Torontonian—Mihály from Montréal, Ontario, Canada.
Greetings and salutations from Toronto Canada! my name is MeHi (my internet pen name); pronounced me-high; also known as [m]—the artist MeHi.
I’m a Montréal-born Torontonian artist (painter/sculptor) drawing on fine art photography, street photography and photojournalism (I’ve termed fotomodés) to produce photographic stills to create oil paintings; and help bridge the gap between photography and art.
The aim of my projects (assignments & stories) is to gather a collection of photographic stills (art studies—artist renderings if you like) preparatory to printing on canvas; with brush stokes of paint layered on top, a steadfast aim to deliver my vision; the way I see things in my mind—a snapshot; that reflects who I am, of how I see the world and live my life.
As of late; photography invaded me passionately—I love taking spontaneous, artful shots; full of passion, feeling and fun—of beautiful things; capturing reality with a good story behind it.
