Printmaker Guillermo Trejo first came on my radar about a month ago when the Council for the Arts in Ottawa announced the shortlists for their annual art awards, where he was named as a top nominee for the emerging artist prize along with visual artist Sarah Hatton and theatre director Brownwyn Stenberg.

This year the prize went to a very deserving Sarah Hatton (her work with dead bees from her hives is mindblowing, and her paintings of water are unreal), but Guillermo’s printmaking students and colleagues at the Ottawa School of Art are positive that their artist’s career won’t be mimicking Leo’s at the Oscar’s when it comes to future accolades.   When we met at the OSA print studio the afternoon after the awards ceremony Guillermo was relieved to have the anticipation over with, and happy to be assisting his students and testing out ideas for the latest evolution of the bold graphics he’s becoming known for.
