Meet Hickstead

Hickstead was a collaboration of two professional fine art painters and OCAD University graduates. The artists used the horse as a metaphorical canvas to combine the symbolisms of the horse’s body with the Canadian landscape. Good land brings good horses and their intent was to give way to interpretation of the Canadian horse as a spiritual landscape of itself.
