Gloria Blatt, a graduate of the prestigious Communications and Design program at the Ontario College of Art (OCAD), is an accomplished and highly regarded abstract artist. Born in Toronto, Canada, she is inspired by the dynamic and fast paced city that has provided a backdrop for many of her pieces. Her style has evolved over the years into abstracts that are colourful, textured, and dramatically vibrant.
Gloria is able to express incredible movement and energy on canvas, giving life to the most extraordinarily created natural and urban settings. Aside from the inspiration she gains from her own city and travels, Gloria’s style of art speaks to her favourite artists: Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Rothko, Haring and Bush.
Behind the scenes of each one of Gloria’s paintings is her talent for choosing and mixing colours, textures, and different types of paint (acrylic, oil, spray paint, enamels) so that each canvas is truly unique. Buyers and collectors of her work admire the bold colours and free flowing designs that have come to represent Gloria’s signature style.
In the early 2000s, Gloria jumped on the opportunity to gain international exposure by turning to social media marketing and, for the past 15 years, has achieved great success focusing on direct-to-consumer sales of her artwork. Gloria is passionate about re-connecting with her community, and is now displaying her artwork in local galleries.
