Melissa Espina

Espina connects and reconnects with her work by using the sculptural elements of her medium, the removal and reapplication of paint, large gestures and bold colour. Her work is about ones ability to embrace the assumed future while identifying with the past.

Born in Toronto, Canada, Espina has a BFA from OCAD University where she completed her undergraduate thesis in Florence, Italy. She has held two solo exhibitions curated by Pari Nadimi  at the 2 of 2Gallery, has showcased her work in galleries and artist run centres around Europe and Canada, and continues to sell pieces to designers and home stagers in the Greater Toronto Area.
