|Comprised of members Nicholas Aoki, G. Stephen Appleby-Barr, Christopher Buchan, and Lauchie Reid, Team Macho occupies a large studio in Toronto, where their collective efforts are focused on developing an art-making practice that spans the worlds of both fine art and illustration.
Ranging from the crudely rendered to the classically painted, and from graphite to airbrush, Team Macho playfully juxtapose styles and motifs. With a penchant for humble, unconventional materials like dollar-store watercolours and thrift-shop frames, Team Macho’s work conveys a decidedly unorthodox and individual approach. In a unique attitude toward collaboration, the group cultivates a highly competitive spirit, where the very nature of their alliance revolves around thwarting and subverting each other’s contributions.
Team Macho have exhibited at Magic Pony since 2005, with Friends for Life (June 2005), Team Macho is a Tough Man (May 2006), Fancy Action Now (May 2007) and Kitschy, Gay, And Over In a Second (September 2008). Magic Pony published their first monograph in 2007, entitled Fancy Action Now: The Art of Team Macho. They are currently working on a large scale installation project at the Art Gallery of Ontario launching in Feb 2012.
