Giuseppe Scarola - Artist of the Month

February’s Artist of the Month is Giuseppe Scarola, a Toronto-based visual artist. Scarola works in digital illustrations that are driven by his own curiosities of human nature; how people think, act, and connect with the world around them. With a background in architectural design, Scarola channels his experiences with composition into this unique style of illustrations. It is through these creative acts of drawing, painting, and designing that Scarloa is able to express his thoughts and emotions in ways that words cannot convey. Along with his own lived reality, Scarola aims to bring the experiences of his friends and family to life through the symbolism in his artwork.

His portraits are more than images on paper; they are love notes, confessionals, tantrums, and cries for justice. Scarola separates his series by what he calls ‘chapters,’ as each series has its own imperative part to play in the stories he is sharing. For this month we will be focusing on chapter ‘ULTRAVIOLET,’ a series that is visually influenced by the nightlife of Toronto and perpetual party culture. Thematically, the work sheds light on how adolescent developments, self-reflection, and how we perceive ideals of beauty.

Scarola’s illustrations are all digitally drawn, yet he is able to capture the texture of hand drawn elements flawlessly. The misty fog captured by a helicopters spotlight demonstrates how Scarola combines both the digital and analog styles.

Continuing Scarola’s series, he evidently introduces the cooler colours into his palette that make a strong calling to the title ‘ULTRAVIOLET.’ As the series evolves, it digs deeper into the critique and/or celebration of beauty and mind standards set by the world around us.

A theme that is often represented in ICC exhibits is identity and self-reflection, so naturally this piece caught our eye 🪞 The use of the mirror to create these inverted worlds of colour strike an interesting idea: is this person seeing themselves in a way they don’t recognize? Or perhaps in a way they idealize? Read below to read about Scarola’s interpretation of the work.

Sneak Peek at Scarola’s next series 𝘕𝘌𝘖𝘕 𝘋𝘙𝘌𝘈𝘔𝘚


Covered in neon colours and retro-futuristic ornamentation, this series explores Scarola’s personal love for film (specifically horror and thriller movies) and dissects them to find contemporary social issues that are presented on the screen. Filled with a more sinister seductive subject matter, 𝘕𝘌𝘖𝘕 𝘋𝘙𝘌𝘈𝘔𝘚 introduces concepts such as representation, stereotyping, body image, objectification, sex, religion, and power dynamics in relationships. Even though these themes are found in the films that inspire Scarola, it becomes increasingly more evident how real these issues are in current society.

This last piece was actually what caught our attention to bring Scarola on as February’s Artist of the Month. The vibrant colour, the ‘Pulp Fiction’ reminiscent haircut, and specifically this style of retro-futurism is what drew us in. There is also something so alluring about the contempt body language of this woman ahead of a dead body. Do you think she is the killer or the survivor?

We’d like to give a big thank you to Giuseppe for sharing your work with us all month. Seeing your practice grow in new ways has been rewarding and we look forward to seeing how you continue develop and evolve as an artist.
