The Arena – Live Painting Performance by Callen Schaub
April 15, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$15
Montreal-based artist Callen Schaub’s paintings seem to defy gravity. Colours burst from the centre of the image, and paint drips down every edge of the canvas. If you look at them and ask yourself how these explosions of acrylic paint could have been made, you wouldn’t be alone. Luckily for us, Schaub isn’t shy about his techniques, which are stunning performances in themselves. – Mercedes Grundy, CBC Arts
