Kirsten McCrea draws obsessively, adores adornment, makes art affordable, and collaborates often. She honed her drawing skills in Montreal’s bustling collaborative art scene, making large scale murals alongside dozens of artists, occasionally indoors but often in the city streets. She now lives in Toronto, where she paints, draws, prints, & publishes. In 2009 she founded the affordable art subscription Papirmass, which has mailed over 50,000 art prints around the world for less than the cost of lunch.
Named a Top-30-Under-30 artist by Blouin Artinfo, her work has exhibited in Toronto’s AGO, Montreal’s Musée des Beaux Arts, and many other galleries, and has appeared on the Today Show and GIRLS, and in The Globe and Mail, Canadian Art, The National Post, and BUST Magazine.
