Online Exclusive Chapbook:
JAMIYLA LOWE is a Black Toronto based illustrative artist with a concentration on drawing and screen printing. Her works include self-published books, sculpture, and animation. She has exhibited her work in galleries and at small-press fairs in Canada and the US. Her work primarily focuses on multiples in the form of screen-printed textile and paper works, printed apparel, and self-published books. Her newest release, an illustrated book called As You Wish focuses on the gaps between fantasy and reality, a humorous look at living in a constant state of anticipation of the things we think we want. The environments her characters typically inhabit are hypnotically uncomfortable domestic spaces, the places where we seek comfort the most. She currently lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
