  • WTA 2019 – (dys)Placed

    (dys)Placed: Exploration of Identity How are students navigating perceptions of their identity in an ever-shifting world? This year’s Walk the Art exhibition theme addresses how identities are placed and displaced, and how students are constantly exploring who they are in shifting spaces. The exhibition provides an opportunity for students to delve deeper into how geography, […]

  • WTA 2018 – (un)Settle

    What does it mean to be “Canadian”? The answer is not the same for everyone. By design this simple question is actually very difficult to answer so as to perpetuate a collective amnesia of the history of Canada. As Settler people’s, we often attempt to answer this question without reconciling our relationship with the land, […]

    The Binary Star System Colony Acrylic Painting, 2017 Due to the increasingly popular scientific topic of colonization on planets and the upcoming Mars colony, I have become convinced that this idea and future technological advancements will lead to colonies on not only Mars, but other planets, even those situated billions of light years away. I decided […]

  • Zohaib Vehra

    Architect’s Carousel Animated Gif, 2017 This work explores the idea of creation and destruction.  In cities like Toronto for example, with the rapid pace of gentrification, it is hard to appreciate the culture and history of a community and its architecture as buildings are created and torn down so quickly .   Buildings are essential to […]

    Fragile Man Magazine Collage, 2017 Without the ability to actualize an idea or concept, art would not exist. My work juxtaposes clippings from magazines with an album cover. In this specific art work I only limited myself to one medium which was magazine clippings. In this art piece I created an image of a man made […]

The animals in the background have a fading quality to them, […]

  • Tammy Guo

    Untitled Acrylic painting, 2017 The goal for this piece is to capture the elements that accompany a city lifestyle and urban development.  The glowing colours of the city background which depicts life and possibility contrasts with the girl who stands alone in the foreground.  She looks onto the city as if she’s longing, or expecting something […]

  • Asad Manzoor

    untitled Digital print, 2016 The intention of this mural is to showcase the combination of creative and academic thinking that is cultivated at Stephen Lewis Secondary School. The vibrant colours and organic forms in the mural represent the creative, “right-brain” side of the student; the rigid shapes that create the construction site in the head, and […]

  • Tamanna Rudra

    Global Warning Acrylic on Stretched Canvas, 2016 The purpose of this piece is for the viewer to perceive a reflection of our world through a different lens, and to understand how we impact the world we live in. The message I would like to get across through my artwork is that we, as humans, are responsible […]
