Mark Titchner

Throughout his residency in Toronto, U.K. artist Mark Titchner developed a series of billboards, posters and large-scale wall-drawings that were installed throughout the city and in the AGO's Community and Toronto Now galleries. Drawing on his exploration of themes related to consumption, belief systems and marketing techniques, Titchner's immersive wall drawings and paintings consider how text and bold statements can be used to inspire, communicate to the masses and to bring communities of people together. The artworks produced throughout his residency were developed and executed in conjunction with youth from Oasis Skateboard Factory and the AGO Youth Council.
