Visual Art – Toronto, ONT

Marissa Bishop coined herself “Improv Artist.” The work reveals itself to her as it’s being created. She loves to concoct and invent original work. Concepts also occur by observing life on her walks in the city, hikes in the forest or on her subway commutes. From the bark of a tree, a pattern on wallpaper to clouds in the sky, she sees faces in almost anything.   This imaginative eye is the driving force behind her character pieces making it her mission to endlessly create. She really likes working quickly to get to the next idea. She’s been drawing her whole life and is now ready for the world to see! Her style is predominantly abstract with a playful, sometimes surrealist, twist. Picasso, Hofmann, Bellmer and Dali have been unconscious influences over the years. But it was her mother’s eye that shaped her to the contemporary artist she is today. Sharpies, ink pens, acrylic paints and digital canvases are her main mediums of choice.
