Marc Adornato’s artwork is kind of like ‘Game of Thrones’ meets ‘American Pickers’, with a twist of Mad Men. He blends WW2 era gas masks, antlers, and vintage fur pelts, with antique art deco furniture, electronics, and century old reclaimed wood. His installations are an exploration of Canada’s past and present evolving identity, and a juxtaposition of the old and the new.

Adornato holds a Fine Arts degree from NSCAD University in Halifax, and lives and creates out of his 1400sqft studio in the National Capital region. Bragging rights include exhibits in The Canadian War Museum, The Bank of Canada’s Currency Museum, and the National Art Gallery of Canada for a one-night-stand.

Greyarea is a gallery space located in Hintonburg. The aim of the space is to show art that I (julian garner) want to be around, to inspire myself and my coworkers and create an atmosphere that we all look forward to being in every day as the gallery is connected to our workspace (Fivecents). Also, to expose people from the art side of things to the tattoo side and vice versa.
