Philip Craig, artist

While reading the October 09 issue of Cdn House and Home magazine, I noticed in their article on redecorating an historic showhome in Toronto there was a painting hung above a fireplace that looked vaguely familiar. I may never have seen the painting before, so it was probably the style of the artist. Sure enough, the sidebar credited the painting to Philip Craig. He has his studio just off Beech Street in Little Italy.

If you visit his studio, the entrance is off the to left side of the building in an alleyway. The artist’s loft is everything a loft should be: wood floors, high ceilings, totally industrial look, skylights, modelling platform, paintings – some huge – all around the room leaning on the walls.
