Katie Pretti

Pretti’s large scale works on canvas and paper challenge the distinction of abstraction and figuration.

 

A graduate of OCAD University, Pretti has held studios in Los Angeles, Buenos Aires, and Brooklyn, and has been artist-in-residence at COME (Buenos Aires), Ctrllab (Montreal), The White House (Toronto), and Spark Box Studios (Picton, Ontario). Her book of drawings, Sonority of Words, was launched in Toronto by Art Metropole and featured at the 2007 NYC Art Book Fair. The book is in the collection of the Library and Archives of the National Gallery of Canada. Pretti’s works are featured in the collections of SoHo House, TD Canada Trust, and Femmarte. She has been profiled in publications such as Carte Blanche Volume 2: Painting, ArtSync, ArtSlant, Magenta Magazine Online, Elle Canada, Fashion Magazine, Canadian House and Home, and Inside Entertainment.
