Sarah Joncas, an artist from Toronto, Canada, was born in 1986 and graduated with a BFA from Ontario College of Art and Design. Sarah has been displaying and selling her art since she was seventeen and remarkably plays around with themes revolving around female archetypes like the damsel in distress and femme fatale in her art. Fish, hearts, cityscapes and most obviously, solo female figures are some of the main motifs prominent in Sarah’s works.
“I’ve always seen art as a solace, somewhere I can quietly explore my personal views on the world and get inspired by what’s around me, and even as a therapy to issues that bother me or I feel the need to get out. I tend to paint a more internal world with my work, focusing on human struggle, identity, and fantasy over say, more political or outward themes”, the young and budding artist tells us.
Friday Kahlo, Viner, Edward Hopper, and Ralph Steadman are some of the artists that inspire Sarah. A collection of Sarah’s exceptional works can be seen below.
