TUSSLE was established in 2013 in Toronto as a response to a scarcity of art coverage in the region and the rising popularity of online art publications globally. Spearheaded by Laura Horne, an independent artist and curator, with the help of her colleague at the time, Judy Zhong, TUSSLE was born.
In addition to promoting innovative and cutting-edge artistic expressions and providing a dynamic platform to showcase contemporary art, TUSSLE is also dedicated to fostering a community of diverse artists and art enthusiasts. The platform is committed to highlighting the works of emerging and established artists and creating opportunities for collaboration and engagement between artists and their audiences. TUSSLE strives to be a hub for creative inspiration, a place where artists and art lovers can come together to celebrate the beauty and power of artistic expression.
TUSSLE has evolved into an acclaimed online publication and exhibition project platform. In 2020, TUSSLE expanded its reach with the creation of TUSSLEProjects, an online exhibition platform that celebrates collaborations and projects between artists. With its intuitive and visually engaging interface, TUSSLEProjects has provided artists with a dynamic platform to showcase their works and engage with a global audience, further cementing TUSSLE's position as a force to be reckoned with in the contemporary art scene.
