Working out of Golden Iron in downtown Toronto, Calvin Truong specializes in black and grey realism.
Calvin centres his designs around the balance and contrasting of shadows; his work is often composed of natural elements ranging from wildlife to forestry and abstract shapes. His art career started off with oil paintings and slowly branched into VFX design. He then went on to pursue his love for tattooing shortly after. Calvin studied at OCAD University as well as Humber College. Regardless of the diplomas or certificates received, Calvin’s philosophy has always remained the same:
“Never allow yourself to plateau in a singular style; improve every day to the best of your ability.”
With the amount of artists in the industry, Calvin explains that there should never be a reason to get too comfortable.
