TATJANA HUTINEC at RIVERDALE ARTWALK 2021
Toronto artist Tatjana Hutinec launched As Above so Below, her exhibitor booth filled with stormy paintings, at the Riverdale ArtWalk 2021, August 21 – August 22.
In her body of work, titled As Above so Below Tatjana Hutinec highlights awareness of climate changes related to human consciousness, (egocentric) perception and actions impacted by consumerism.
Hutinec believes that art can inspire us to achieve a deeper awareness – focused on the relationship with oneself as an element of the whole and choosing positive personal practices that can help prevent climate catastrophe.
Since the pandemic closedowns in 2019, and art event cancelations, Riverdale Artwalk 2021 was the first outdoor art exhibition.
One of Toronto’s premier art exhibitions, Riverdale ArtWalk is a FREE two-day, public fine art juried exhibition showcasing selected artists at Jimmie Simpson Park in Toronto’s flourishing Queen East arts district, as well as a two week Online Show and Sale.
Hutinec has been creating and exhibiting her artwork in Canada, Croatia and Dominican Republic, while teaching art workshops to communities as well as creating wearable art and sculptures for TV, film and theatre.
“Greatfull for the opportunity to show my art and invite people to come in person, I am exited about my participation in the Riverdale Artwalk 2021” said Tatjana Hutinec, who grew up and studied art and design in Zagreb, Croatia. Since 1990, displaced due to the war outburst in Croatia, Tatjana has been living in Toronto.
Discovering the art exhibits of Missisauga’s Celebration Square by Sherene Almjawer
Life does imitate art but not always in the best ways. The large shipping container in Mississauga’s Celebration Square housing the Love Local Art Shop should’ve been bustling with admirers of Amee Raval’s glass art on Sunday, August 29. Instead, much like Edward Hopper’s painting “Nighthawks”, excited patrons were stuck peering at the myriad of beautiful glass works from outside the little art shop.
Two pieces caught the sunlight: circular mirrors decorated with colourful pieces of glass in the shapes of women’s heads, each one donning a differently styled headdress.
Little did we know, the power in both Mississauga’s Civic Centre and the art shop had gone out, locking everyone out of both buildings.
Luckily for us, Celebration Square is a haven for art. As part of the Mi Casa, Your Casa 2.0 installation—running from July 30 to September 6 by artists Esrawe and Cadena—Celebration Square is decorated in 14 red-frame houses inspired by the street markets of Latin America. Hanging from the top each frame are swings, letting visitors step into the home, watch the strip of bulbs at every house light up and swing under the warm summer sun.
Families, couples and children alike took turns immersing themselves in the little pieces of familiarity and homeliness, just as someone would in the lively streets of a Latin American market.
Fortunately, the Love Local Art Shop will feature a few more artists, every Friday to Sunday until September 5, giving art lovers one more chance to meet and support their favourite local artists before Celebration Square introduces a new set of exhibitions.

The Art of Banksy Exhibition Toronto
The Art of Banksy Exhibition
Wednesday, June 13 – Wednesday, July 11
@ 213 Sterling Road, Toronto
Tickets go on sale May 12 at www.banksyexhibit.com
Toronto, ON – On Wednesday, June 13, Toronto welcomes the North American Premiere of “The Art of Banksy”, an acclaimed showcase featuring 80 original works associated with, arguably, the most intriguing and talked-about artist in modern history. “The Art of Banksy” has already generated excitement in Melbourne, Amsterdam, Tel Aviv and Auckland. Now Toronto, having beat out both Athens and Stockholm, steps up to host this spectacular exhibit.
Banksy, whose identity is the art world’s biggest secret, is an enigmatic artist and world-recognized political activist. His graffiti-influenced stencil technique, often combined with anti-establishment slogans, is immediately recognizable and never fails to generate immediate attention. Banksy’s various works, which in addition to paintings, also include sculptures and special displays, are seen on city walls, bridges and streets throughout the world.
“The Art of Banksy”, curated by Steve Lazarides, the artist’s former agent, displays the world’s largest collection of Banksy’s works. Included in the exhibition are the iconic “Balloon Girl”, ranked in 2017 as “The United Kingdom’s number one favourite artwork”, “Flag Wall”, an urbanized take on the famous picture of soldiers raising the U.S. flag at Iwo Jima, “Laugh Now”, a witty piece depicting a foreboding message, and many other pieces, no less compelling and equally thought-provoking.
“This is a one-of-a-kind exhibition. You will never again have the opportunity to see this many of Banksy’s works in one place. Once the exhibition is over, the artwork will be returned to art collectors around the world, and the chances that they will be displayed together again in the future are extremely slim,” says Steve Lazarides.
The Toronto exhibition will be mounted in a raw space at 213 Sterling Road (Lansdowne Metro stop), an area described by BlogTO as “Toronto’s next big thing” and “a neighbourhood for art – contemporary art,” with neighbouring businesses including the new location for the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Anansi Press, Henderson Brewing and Drake Commissary. This prestigious exhibition of originals – all privately owned by collectors – offers a rare opportunity for Toronto to enter Banksy’s world.
“Starvox Exhibits is pleased to bring to Toronto, the North American Premiere of “The Art of Banksy”. I am proud to be able to have a collection of this calibre as the first exhibit under our new business division and in association with Live Nation,” says Corey Ross, President & CEO, Starvox Exhibits.
“Toronto, with its thriving visual arts scene is for us, the perfect city to premiere “The Art of Banksy” in North America,” says Michel Boersma, Senior Vice President Family Entertainment & Theatre, Live Nation. “Together with Steve Lazarides, we have been able to assemble the largest collection of Banksy art ever exhibited, which is fitting for a world-class city like Toronto.”
Bell Media is the official media sponsor of “The Art of Banksy” exhibition.
Worldwide demand for “The Art of Banksy” is off-the-charts. Consequently, the exhibit is scheduled to be in Toronto for 4 weeks only. Advance tickets are available through American Express “Front of the Line” beginning Monday, May 7. General tickets go on sale beginning Saturday, May 12 at 10:00 a.m. and are available online at www.banksyexhibit.com. A limited quantity of tickets will also be available on site at 213 Sterling starting June 13. Ticket price is $35.00.
