Toronto based artist, Michel Dauda, has been honing his skills in mixed media and digital art for the past several years. Originally a fine artist turned fashion photographer, Dauda blended his West African and Jamaican roots with 25 years of design experience, bringing about a perfect marriage of his two passions. 

Dauda’s evolution into mixed-media paintings and portraits has allowed him to introduce another element to this union and extend the range of his talent even further. His use of tribal figures, bold shapes and design allows Dauda to challenge the boundaries of people, and culture and how they coexist – utilizing colour to tell canvas stories, which explore the depths of relationships and composition.
