Rita Hisar: Live In Colour

Social Art Gallery Cafe

Rita Hisar, Elephant: The Skin I Am In

Urban/Pop Art Contemporary Artist

April 1 – May 30, 2023
Reception: Thursday May 11, 6-8 pm
Social Art Gallery Café
Dundas Street, Across from Art Gallery of Ontario

Working only with a palette knife and acrylic paint, contemporary artist Rita Hisar creates bold and vibrant portraits, still life and wildlife paintings that come alive with colour and texture. Inspired by Urban/Pop Art, as well as the Fauvist and Expressionist Movements, her paintings exude a contrasting raw edge with playful bright colours. She elevates the ordinary – such as a cherry-into an extraordinary joyful painting, bursting with colour.

“I am always trying to capture the fragile Beauty of the moment- a smile, an ice cream cone, a cherry-everything has an intrinsic beauty to it, and it’s transitory nature makes it more valuable”.

Join us on May 11 between 6-8 pm for the Opening Reception and meet the Artist.
