Cameron McKay

Cameron McKay might have been an architect but city planners doubted his designs were up to code. The art world has been much more accommodating to his harebrained blueprints. McKay makes art inspired by urban spaces in transition. Glass, cedar, concrete and intricate scaffolding mix with a playful use of colour in his works. His pieces blur the line between sculpture and painting, and he has fun playing with the boundaries of each medium. His goal is to create art that is troublingly fussy and precise in execution, but doesn’t feel laboured. McKay (b. 1983) is a Canadian artist who lives and works in Saskatoon. He has exhibited his work throughout Saskatchewan since completing a BFA at the University of Saskatchewan in 2006. His works can be found in private collections across Canada.
