About the Facilitator

Phillip Saunders is a multidisciplinary artist and arts educator based in Toronto, Ontario. His practice includes oil painting, charcoal drawing, mural making, and digital illustrations. Phillip explores two worlds in his art practice, his oil paintings contrast sharply against his mural works; his oil practice takes on a traditional realist approach reminiscent of the old masters, where his mural work take on a contemporary pop art feel.

His distinctive use of colour and abstract patterns portray a unique perspective of human emotion through colour theory, with the goal of invoking joy, reflection and happiness in the viewer. Phillip also takes a keen interest in aspects of classical realism, his oil paintings are primarily focused on the Black Body set in landscapes of ancient times. His work attempts to bond the past and present through figurative expressions nuanced in West African igbo culture, which is exemplified in his most recent series “Hebrew Nuance”.
