About

The brainchild of an interior designer and an art dealer, Duran Mashaal Gallery came to fruition after directors Sarah Mashaal and Andres Duran felt that there was a large void in Canada for a contemporary art gallery whose primary focus is not only on Canadian emerging artists, but as well as international emerging and mid-career artists.
We will be working closely with our artists to exhibit their works in various art fairs throughout North America, as well as local museums and national museums, collections and organizations. We are equally committed to providing our clients exposure to new and unique works of art from around the world.

Exhibiting Artists

  • Jen Mann  (+)

    Biography : Mann’s body of work looks at identity, self, and how we understand others. Each piece is an existential exploration into reality, depicted in large hyper realistic oil paintings. Her newest body of work is comprised of self-portraits exploring the creation of identity, and how we understand ourselves through that lens. We are always changing, and basing who we are on our memories of ourselves. Mann explores the realness of identity, and its relation to our culture and the society we live in now. In the society of "me", where we document ourselves like celebrities and share our lives online for everyone, the self is a prevalent, and important topic to our generation. Our identities are curated like our online profiles to reflect only the parts of ourselves we chose to keep alive. Who am I? Who are you? What does my life mean? Why am I alive? Mann's work aims to address these very illusive questions, and explore, but not necessarily answer all of them.

  • Adriana Oliver  (+)

    Biography : Adriana Oliver, b. 1990, is a contemporary figurative artist from Barcelona, currently living and working in Los Angeles. Her work is best known for bold, colorful paintings rooted in the realm of Pop Art, but with an eye for minimalist abstraction and a sense of immediacy and movement influenced by her early training as a photographer. Oliver adds a feminist perspective to the Pop Art genre, exploring gender roles and stereotypes by breaking down symbols into minimal, neutral forms that can be observed and reflected in new ways. Oliver's work has been exhibited in Spain, Italy, London, Swizerland and Los Angeles and reviewed in publications including Avui and Popdam Magazine.

  • Ben Thomas  (+)

    Biography : Ben Thomas is a photographer and visual artist born in Adelaide, now living in Melbourne, Australia Ben's work has centered around the cities and urban spaces that we live in. His "Cityshrinker" series (2007) was internationally acclaimed and considered to be one of the pioneering projects exploring the now popular tilt-shift technique. Ben's study of urban spaces continued with "Accession" (2012) utilising mirror and kaleidoscopic techniques to highlight how repeating patterns and objects act as the basis of our our urban surroundings. Most recently Ben has developed his latest series "Chroma" (2015) and "Chroma II (2016), a further deconstruction of cities and urban areas with a primary focus of the use of colour and flatness that poses questions of how society defines the places in which we live. Ben has recently completed campaigns/assignments for The New Yorker Magazine, Sony, Cake, Singapore Airlines, Penguin Books and Chronicle Books.

  • Harley Valentine  (+)

    Biography : Harley Valentine explores the intersection of modern technology, architecture, performance and sculpture, creating contemporary narratives in monumental works and immersive installations. Valentine won the prestigious Sony Centre for The Performing arts public art bid at the age of 28, his Dream Ballet installation would take 5 years to realize and now stands as a homage to The National Ballet of Canada in downtown Toronto. Valentine often invites the role of performance, film and photography in the creation and presentation of his works, as seen in his 2014 short video project, "The Dance of The Dove", featuring a stop motion collage of a Canadian ballerina dancing around Valentine “Dove” sculpture. Valentine employs 3D modelling and printing in the creation of his monumental works, developing sophisticated plastic maquettes, which Valentine considers as artworks themselves. This style of working from model to monument is profiled in the video From Model to Monument. His sculptures and photo-sculptural works focus on the theme of collapse and the rebirth of civilizations, while questioning the constructs of a glorious, unattainable past.
