Blair Chivers

Blair Chivers is a Canadian artist based in Toronto. His works are the result of an exploration in ways to democratize the art world, and an investigation of the power of the creative mind. With a focus on text throughout his pieces, Chivers’ practice takes inspiration from the worlds of fashion, music, and film to convey a message. As the founder of Free The Art World, Chivers aims to push new ways of approaching visual art, and to emphasize a need to transform dated and exclusionary attitudes that surround art production and pricing. Chivers has created installations and interactive performances on the subject in prominent institutions worldwide, prompting viewers to stimulate new ideas and broader perspectives while engaging with his work.
