based Artist J Peachy as its Artist in Residence from April 27 to May 6th, 2012. Peachy is a multi-faceted lateral thinker, hunter-gather and a creative warrior who is constantly responding to themes around his own personal psycho-social-environmental conflict.
J is commonly known as a visual artist, but is a radio and television producer, a social media space-traveller, poet, stand-up comic and body painter. Along with his dog Star, he amazingly has accumulated a wide array of creative gifts and talents and stored them in what he calls his ‘Artistic Home Depot’
We hope you will join us at the gallery during his time with us, he will undoubtedly will provide a perspective that will entertain, confuse or emotionally provoke you. For more information on the artist please see jpeachygallery.com
