STEPANIE AQUINO

I have always found nature to be a great form of escapism and relief from everyday stress. That is why it tends to be a common muse in my artwork. I want my creations to be visually relaxing for me to make and others to view. I have always enjoyed learning about Frida Kahlo and how she used the natural world and her experiences to shape her work. I am self taught and have worked with a variety of mediums; acrylic paint , graphite pencils and digital art (as of lately) being my favourites. I have resided in Scarborough from my early teen years until now , my twenties, and am beginning to share my work with the community.

JEAN PAUL

Trinidadian-born, Brooklyn raised, and current resident of Toronto, comedian Jean Paul has always had an innate sense of humour. Maybe it’s because of his curious nature; maybe it’s because of his light-hearted view on life. Whatever the reason, Jean knew at an early age that a career in comedy was right for him. Since then, Jean has traveled extensively across Canada, the U.S., the Caribbean, South Africa and the U.K., performing at such legendary venues as the Apollo in New York, the Comedy Store in London, and at Place des Arts in Montreal. No stranger to the festival circuit, Jean has performed at Just For Laughs, Halifax and Winnipeg comedy Festivals and among other credits has written for and toured with Russell Peters.

Jean has also been nominated for several prestigious awards, including the Tim Sims’ Award for up-and-coming comedians, and a Gemini Award for Best Writing in a Comedy Series.

He has also proven his talent in on TV and film. He has conquered television as a correspondent on Phat TV, portrayed a wide assortment of characters in the CBC special Thick and Thin, and appeared multiple times as a guest on the CBC’s Strombo Show and on CTV’s A Russell Peters Christmas Special. He also played the popular Fluff E the Hip-Hop Bunny, on the Comedy Network’s Buzz Show, and is featured in Home Again and A Universal Language.

“Savage wit and spontaneous combustion combine into an explosive comedic barrage. This cat is fearless. In terms of any kind of act, he works without a net. He is so freewheeling, it’s almost psychedelic.” – Daryl Jung, NOW Magazine, Toronto
