Canadian Artist Brandy Saturley – The Voice of Canadian Pop Realism
Brandy Saturley is an award-winning Canadian painter, arts advocate, creator of the People of Canada Portrait Project, and tireless collaborator.
Known as the painter of ‘Pop Canadianisms’, Saturley has spent the past two decades of her art career painting and writing on themes related to Canadian popular culture, symbolism, and the figure in the landscape. The artist employs the use of stereotypical and familiar symbols of Canadiana to lure the viewer into discovering her underlying narratives. These symbolic narratives are influenced by the artists’ travels, photography and writing.
