Hank Blondeau is a former digital producer reborn as an artist. He teaches part-time at Centennial College and lives and works in Toronto -though his imagination takes him regularly to many other places
The world we inhabit is changing so quickly, it is hard to grasp what the lives of the generation before ours went through, never mind what the generations to come will face. Through my work, I explore what these divides mean to us as individuals, our society and to our collective future.

Eugene is an Asian gay man who immigrated to Canada from South Korea 5 years ago. He likes to express his experiences, emotions, and personal philosophy through his work.
Living in Toronto has been my dream since when I was 16. I feel that Toronto has afforded me a safe space to be who I am and an opportunity to explore both my creative and intellectual sides. I am happy to call Toronto my home. I strive to live my life fearlessly.
Barbara Zumer loves words, creative writing and making a statement. She has worked as a producer in television commercial production for over 20 years both internationally and nationally.
URBAN GALLERY LAUNCHES ITS ANNUAL PRIDE GROUP SHOW IN TORONTO [June 10, 2017]
"What a wonderful showcase of multi-media artworks from four talented Toronto-based artists from the LGBT community!! Congratulations to URBAN GALLERY and its curator Allen Shugar, for presenting an outstanding exhibition of paintings, text-based graphics, digital and acrylic on canvas art celebrating this year’s annual PRIDE month. I got there nice and early and had the gallery to myself to record a quick video walk-around."
"The first artist to arrive at the gallery was the charming Eugene Nam whose striking large format acrylic-on-canvas works were both powerful and beautiful. The textural quality of his work was such that I wanted to reach out and touch the brushstrokes…..but I resisted!"
