Visiting Artist Residency
Visiting Artist Residency Recipient
Rafa Santos’ work fragments both real and imaginary moments in Caribbean and Mediterranean history with artistic liberty. They address the subject of identity with both a private and a public voice at once. Post-minimalist and undisciplinary in their aesthetic, Santos strives to embed something irrational in the seemingly decipherable composition of their work.
Rafa’s work has been exhibited as part of the AIR Vallauris residency and the Celine Bureau residency, as well as at Concordia University’s FOFA Gallery.
Born in Toronto, raised in Ottawa, of Afro-Dominican and Italo-Canadian descent, Rafa’s artistry is currently based in Montreal.
