Toner is a Calgary-based graffiti artist and large-scale muralist with almost two decades of experience working in both the public and private realms. His visual language spans from clean and vibrant typographic and abstract designs to highly detailed photorealistic representations of plants and animals.
With an artistic background in urban art and a professional background in architecture, Toner’s skill set allows him to marry a unique creative approach with detailed planning and execution on any project.
I believe my creative expression is at its best when I incorporate a series of unique and disparate styles; though I include elements of meaning that are important to me, the work is inclusive, and is open for the viewer’s interpretation. It is a mixture of various approaches not bound by traditional stylistic principles. It’s an attempt to reconcile my own unique take on a broad range of topics, while simultaneously connecting with new audiences. My art is iterative in nature, yet it is part of the same journey and a constant pursuit of bettering myself as an artist and as a person.
