Scott Treleaven

It is to be remembered that all art is magical in origin… [it is] intended to produce very definite results.
William S. Burroughs

Scott Treleaven is a Toronto-based artist, a filmmaker, a visual artist and a writer. And also the founder ov the famed, mysterious and magickal zine ‘This is The Salivation Army’, a ‘paganfaggotpunk’ zine featuring the adventures ov a mystical gang ov mutineeres.
His artwork is placed under heavy references : William Blake, Aleister Crowley and his cryptic invocations, William Burroughs and his wild boyz’ teams, Brion Gysin, Kenneth Anger, the radical-queer-punk filmmaker Derek Jarman and at last, the pandrogynous creature Genesis Breyer P. Orridge.
His collages and paintings are mixing shirtless wild guyz, flowers, skulls, alchemical symbols and wolves.
