WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER
For the 2020 edition of Fashion Art Toronto, Borelson would like to create an interactive show paying homage to both Fashion Art Toronto and to the city of Toronto as a whole: the most multicultural city in the world.
Borelson is a multi-disciplinary artist, based in Toronto. After a bilingual (English/French) upbringing in central Africa (DR Congo & Gabon) and Paris where he performed and modelled at some fashion shows, he decided to take the leap of faith and settle down in the 6ix, despite having no friends or family here.
But his drive and interpersonal skills made him grow his network and fan-base rapidly: Indeed, in less than two years, Borelson has successfully been able to act in 5 short-films including one being premiered at the very first edition of Nuit Blanche Scarborough, to perform at festivals and venues such as Afrofest, Nuit Blanche, Unity Hip-Hop and the Drake Hotel.
As a Daniel Artscape Launchpad member (the top-notch incubator for creatives), Borelson worked on his own album, centered on the power of visualization, Afrofuturism and/in Hip-Hop, released in 2019.
