a visual arts parlour

Croyds is an online art gallery, committed to documenting & showcasing local art through the lens of visual artists and their mediums. Our concept invites prospective art collectors to discover, interpret, and actuate their inner-curator.

“Art purges former ideals of our world by bringing in the new… As a purveyor of art, i'm not a creator, but rather a destroyer of worlds.”

mevin — founder & curator

Montreal native, Mevin Runganaikaloo, has been working as an independent curator for nearly 7 years. His Mauritian roots instilled his core family values of honesty, passion, grit. Mevin prides himself in his unwavering commitment to highlighting artistic excellence in the Montreal visual arts scene — with an added focus of honoring authorship and ownership of creative works.

The Croyds concept — amplifying our spiritual connection to physical art — is paradoxically anchored in the digital experience landscape.

His curatorial method can be described as “Show & Tell” — documenting and showcasing an artist or artwork, while inviting the viewer the freedom to make their own assumptions or interpretations. Mevin’s curiosity and eloquence arms him with an unparalleled ability to imbue art collectors with a renewed sense of introspection.

Adida fallen angel

One does not ever truly own a piece of art. they are an honorary custodian.

This intangible emotional relationship between artist and collector transcends the custodial transaction. Mevin’s humanistic approach to curation aims to strengthen the compelling nature of this relationship.
