Cube Works Gallery in the District

Discovering the #Toronto Historic Distillery District is something that takes time to explore with all the nooks and crannies of the exciting neighbourhood. Galleries and retail go brick to brick against bars and restaurants for your attention and to satisfy your cravings. Cube Works Gallery at 17 Trinity Street is just down from the main public square (You know the one with the big egg beater sculpture?) and the shop is chock full of items with 'a unique twist on modern art'.
Cube Works is named for the Rubik's cubes used in much of their art, especially the World record breaking 85,794 cubes used in the recent mosaic 'Skyline of Macau, China'  which measures over 13 feet high and over 200 feet wide. Their 'Hand of God' creation shown in the 2010 Nuit Blanche all night art event used over 12,000 cubes. Many stars also have cube portraits: Twiggy, Audrey Hepbrun and Andy Warhol to name a few.
Also interesting is the Crayola Crayon production of Popeye with over 1,000 crayons used in the work and they promise more to come. Randy Cooper has a series of human figures made from wire mesh available for sale.
The gallery highlights both local and international artists every month and in July abstract artist Lloyd Arbour will have some of his mixed media work will be displayed. So drop by and check it out. See more art after the jump.

I can't even solve the square, coloured cubes - let alone make art out of them!
