Mandy Stobo is a visual artist living in Calgary, Alberta. The creator of Bad Portraits, an international project, Stobo splits her time between creating large scale Contemporary pieces, Live projection performances, illustration and design, animation and most recently she has landed in the world of Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality content creation with a desire to combine low tech and high tech all while connecting with the viewer on an emotional level. Recently her Augmented Reality Portraits helped honour all the inductees at Canada’s Walk of Fame, an installation in the newest Westjet lounge and a few more surpises that she hopes will inspire. Never afraid to be vulnerable and always willing to tell stories in an authentic way, Stobo tries to relate to the hearts of others and allow space for everyone to discover, share and heal. Stobo loves big color and exploring a child-like aesthetic within her works. She devotes her world to her two boys and will never stop trying to prove to them that dreams can always come true.

After many beautiful talks with Frank, I wanted to create a piece of healing and hope. We all go through so much in our lives, and once you can embrace the things that are traumatic or hard in yourself as a superpower, what would that superpower grow and do?
