pHoTo+aRt—fine art photography—street+fine art photographer artist

pHoTo+aRt (photographic arts) street+fine art photography—Toronto photographer artist/street photographer/painter (photo artist) draws on fine art photography, street photography and photo journalism (called fotomodés) to produce photographic stills (contemporary art studies—artist renderings) to create oil paintings; and help bridge the gap between photography and art.

I take pictures to make paintings (oil on canvas).”

I’m a Montréal-born Torontonian artist (painter & sculptor) drawing on fine art photography, street photography and photo journalism (what I call fotomodés) to produce photographic stills to create oil paintings; and help bridge the gap between photography and art.

Greetings and salutations from Toronto Canada! my name is MeHi (my internet pen name); pronounced me-high; also known as [m]—the artist MeHi.

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.
