by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Vancouver-based artist Ryan Heshka pays homage to his homeland in “Romance of Canada,” his solo exhibition showing at Antonio Colombo Arte Contemporanea in Milan, Italy on March 26 through May 23. For each painting in the show, Heshka gives Canadian landmarks and cultural symbols a sci-fi twist, creating postcard images set in his surreal, pulp novel-inspired world. His signature, amazonian pin-up girl characters take charge, causing mischief and ruling over the land through a combination of force, cunning, and sexuality.
