In 2011 Robert Canali (b.1988) graduated from York University in Toronto, Canada, where he received his BFA in photography. The Canadian born artist is currently based in San Francisco, California. Canali’s work explores the mystery and beauty of the photographic medium, a study in themes like permanence, fragility, and individual perception.
His work inspires questions more than it reveals answers, as he pushes the bounds of this medium. Canali’s concepts are realized as photographs, sculptures, installations, and books. Often disparate in appearance, ranging from the cosmic, the psychedelic, and the nostalgic, his work offers a complex query about time, recollection, and the rapid advancement of modern life.
