Raquel Da Silva

Artist member since 2018
Toronto, Ontario

Raquel Da Silva is a Toronto based artist, working primarily with painting and design. Having completed her BFA in Painting and Furniture Design at OCADU, Raquel’s work is focused on forming a connection between the digital and analog, and how 2 and 3-dimensional forms and shapes work together to create an environment. She has collaborated with clients such as Nike, Adidas Original, and Reebok, and has recently completed a one-year studio residency at the Museum of Contemporary Art Toronto.

My current work is an exploration of how 2 and 3-dimensional forms and shapes work together to create an environment. I use unconventional characters and shapes as the representational figures of our environments, and how they can coexist with one another in one space.
