Omar Reyna

bio

Omar Reyna (b. 1971, México City) is a Mexican-Canadian emerging artist exploring chemical as well as digital photography and mixing it with sculptural elements and other art practices. He interacted with diverse art forms early in his life; photography came many years later at university and never left. Omar moved to Whitehorse, Yukon in 2008 after living in a megalopolis for more than three decades. Canada's north was a perception change for him: Yukon's natural environment offered him an incomparable backdrop where he felt in tune making art. His relationship with this land has altered the outcome of his artistry endeavour.

He has a degree in Visual Communication, a Diploma in Philosophy of Image, a Diploma in Contemporary Art Photography. He also has studied sculpture with the OCA. He has a 9 to 5 job and juggles his free time between his art practice and maintaining a healthy lifestyle at home.
