“I wouldn’t call what I do trickery,” says Winston Hacking. “I am simply trying to create a sense of wonder, if only for a brief moment.” Surprise is at the centre of Hacking’s work. Based in Toronto, the visual artist takes far-flung visuals and fuses them together into collaged images, GIFs and films that take on a humorous character of their own.
When he isn’t busy on commissions or collaborating with other creatives – he has a handful of music videos under his belt for Flying Lotus and Andy Shauf, and was behind much of the artwork for FlyLo’s new album FLAMAGRA – Hacking often spends time adding to his broad collection of animations and trying his hand at new methods.
