Wendell Bruno

Greater Toronto Art 2024

Wendell Bruno (b. Port of Spain, Trinidad) is an artist based in Toronto. Working in the film industry since 1994, he has developed a practice that incorporates animation, experimental film, AI, and digital processing. He has made five short films that examine media stereotypes of Black masculinity and, more recently, relations between parents and their sons. He holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film Production and Film Studies from Concordia University in Montréal.

For GTA24, Wendell Bruno will include three experimental videos, all made between 1993 and 1994 at a moment when global socio-cultural concerns in art were raised specifically in the realm of Black identity. Through a mining of personal history and social experiences, the films are a visual and sonic exploration of pleasure, identity, and sexuality.
