Karina Bergmans is an emerging Canadian artist crafting up art chaos everywhere she goes. She was born in Nepean, Ontario on a cold day in January in '73. Karina has a psychology degree from Carleton University, but she prefers to create conceptual art and ideas. She continues to push boundaries and challenge herself and her audience regarding art and conceptual ideas. She has a love for making things and couldn't imagine a day without being productive.
Karina's work has been shown at Gallery 1313, Toronto Alternative Fashion Show [FAT], Cambridge Galleries, AWOL (Toronto) as well as SAW Gallery, La Petite Mort Gallery and Gallery 101 in Ottawa. She has participated in numerous art festivals and exhibitions including Toronto International Busker Festival, One Of a Kind Christmas show (Toronto), the Junction Arts Festival, Ottawa's Art in the Park and the Ottawa Fringe Festival.
In 2003, she founded the company Kaleidoscope Art to encompass all the honey-pots she has her hands in: fibre art, sculptures, street painting, digital art, performance art, installation and unusual art production/custom orders. Her work has been supported with grants from the Ontario Arts Council (2004, 2007) and the City of Ottawa (2005, 2006).
