Instructor: Alisson Escobar Born in Bogotá, Colombia.
Alisson is a transmedia artist + art worker living and operating in Toronto, Canada. Their work explores the internal drives and external influences that shape identity as a Colombian first-generation immigrant in North America. Escobar’s work exists in the digital wilderness, a place where finishes, effects, surfaces, and algorithms demonstrate the complexity of the medium. Their work is concerned with the power of images, technology and the degree to which we are shaped by consumer capitalist culture and mass media.
Through their work, they attempt to engage and interact with the public by creating, facilitating or collaborating in shared experiences. They are a part of the digital art collective Tough Guy Mountain and runs The Brandscape, an artist studio and accessible digital art production incubator for shooting and creation of new work for video, new media and virtual reality.
They hold a BFA with an honorable mention from the Ontario College of Art and Design University.
