ARTBeat Brampton will be an inspirational art walk in the downtown core, showcasing local artists from Brampton. Each artist will be paired with a downtown business and will display their art work on the above noted date & time for the public to participate in guided tours or self-directed tour with the help of the event map.

This year’s event aims to enhance community engagement with the ARTS and ARTISTS of Brampton through the inclusion of an “art making” station and ARTS market component on the Saturday.  The idea is to activate Vivian Lane with a hands-on activity for the community as well as create a marketplace opportunity for Brampton artists/artisans to sell unique artistic items.

Kick off of ARTBeat will take place at Beaux Arts Galleries, where participants can meet volunteers/tour guides and pick up their maps and leave written comments of their experience. Beaux Arts Brampton is the lead on this community art event with committee partners, as they work to continue to create opportunities and beautify public and private spaces with art and culture.

Ravinzangel-62.jpg

Ravinzangel was founded by artist Amanda Bhikha in 2016 to honour and remember her brother Ravin, who passed away from suicide when she was ten year old. Amanda creates artwork inspired by her journey of living without him and all the lessons it had taught her throughout the years after. Her artwork is reproduced into wearable art clothing and accessories with the hope that those who wear them feel empowered and inspired.

 

Also for my booth, would it have a table? And could I use some grid walls? if not I can bring mine but just double checking.

Shweta is an engineering graduate from India and a SELF-TAUGHT paper-cut artist based out of Brampton.

Jasmine is an emerging Brampton artist and graphic designer; acrylic paint is her medium of choice.

 

Jasmine's work has always been abstract and non-representational; texture, pattern, colour, line and shape are her favourite subjects. She is currently focusing on the use of palette knives and even household objects such as paper towel rolls to create texture.

 

Jasmine has been heavily influenced by Modernist Piet Mondrian’s primary colour palette. Most recently, the drawings of Ronald L. Bloore inspired her to incorporate more curves into her line and colour paintings.

 

Experimentation and iteration are key to her process, which is informed by her design background. Jasmine often researches and creates prototypes but when she is ready for the final, and often large, painting, she just goes for it!

Tara Cress has been inspired by animals all her life; both artistically and generally. They are often the muses for her detailed pen and ink renderings, focused on bringing their emotions to the forefront. For this artist, wildlife art need not be a fully detailed picture of an animal in its habitat, instead she focuses on the texture of the subject and ways for the viewer to fill in omitted details, such as colour or context. 

Tara is a local talent and has been developing her professional body of work since 2015. In 2017, two of her designs for the Muskoka Chair Project for Canada150 were selected and displayed as part of the City of Brampton celebrations. She enjoys connecting with people and is establishing herself within the local arts community. Since 2018, she has appeared in four shows at Beaux Arts Brampton, where she'll be exhibiting a solo show entitled Fine Lines in the Cove Gallery from November 6-30th.

Noura Unrau’s unique artistry comes from a deeply personal perspective. Her awe-inspiring mixed media work evokes powerful reactions, whether it’s her bold depiction of feminist sensuality through the use of aluminum wire and fabric sculptures, the intricacy of up-cycled industrial-content collages, or the colourful reconstruction of nature using actual items found on wooded trails.


Noura has spent a lifetime sharing her impressions of the world around her. She spent much of her childhood travelling and taking in influences on a global scale. After finishing her studies in Egyptology and graduating from university in Cairo with a Bachelor in Ancient Egyptian Studies and Tourism, Noura continued to develop her unique artistic style, and has been commissioned by clients for artworks in the Middle East and here at home in Canada. Noura’s passion lies in transforming reclaimed textile and hardware into striking artworks.

Noura Unrau

My love of art began at very early age, although I was not able to pursue it due to family commitments. But later in life, when circumstance permitted, I decided to leave the corporate world and commit myself to become a full time artist. I first learned art from a famous Chinese painting Master with ink and water. I later incorporated the fast and strong brush work from Chinese painting into my western oils and watercolours. My philosophy for creating art is to emanates energy, life-force and movement. I view the canvas as an extension of the world around me, to capture that moment in time with no filter but only my interpretation.

 

In order to create the energy and movement, I forgo the preliminary sketch and under paint, instead I spend the time to study the subject until I am ready to paint directly on the canvas. This free-style approach is the only way to harmoniously connect the energy and the movement of the brush. With this, a transcendent experience is created between the artist, the artwork, and the viewer.
