I have one of my characters featured in ‘iMygrate’; an exhibition of character art that opens on February 19th, 8:00pm at Olio Gallery, Victoria, Canada. More details below.

IMYGRATE IS A MIGRATION OF ARTWORKS. Artists from Canada, USA, Germany, Portugal, Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan, Argentina, Israel, Brazil, Australia, India, Netherlands,Croatia, Sweden and Italy Send Their Artwork On A Road Trip Across Canada. Exhibition Opening February 19th.

In the Summer of 2007, Anteism sent out a call for submissions to artists from around the world to submit small (letter size) character based artworks. These character artworks would then be distributed across the 2nd largest country in the world.

iMygrate will document and showcase the characters that went on this voyage through original artworks & photographs. There will also be an interactive multimedia display to highlight the trail that these characters took. As a companion to the show and to document the project a publication will be created by Anteism Publishing and will be available at the exhibition and online through their website.
