Featuring Jesjit Gill's recent poster and wallpaper work along with pieces resulting from the collaborative efforts of the participants from the Square One Youth Centre and the artist.

Currently studying at the Ontario College of Art and Design, Jesjit Gill began screen printing a little over five years ago. He began by making t-shirts but, was exposed to the potential of print through his appreciation of independent music. In screen-printing Gill satisfies a need to become a machine and create large quantities of artwork while expressing himself in the most accessible of mediums, the poster. Originally from Brampton, Ontario, the artist now calls Toronto his home.
