Brian Jiang

Artist member since 2020

Brian Jiang is a queer non-binary artist and illustrator of Chinese descent based in Toronto. Brian’s practice comprises of drawing, painting, illustration, sequential narrative, and animation. Their current work primarily investigates the creation of hypothetical worlds and the reinterpretation of personal memories and experiences. Brian's recent work is often playful in tone, with content that usually comprises of ambiguous characters, fantastical scenarios, and lush flora. Through their works, Brian seeks to reconcile the complexity of personal identity and establish a connection between the individual, the physical and immaterial worlds . Their image-making balances bold gestural mark making, flat colour planes, implied textural effects, with subtle details and patterning. They are drawn to unconventional colour palettes that are simultaneously discordant yet visually satisfying. Brian’s work references the formal qualities of folk art, 60’s Japanese Graphic design, Fauvism and Surrealism. Brian is a recent graduate of OCADU, and holds a B.DES in Illustration.
