Special artist collaboration takes rivalry between Montréal and Toronto to a new level!

Denise Buisman-Pilger and Jono Doiron – two Montreal based artists, collaborated to create two panels that take the rivalry between Montréal and Toronto to a whole new level.  Mashing together the monster movies of old with Canada’s favorite pass time, they managed to fuse their distinctly different styles together into two unique works of art titled ‘Montréal Mayhem’ and ‘Toronto Terror’.  The artists will each exhibit one of the pieces in their individual booths (#529 and #809) at the 10th edition of the Artist Project.

“The idea was born on our drive back from the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition last year.  A six hour drive turned into an impromptu brainstorming session, by the time we reached Montréal we had most of the details worked out." ~ Jono Doiron 

“Because we live in Montréal and the pieces would be revealed in Toronto we thought it would be fun to play with the rivalry between the cities. Using the hockey team mascots as well as the distinct architectural differences between the cities gave us a way to fuse our distinctly different styles together” ~ Denise Buisman Pilger

The artists are looking forward to finally revealing this collaboration at the Artist Project 2017.  Denise Buisman Pilger will exhibit ‘Montréal Mayhem’ in booth #529 and Jono Doiron will show off ‘Toronto Terror’ in booth #809.
