Shlomi Greenspan is an Israeli artist, currently living and working in Toronto. He studied at the Avni Institute of Art and Design in Tel Aviv and at OCAD University where he received his BFA. His work has been featured in various curated exhibitions across Canada and in the United States. Greenspanʼs practice is multidisciplinary, with an emphasis on painting, animation and video installation. His work interfaces elements of time, narrative and storytelling to explore the various ways information technologies and mechanical devices mediate and distort the perception of time and space. By calling attention to certain patterns, cycles and unfolding moments inherent in every day life, Greenspan examines the ambivalence and mutability of lived experience in the 21st century.
// THE ANNUAL // is the Gladstone Hotel’s annual independent contemporary art event, offering an open and fertile ground for engaging and emerging practices.
