Vladimir Kato's 'Don't Fight the Feeling' exhibition at the Show & Tell Gallery showcases the best of the artist's 80's-influenced pop surrealism.
Kato's artistic career began at the age of 5 at his father’s encouragement. As a youth in Yugoslavia he was constantly surrounded by punks, anarchy symbols and political and vulgar graffiti. Kato immigrated to Canada in 1993, where he frequently moved around and experienced cultures from all walks of life.
Ultimately, Vladimir Kato found his place in graffiti and street art, where he used the urban environment as his personal canvas. After receiving formal training from Sheridan College in Toronto, he went on to do illustrative design work for several clothing companies and magazines. Kato now focuses his talents on animation while working as a full-time concept and background artist.
