Callen Schaub is an abstract artist working with paint, natural forces, and machines in an innovative way to produce bold and thought-provoking contemporary artworks. With a growing performative practice, Schaub often creates his paintings live at notable events and venues such as the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, Nathan Phillips Square during Nuit Blanche, the Field Trip Music and Arts Festival at Fort York, Honest Ed’s, and Soho House. Schaub has worked with various galleries across Canada including Galerie Youn in Montreal, Winsor Gallery in Vancouver, as well as Project Gallery, OnlyOneGallery, and the Black Cat Gallery in Toronto. Schaub graduated from OCAD University in 2012.

Taking inspiration from positivity expressed online, and responding artistically to the experience of being trolled, these works from Schaub’s latest exhibition Energy illustrate the emotional impact of words, and encourage audiences to use words as a tool of empowerment. Callen is best known for his inventive painting techniques using spin machines, swinging troughs, and pendulums in live performances.

Schaub lives and works in Toronto, Ontario.
