Find Trueman's tent in McIntyre Park.
Trueman Macdonald is a self-taught artist originally from Northern Ontario. Over the last several years Trueman’s work has been seen at many community art walk events in and around the Edmonton area. His work stands out because of his simplistic techniques, limited colour palette and subject matter. Best known for his power line paintings, his subject matter to date includes traffic signs, wind turbines, landscapes and a re-occurring exploration of imagery from the West Indies. All of his canvases have been handmade using waste lumber from construction sites. He uses the lumber to make canvas stretcher bars and then stretches the canvas over the frame resulting in a painting completely crafted by the artist.
This summer Trueman will be showing some of his favourite works along with his new series the Barbados Collection.
