Erin McCluskey

Nathan Phillips Square
Booth 260

Erin McCluskey is an emerging artist based in Toronto. She graduated from OCAD University with a Bachelor in Design, majoring in Illustration. As a painter, illustrator and mural artist, Erin uses her background in Illustration and Theatre to create images that exist on paper, walls, objects, spaces, and stages.

In her painting practice, Erin works primarily with gouache and oils. She is drawn to bright and saturated colours. She enjoys how colour can be used in imagery drawn from reality to create new environments, spaces and atmospheres. Erin draws inspiration from her sketching, plein air painting and the snapshots she takes. She is interested in capturing intimate and fleeting moments in paint.

In her mural practice, Erin enjoys creating large, colourful, scenes with flat shapes often exploring a variety of subjects such as nature, the body and the city. She is interested in the imagery that is present in our public spaces and she is passionate about using art as a catalyst for social change. Erin has created over 20 murals throughout Toronto and the GTA and has recently worked with the CBC, Arts Etobicoke, StreetArtToronto and more. She will be live painting at TOAF on July 8th from 10-1 pm.
