Trinley Dorje

Artist member since 2019
Toronto, Ontario

Trinley Dorje is a Toronto based, self-taught mixed media artist whose artworks are visual anthropological explorations of the human experience. Her aim is to strip away societal biases based on exterior level physical traits by removing or altering the skin of the human body which, in turn, allows the viewer of her art to openly negotiate the emotional and gendered meanings of the human body. She hopes her art will encourage discussion around racial, gender, and sexual biases and the importance of equality for all.

Her artwork has been shown in Canada, the United States, Netherlands, Sweden and Ireland. She has been featured on CBC Arts: Exhibitionist TV Series and has been published in magazines, medical journals, online articles and on book covers.
