AT.AW: Orphans, Strays and Twees

Read more about AT.AW. and the Orphans here: http://at-aw.com/orphans.html

The Orphans were initially a street art series that I developed while I was in the UK and was looking for a way to enliven the often dreary urban environment by wrapping these hand drawn characters around postal boxes, utility poles or anywhere else that I felt was left derelict and needed some loving(although the very first one I did was at the Letteiri’s on Queen and Spadina while bored out of my mind at work…). In doing this, I was toying around with ideas of a mass produced artwork and the way it can create a textiled urban environment that both uniquely proclaimed the artwork/style and suggested a more positive outlook for the city.

More about Margot:

My name is Margot, 25 years old, born on August 1. I currently reside in Toronto, Ontario.
Ever since I was little, I’ve been a creative, imaginative girl, constantly teaching myself different ways to make the things I envision in my head. A current love of mine that has grown over the years is hand sewing things from wool felt. Although, I also love to draw and paint whenever I can. The thing I value most in my creative execution is my attention to small details. I often feel they get over looked, but I can’t settle for anything less!

My main creative focus for the year 2012 and beyond will be working on my line “Pidpenky”, making framed felt mushroom pieces and other forest related art objects. Pidpenky is a Ukranian word that refers to certain mushrooms that grow “beneath the stump”. I thought it seemed fitting. My other focus is creating paper doll portraits and pictures.
