Brendon McNaughton (b. 1990, Newmarket, ON) is a multidisciplinary artist residing in Toronto, Canada. He often travels between California, New York, and Italy. McNaughton has practiced in a studio collective since the age of eight. He went on to receive a B.F.A. with honors from York University and began exhibiting his work in 2010. Since then his sculptures have been presented internationally, with major exhibitions at Corkin Gallery, and recently showing at the Palazzo Loredan in Venice, Italy during the 57th Biennale. McNaughton’s work has attracted wide public attention. His pieces are found in private and public collections across the globe. The entrepreneurial studio as a start-up process he adopts has developed into a global production network, consisting of creative technologies ranging from 3D printers to large scale carving robots. McNaughton is the founder of a high-tech studio created for the marketing and production of his artwork.
“Brendon McNaughton is an up-and-coming transnational and transdisciplinary artist who bridges the gap between art, science and technology in a very daring and innovative way. He is a promising product of the third millennium. He capitalizes on the value of artistic heritage from the ancient Greeks to the masters of the 20th and 21st centuries, while constantly experimenting in the latest mediums of expression to create his own artistic vision.”
