Vladimir Kato grew up in the urban environment of Yugoslavia in the 1980′s, influenced by the anarchy, graffiti and punks that inhabited his city and surroundings. Much of his imagery comes from comic and pop artists of the time. After moving to Canada, he gained an education from The Interpretive Illustration and Classical Animation Programs at the Sheridan College of Art and Design . He is now an artist, illustrator, and cartoonist for several recognized magazines and clothing companies. His new show examining wild animals, entitled “Wilderness,” opens June 4th at the Show & Tell Gallery in Toronto, Canada.

“Smile On Your Brother” Art Show


The idea behind “Smile On Your Brother” is to inspire people to think about their first skateboard and what it meant to them. For many skaters, this still represents a pivotal moment in their lives, with every last little detail, fresh in their minds. Bringing together contemporary artists both in, and affected by the skateboard industry to help raise funds to go towards the first goal of Contributor which is to donate 100 skateboards to disadvantaged youth across Canada in 2009/2010. The show will travel throughout Canada, starting in Vancouver and ending in Quebec City.

There’s some really awesome artists participating in the show, you can check them out here on the artists page, including myself (though excluded from that “awesome artists” list- its the one on the 6th column and 5 rows down). In accordance with the physical tour itself, “Smile On Your Brother” is also holding an online auction ending October 25th 2009. You can get a nice picture of how many skateboards there were contributed- take a look and get some personally customized boards that also benefit charity- win win! I put some of my personal favorites after the jump.
