Now closing on its 12th year, Artist Project remains one of the best showings of Canadian talent, specifically Toronto-based talent. 2019 saw over 300 artists gracing the Better Living Centre end-to-end, some competing in art battles, some pushing us to explore backwards, and many just helping us out of our pounding heads for a few days.

Here are the top 25 artists that got us feeling something.
