Riley Oneill


While battling off the urge to immerse myself in consumer culture, I like to generate my own semi-consumable culture by scribbling on paper and pointing my camera at people and other animals when I get the chance. I’ve been drawing critters since 2nd grade and have been taking my camera a little too seriously since 2014. 

Through my little creations, I strive to invent new techniques and combinations of techniques that liberate our materials from rigidity towards new, unusual forms with perverse potential. 

I have a bachelor’s degree in filmmaking from Simon Fraser University and I am currently working on two projects funded by the Canada Council for the Arts. I have taught in South Korea and Japan and currently instruct classes with the Richmond Arts Centre and North Van Arts.
