The C.O.A Gallery first opened its doors in May of 2014, offering a creative and playful atmosphere where urban and contemporary art forms converge. Its represented artists hail both from Canada and abroad and, although C.O.A counts a few ubiquitous names on its roster, it mostly focuses on showcasing emergent talent. Highly varied in both style and substance, every artist has one point in common: a creative and aesthetic singularity. These artists play around with established norms and challenge the public's understanding of them. In fact, the C.O.A acronym stands for Creators of Atypical Artworks (Créateurs d'Oeuvres Atypiques).
