Jill Stanton is a muralist and artist from Edmonton, Alberta.
Jill's work has been featured in the 2017 Vancouver Mural Festival, Toronto's Underpass Park, the 2017 Wall-to-Wall Mural Festival in Winnipeg, the 2015 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art, as well as several private and public mural commissions across Canada. She was shortlisted for the 2017 and 2015 Eldon & Anne Foote Visual Arts Prize.
Jill paints murals with a balance between careful planning and site-sensitive improvisation, resulting in pieces that are tailor-made for their environments. She is inspired by a variety of subject matter; many of her murals feature familiar forms (such as plants and hands) to manipulate the viewer’s feeling of scale. Currently, Jill is experimenting with more abstract shapes, and using them to guide the viewer’s eye around the composition on the wall to suggest open narratives.
