Darren Rigo is a Toronto-based artist who creates work inspired by the absurdity in everyday life. His practice reacts to location as a source of inspiration while considering the endlessly evolving nature of photography. He received a BFA from OCAD University where he majored in photography and recently completed residencies at AIAV (Japan), Leveld Kunstnartun (Norway), and AIRY (Japan). His work has also been included in the collections of the Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton and the Kiyosato Museum of Photographic Arts in Japan. Local public installations of his work have been commissioned by SickKids Hospital, Daniels Corporation and Plazacorp Investments.
