Katya Garipova

Artist member since 2018
Toronto, ON

Russian-born Katya Garipova is a Toronto-based artist and illustrator. After completing her BA in Graphic Arts from Winchester School of Art, UK, Katya moved to Toronto where she built her career in graphic design and advertising. In the last few years, she reignited her childhood passion for painting by publicly showing her acrylic & mixed media artwork for the first time in local galleries and shows in Toronto. She also loves to participate in Art Battles and charity art auctions.

Katya’s latest illustrative series ‘Millenimals’ features endearing animal characters that are inspired by her childhood love of Russian fairytale storybooks, as well as modern Canadian millennial food rituals, and day-to-day observations. In tandem to her playful illustrative style, Garipova also loves to experiment with expressive acrylic and ink techniques.

Today, Katya’s artistic practice is diverse; ranging from book illustrations to typographic chalk murals, ongoing gallery exhibitions and seasonal craft markets.
