Katherine Maginnis is pleased to announce its collaboration with Ken Gangbar Studio for this month’s Artist of the Month; introducing the Toronto-based studio’s professional art solutions and innovative sculptural works to Katherine Maginnis clients, available to commission exclusively through the new boutique online shop, curated by Katherine Maginnis and launching this April.
With humble origins in the city of Toronto 17 years ago, after graduating from Sheridan College’s School of Craft and Design, Ken Gangbar began his journey into the art industry with ceramics; primarily because of the material’s unique properties and versatile applications. Since then, Ken Gangbar Studio has branched out far beyond ceramics, continuously exploring the plethora of possibilities found within a range of mediums and materials from wood and steel, to glass, porcelain and composite resins.
Inspired by the cyclical patterns and intricate compositions in nature, Ken Gangbar’s installations experiment with abstract forms found in the organic. The result is a creative collision between the natural world and industrial environments. His works have been commissioned by private and corporate clients on an international scale, from Moscow and New York to Toronto and Kuala Lumpur. Some of his most notable sculptural installations and art solutions can be found in the world’s most prestigious hotels and restaurants, including the likes of St. Regis, Grand Hyatt, Four Seasons, Nobu, Fairmont, Radisson Blu, Marriott and more.
