Manaz Raiszadeh is an American artist and explorer who has been exploring and discovering our world and herself through art. Referring to herself as an "intuitional abstract painter," the genesis of her artistic inspiration comes from her parent's tale and her Afghani cultural background. Manaz often depicts houses and villages in her compositions, as she believes that "we can all relate to the place where we are from". She creates her works using acrylics, pastels, and collages on canvas or wood.

Curator on the Go Podcast

Ella Mazur creates art traditionally with pen and ink, as well as digitally on her iPad, often combining the two. Her work is continually inspired by the great diversity of our planet, creatures and plants that inhabit it, by the ocean, the forests, the mysteries of the stars in the sky. With just a little bit of ink, Ella can tell stories about those things, and she hopes that they will make people pause and wonder, let you escape into an impossible world, or awaken your curiosity.

Curator on the Go Podcast

Brianne Burnell is a mixed media artist from Toronto, Canada. Her work is intuitive and explorative, more interested in the process of combining colors and shapes than executing a specific image. She combines torn hand-painted paper with acrylic and other media in a distinct uplifting color palette. In this process, she finds calm and softness, and this serene feeling is passed on to the viewer.

Hello! You are listening to Curator on the Go Podcast! I had the pleasure of speaking to Canadian abstract artist Linds Miyo.

Born and raised in California, her work strives to evoke the strong, direct light of her childhood. A trauma survivor, Linds is interested in the balance between intention and that which is beyond our control, the meeting place between our best efforts and happenstance. She often uses broad representational panes of textured black in her work, washing layers of color over top - folding the dark relief of the past into multi-dimensional present-day, with honesty, happiness, and sparkle. Linds Miyo lives and works in Toronto and is currently in a studio residency at the Museum of Contemporary Art.
