#Melanin – Michael Bole, a Creative Director at Gallery 1017

 

Beauty Reflections

Last year I was invited to an art show by one of the artists exhibiting at The Annex Art Party 6. Eva Frydrych has been supportive of our initiative from the start with valuable input that helped grow the community.

One of her greater contributions was the invite to Beauty Reflection; this introduced me to an art gallery on 1017 Dupont. That’s where I met Adrian, the owner. We started talking about several topics including Toronto, Toronto art, and our culture.

That's when I pitched the idea.

Melanin - Celebrating over 600 years of Black History! We've been working on making it happen ever since. We continued our discussions and since then I've explained the concept behind Creative Unicorns of Toronto and that it’s a system designed for artists to share time and resources, collaborate together and work on in-house or 3rd party projects. From The Annex Art Party 6, Beauty Reflections, to now this makes Melanin a perfect platform to collaborate and use data from this event to continue creating content.

 

Creative Director

I will take on the role of Creative Director for these projects and I’m bringing a collaborative incubator that includes Jessica Singh as Copy Editor, another Business Developer Shorty Bryenton and Salomeh Ahmadi as our Copywriter. 

As a Creative Director with an eye for Business Development and a project management background, I will oversee the project and work closely with creators to make the best version of their vision come to life

The Melanin art Exhibits + Programs

Content will be broken down into programs and art exhibits. Art exhibits set the mood for a week or two animating about 1,000 Sq ft of wall space with art; presenting new themes that make statements relevant to our times. We're also developing programs like free-flowing dance, art classes, guided meditation, and potluck dinners.

300 Unicorns – Weekly Potluck Meetups

300 Unicorns

A two-hour event where we share our food and culture, what it means to be creative entrepreneurs, and collaborate on each other's project outlines through a design and thinking process.
 

Weekly Potluck Meetup

Last year's potluck meetups were intimate, dynamic and informative. The potluck established the groundwork for a creative community; an incubator where artists can collaborate and build their project. We used design thinking to create and develop the concept behind Business Model Canvas (BMC) 2.0
 

Business Model Canvass 2.0

The BMC 2.0 allowed artists to share their ideas, discuss how to better articulate and grow their idea to share information based on real-life experiences. As a group, we have discussed the new Instagram algorithm, sales strategies, and best practices for creating a following of individuals who would potentially buy their art. who’ll buy your art.
 

Mentorship

In 2020 we want to expand on this by bringing in mentors who can capitalize on the idea of workshops in real-time and share their expertise. We use the potluck meetups to expand on this idea by focusing some weeks on specific needs based on the community.

Shop – The Acrylic Paintings of Meighan West Explore Self & Feminism

The Acrylic Paintings of Meighan West Explore Self & Feminism

Who are you?

Meighan West. I am a woman trying to explore feminism and myself through the wonderful expression of painting.

 

What do you do?

Acrylic on canvas

 

Why did you get started?

I've painted since I was a little girl. It's how I express my curiosities.

 

Tell us about the 1st time you knew what you were doing was the way you wanted to approach your art.

I had a vision of my mural and when I finished that labor of love and pain I realized I needed to keep exploring feminism through this medium using the raw female form.

 

What are you working on right now?

A collection of varied female nudes, each pose expressing a different emotion. It's called "read my tits". So often women say read my lips because men are just looking at their bodies, with this I'm hoping people can understand what these women are saying just by looking at their bodies.

 

Describe your creative process.

I often get inspired by an image in my head that comes from whatever I'm experiencing either through my daily life, what I'm reading at the time or what I'm learning about.

 

Who is your art for? Why is it important?

My art is for feminists (male or female) who want to feel the expression of women

 

What is the hardest part about being an artist?

Finding your confidence. Every artist is different and can be considered "better", you have to believe that what you're producing is worth sharing.

 

If you could tell your younger self anything, what would it be and why?

You are an artist. It is worth something. As a child art was connected to my mother and I had a very strained relationship with her so I didn't see the value in being an artist. I hid from it for a long time to distance myself from her. I should have embraced my art and lived in it, through it, as I do now.

 

Why is art and creativity important for the community at large?

It brings beauty and self-expression to everyone. Even those who don't feel they can express themselves in artistic ways can feel connected and represented through other peoples art.

 

 

Have you had to deal with isolation, mental illness, and/or homelessness? What did you learn from your experience?

I have self-isolated. I grew up with a traumatized mother which made me feel like I couldn't connect with people because no one would understand me. I went through therapy and worked through a lot of my childhood issues which allowed me to let in the incredible people in my life and find ways to accept love and happiness. It's a long, maybe never-ending process but it's worth it be able to fully experience the beauty in your life.
