Fantastic Favourites: Craig Brumwell, Frédérick Wolfe, Ronan Boyle
Let’s take a look at some of our favourite works from three different artists. Working in a range of very different styles and media, Craig, Frédérick, and Ronan have built equally enthralling artistic portfolios.
Craig Brumwell is a Canadian artist who has worked mainly in the media of charcoal drawing and sculptural installation, combining these two disciplines to explore the material nature of a railroad, and the tension between nature and the man-made. I’m interested to see more of what Craig has worked on in recent years!

Ronan Boyle was born in Northern Ireland and came to Canada in the 1970s. In his current artistic practice, Ronan works in a style that draws from pop-culture and street art influences, combining media and aesthetics to create a unique and expressive figurative art style.
