Kal Honey (b 1966) was creative and obsessively detail-oriented from an early age: drawing, building models, embroidery, photography. After attending Northern Secondary School’s specialized art program in Toronto, Kal went on to become an award-winning graduate of the Ontario College of Art.
After a 2009 travel sabbatical from his 20-year graphic design career, Kal re-focussed his career on art and art instruction.
Often bold (but sometimes subtle), Kal's work in painting, graphics and collage is informed by his design sensitivity and training, his love of contrasts, and his penchant for text, wit and wordplay.
Recent exhibitions include: DeFacto Gallery, Hamilton; Red Head Gallery, Otto Art, Queen West Art Crawl, Art Square Gallery, and RAW, Toronto. In 2017 Kal was awarded an Ontario Arts Council grant for the creation of new work.
As an instructor, Kal teaches regularly at Neilson Park Creative Centre and Visual Arts Mississauga, as well as in Fleming College’s diploma, certificate and summer programs. He also leads workshops, gives lectures and juries exhibitions throughout Southern Ontario.
When not in the studio or classroom, Kal can often be found in the gym or out riding one of his beloved bicycles…
