Meet the Artists
From a young age Toronto based Megan Oldhues (b. 1997) has planted roots in the underground scene of graffiti and street art. Her unique experience with the off beat transient lifestyle enabled her to land under the wings of some of Canada’s best street artists. It was within this time she began to receive formal education and discover her love for oil painting and classical realism + impressionism. Today, Megan specializes in figurative and representational art drawing inspiration from the “rawness” of the human condition experienced much in her earlier life. She aims to resonate with audiences by telling compelling narratives and reflecting on universally relatable experiences through muralism and painting.
Benjamin Mitchley is an internationally successful South African fine artist, illustrator, animator and augmented reality artist born on January 1, 1967, in the Free State. He studied fine arts at Vaal University of Technology and Tshwane University of Technology from 1985 to 1987. Technology plays an essential role in his creative process. Augmented reality has made it possible to view his artwork differently. The introduction of AR with the Artivive app has allowed the viewer to use a mobile device to bring his artwork to life. This medium has led him on a new journey with exhibitions in collaboration with the Artivive company, bringing him international attention in Spain, Miami, New York, Canada, South Korea, Austria and Germany.
