Michael Cho: Alleys & Urban Landscapes

Award winning artist and illustrator Michael Cho has been painting the back alleys and inconspicuous locations around his Toronto home since 2006. Earlier this year these works were collected and published into his new book: Back Alleys and Urban Landscapes (Montréal: Drawn & Quarterly, 2012).  He’s on exhibit at the Gallery at 129 Ossington in Toronto next month.

Born in Seoul, South Korea, Michael Cho immigrated to Canada at the age of 6, and continued his lifelong practice of drawing on any surface he could find.  A graduate of the Ontario College of Art, Cho divides his time between freelancing on illustration assignments and drawing comics (preferably ones he writes himself).   See Michael Cho’s website, here.
