In his first solo show since graduating at Concordia University in Montreal, contemporary and street artist Trevor Wheatley is triumphantly embedding himself into the artistic weave of Toronto with A Return Where.

Toronto has no lack of talent, and Wheatley is a perfect example of the unique work being produced in this city. Touching on the nature of graphic language, symbolism in media, and corporate identity Wheatley examines the purely aesthetic elements of brand design. The contrast of image and context is wildly relevant in A Return Where, considering well-known images of iconography and their place in our world.

Wheatley takes an introspective look into the urban structures that command our attention. Sure to inspire and enlighten, Wheatley engages your comfort zone and tweaks your perspective.
