José-Gabriel presents; Studio32.ca, An all encompassing creative experimental endeavor brought to you by the founder, curator and creator of Funktion Gallery, Bloor-By-The-Park’s ComeUnity Festival and The GS Party series.
In January of 2009, José-Gabriel, along with Members of The Faceless Few Collective opened up Funktion Gallery on Bloor Street just east of Lansdowne, in the city’s west end Bloordale neighborhood. For more than a year, Funktion hosted numerous art exhibitions, giving several local artists the opportunity to showcase their work to a new demographic. The Gallery crew provided musical and visual entertainment at countless public and private events throughout Ontario in the form of live painting, disc jockeying and visual design. Through Funktion Gallery, José-Gabriel curated many commissioned murals for businesses, schools and local community associations, as well as taught mural classes, hosted workshops and delivered seminars on youth arts and culture.
In providing these services and holding these events, Funktion Gallery has had a positive impact in a community building capacity in Toronto and beyond. Since the closing of Funktion’s storefront location in March of 2010, José-Gabriel decided to continue in the pursuit of creative opportunity, expansion and experience. To carry on the spirit of Funktion Gallery on a more personal Level
