Perspectives Exhibition

Perspectives Exhibition, 2018

The Learning Zone Gallery presents a group exhibition called Perspectives.

This exhibition was organized by International Eyes, a student group which represents a community of students from culturally diverse backgrounds. It includes work in a variety of mediums, from painting to photography.

Contributors: Kalore Jingmei Cao, Raquel Gouvea Jose Felicia da Costa, Tim Hu, Nataly Kais, Ji Woo Lim, Kaylee Meyer, Tony Mulo, Ehiko Odeh, Michelle Scholz, Zhiyi Qian and Chenjun Zhu.


‘Perspectives’ is an exhibition showcasing the work of international students at OCAD U. While being international means different things to each student, it is oftentimes a big part of one’s identity. This is a small insight into the diverse body of work that international students are creating that highlights their abilities, personalities and passions.

International Eyes Gallery – Liisa Aaltio

Liisa Underwater Steampunk

Liisa Aaltio: Underwater Steampunk

The Learning Zone is pleased to announce Steampunk Sea Life by Liisa Aaltio, currently on exhibition at the International Eyes Gallery. Liisa is a 3rd year illustration student from Helsinki, Finland.

Learning Zone: Hi Liisa, can you tell us a little about yourself and the art that you create?

Liisa: I’m really fascinated by biology, nature and machines at the same time. A lot of my pieces have a little bit of darkness in them. I use a lot of patterning in my artwork.

LZ: Being an international student, do you have a favourite city?

Liisa: I have multiple favourites, bits and pieces of each city that makes them favourable to me… I would love to live in Paris, I love the food and the atmosphere, Boston, I’ve travelled there so many times, it’s my third home and Iceland is my get away city, summers in Helsinki are beautiful and I would love to live in Toronto.

Visit the LZ before April 20th, to see these amazing illustrations by Liisa.

Getting Involved with InternationalEyes on Campus

By Liisa Aaltio

Want to get involved more with International Student in OCADU?

There are multiple opportunities to meet and connect with other International Students on campus:

International Students Group

Join the International Students’ Group! We meet monthly to discuss topics and/or challenges of common interest, coordinate guest speakers, plan social events, study groups, and gallery visits. The group exists to enhance the life of international students and all students who wish to internationalize their OCADU experience.

InternationalEyes Café

The Internationaleyes student group and the International Student Services Office host InternationalEyes Café’s. After a great success of the first café of 2011 at March 7th we decided to meet at least once a month to have lunch together and share experiences and information in an informal get-together.  Next Café will be March 21st at the Learning Zone from 12-1, welcome!

InternationalEyes on Facebook

Since we are all spread around the campus and sometimes it is hard to meet other International Students or get updated information of the events, join the Internationaleyes at OCAD on Facebook to have the latest information about the Café’s and other events, and to easily connect with other students on the campus!

InternationalEyes Gallery

Looking for a place to exhibit your work? InternationalEyes iHUB Gallery is currently looking for monthly artists to exhibit their work!

The Internationaleyes iHub gallery is located between the Learning Zone office and AV Loans. The exhibition space is 7 feet wide and 8 feet high.
