Best Visual Artist: Mandy Stobo
The energy of Mandy Stobo is infectious. Within minutes of meeting her, you can tell she’s an all-or-nothing kind of gal. She’s bold, and filled to the brim with humble Albertan grit – with a wicked sense of humour to boot. Mandy Stobo creates her pieces on canvas in the same carefree, playful way as she lives her life.
The “Bad Portraits” artist, known for being good pals with Nenshi and causing a stir on social media in recent years with her unique take on celebrity-driven portraits, Stobo is one for experimentation, rolling with the punches, and not taking herself all that seriously.
