User Bio

Brendan George Ko is a visual storyteller that works in photography, video, installation, text, and sound. Born in Toronto and raised in New Mexico and Texas, he currently resides Toronto, and calls the Hawai’ian island, Maui, his second home. His work is about conveying a sense of experience through storytelling and describes the image as supplementary to the story it represents. In 2010, Ko received his BFA from Ontario College of Art & Design where he majored in photography, and in addition he practiced sculpture and curation. During his time in the Masters in Visual Arts programme at the University of Toronto his practice shifted into video and sound with the guidance of Kim Tomczak. Ko’s work has been included in such events as The Magenta Foundation’s annual photography exhibition and publication, Flash Forward, the juried exhibition Hey! Hot Shot by Jen Bekman in New York City, and in numerous auctions such as ACT’s Snap! Live Auction, Buddies in Bad Times' Art Attack Auction, and Youthline’s Line Art Auction. In addition he has been commissioned by The Hospital for SickKids and the Harbourfront Centre.
