Hana Elmasry

Artist member since 2019
Mississauga & Toronto , Ontario

Hana Elmisry is a painter, educator and counsellor. Hana's praxis engages with concepts in cognitive science and visual art. Her work seeks to guide its audience to their own conclusions by grounding them in a relationship between the artwork and their own perceptions. As an educator, she facilitates agency and the capacity for reflection through mark making and expression. She challenges built concepts by asking her audience and her clients to be mindful and reconsider categorized perceptions.

She has worked alongside United Nations, CAMH, Power Plant Contemporary Gallery and various shelters to empower children, youth and adults.

Hana’s program dives into the technical and conceptual aspects of mark-making, presenting a variety of experimental painting techniques while engaging participants in discussions about the self, perception, authenticity, and autonomy.

Hana uses various materials and mediums to help express and facilitate expression. Each piece emotes instead of represents.
