Hello, I am Marvin Veloso. I am an interdisciplinary artist and designer based in Toronto, Canada. My work draws upon scholarship in cultural studies, urban environmental justice, and critical theory. Through performance, poetry, and mixed media, I reflect upon embodied relationships to space and place, as well as their implications toward social and political processes. In August 2022, my forthcoming project – part of an artists residency at ArtScape Gibraltar Point – responds to the theme of Luminous Bodies by considering the vitalities within urban landscapes amidst intensifying ecological emergence.
I hold an Honours B.A. in Culture and Expression (Summa Cum Laude) from York University, as well as a certificate in Cultural and Artistic Practices for Environmental and Social Justice. In 2018, I obtained an advanced diploma in graphic design from Seneca College, and worked as an art director at an advertising agency.
