Life of an Artist

Short documentary film capturing Kelvin Mendie on a typical summer day.

Kelvin is a photographer, musician, and fine artist studying at OCAD. The day follows Kelvin through his neighbourhood to captivate the essence of his life as an artist. 


In this series, Kelvin ventures through Toronto's Kensington neighbourhood, carrying solely a guitar on his newly customized bicycle. A typical day off of work involves music, food, friends, meditation and authentic Jamaican weed.
