This past month, an unauthorized exhibition of the celebrated UK street artist Banksy‘s works were held in Toronto by his former manager. Having read the background of the artist’s philosophy and artistic mandate not to charge the public for viewing his work, FLY chose to sit out this one. Thanks for the invitation but FLY wanted to support the artist’s wishes & integrity. To FLY’s surprise, a new soon-to-open gallery in Yorkville sponsored a show of 2 brilliant Banksy works (see below) for FREE! Part of their introduction to the Toronto arts scene, Taglialatella Galleries sponsored several other artists in this pop-up location at the entrance of Yorkville Village (formerly Hazelton Lanes).

…other artists were well represented, too. When I left this show, I wandered around the corner to Avenue Rd and discovered this relatively new gallery – Galerie de Bellefeuille. Check out these glittering mosaic (and edgy) Buddhas by Metis Atash sitting proudly in the windows. Definitely worth another visit….http://debellefeuille.com/toronto-artists/

Earlier in June, Urban Gallery launched their annual PRIDE month group show, titled Proud Art, and the gallery was packed for the VIP opening reception. Featured artists included Hank Blondeau, Jean Fode, Jeffrey Mason and Vanessa Storoniak. Here are a few snaps taken of the gallery and artists.

MAY/18 ISSUE – FLY VISITS ARTIST STUDIOS, ATTENDS OPENING OF NEW GALLERY & ATTENDS BLACK-LIGHT SHOW BY ICONIC TORONTO STREET ARTIST

For our third issue, we’ve had to migrate to a new blog-style platform in order to add more photos and content and let’s face it, that’s what magazines are all about, right? Anyway, thanks to Purvin Wai of EZ-Link Solutions, we’ve been able to add more visual options and although FLY is now live via Firefox, Explorer, etc., Google Chrome is giving us a few problems but hopefully these will soon be sorted out. Aaah, technology…grrr!

As always, FLY continues to shine a spotlight on galleries, curators and other arts professionals who have supported the fine arts community in Toronto and Canada as a whole. With our multi-platform social media network, we hope to offer artists promotional exposure not found in traditional media, plus affordable advertising opportunities to galleries, art suppliers and individual artists in order to reach their targeted audience.

Thank you for joining us, enjoy this month’s read!

YOUNG DUTCH-BORN ARTIST PRISCILLA KOOPMAN’s SOLO SHOW – A GREAT SEND-OFF BEFORE SHE RETURNS TO THE NETHERLANDS. FLY discovered this exciting young artist last year when she participated in a Centennial College student group show at Urban Gallery. It was obvious this young lady had a unique talent and FLY was thrilled to visit her recent solo show at The Storys Centre on the Centennial College campus in Toronto. Her work was indeed as provocative and detailed as before but there was a distinct lightness to her palette.

Bravo, Priscilla, you’ve shown amazing growth as an artist and FLY cannot wait to see where this goes…even if we have to see you online from back in Holland! Follow Priscilla via her Instagram account: @allicsirpart
