Alarm Call

Oleh Sirant is a Toronto artist specializing in staged, large-scale digital photography, with a focus on contemporary portraiture.  His digital images are printed on canvas with archival ink.

After the Flood

Sirant explores contemporary issues such as the aftermath of trauma, usually in highly stylized, figurative narratives which instantly tell a story.
