“Because the Kids Don’t Play” is the first solo show from renowned Toronto artist Bryan Espiritu. The event took place on Friday May 13th 2011 inside the Glass Factory at 99 Sudbury. The show featured 56 mixed medium art pieces combining both digital and fine arts ranging in sizes from 1 x 1’ to 4.25 x 4.25’.

“‎‌My inspiration behind “Because the Kids Don’t Play” is the loss of innocence in society’s children. It’s the very real adult issues that children need to face when their lives are overwhelmed with physical abuse, sexual abuse, mental health and psychiatric treatment, self-worthlessness, and a lack of focus on just being kids. It’s a statement on the blind eye that parents take to the issues of their children and how self-destruction is often the result of parental ignorance.” – Bryan Espiritu
