Painted Path

CURTIA WRIGHT

Curtia Wright is a multidisciplinary artist, muralist, and educator born in Scarborough. She received her BFA at OCAD in the Drawing and Painting program in 2015. Her artwork re-imagines reality using elements of fantasy and surrealism. She uses warm, energetic and bold colour to brighten environments. Her narratives focus on telling stories of Black peoples of the African diaspora, primarily speaking about her own heritage as a Jamaican-Canadian. Wright’s work is often autobiographical and inspired by pop-culture, Caribbean mythology & folklore. In her piece for the Painted Path, Curtia honours Michie Mee, a local icon and pioneer of what the world has come to love and cherish: Toronto Hip Hop.
