Lani Burshtein is a Toronto-based artist and writer. Her visual art background is rooted in printmaking, book arts and artists' multiples, with a secondary focus on sculpture. Lani’s subject matter generates from stories she finds in history, novels, the media or the internet, which she uses as a jumping off point for artworks that reference multiple narratives and histories, finding unexpected inspiration by way of footnotes and tangents. Lani is exhibiting her collage series "Collé, Collate, Collect" at the Emerging Artist Gallery at NPCC.
