Exclusively at Twist Gallery - The Northside Series by Patrick Skals

Hey Toronto! Remember when the Raptors made basketball history in the 6ix smashing records, defying expectations and winning it all!? We do too. ☺️ 🏀 🎨

And we are thrilled to share with you an exclusive series created by Patrick Skals.

The Northside Series

“The limited-edition series celebrates the beautiful mayhem and unadulterated jubilation that ensued following the Toronto Raptors odds-defying championship.


“Inspired by graffiti that embroiders the city streets, by the introspective rawness of Jean-Michel Basquiat and the history-making ‘Northside’ Raptors – the series is loud, energetic and unapologetic


“The mixed media paintings embody the city and country’s’ collective passion using abstract symbolism, emotionally charged colours and urban-inspired composition. It is meant to be conceptual versus a literal interpretation of the championship.”
