Canadian Abstract Artists You Need To Know

*Last updated November 2021

Here at Shop Local CANADA, we absolutely love discovering new Canadian artists and we especially love abstract art. We love the colours, the textures, the opportunity to interpret each piece individually. We love how abstract art can make you feel and how it can change the entire energy of a space. As Damali Ayo says, “Art should make you think and feel. It doesn’t have to match your couch”. We couldn’t agree more. 

We recently discovered the following Canadian abstract artists and are excited to share them with you. Each of the following artists has their own style, inspiration and preferred medium and they’re all leaving their mark in their own unique way. We hope you enjoy this collection of Canadian abstract artists as much as we do and maybe even discover a new piece of art that brings you joy.
