Artist

Coral Short

Coral Short was born on a beautiful island on the west coast of Canada and was raised by a lively river in the countryside where their eccentric family lived off the land. As an adult, Coral has become a prolific performance artist for the last fifteen years while living and travelling in Europe, Asia, and North America. Humour, fantasy, and transformation are integral components within their practice. They love getting public with their art — interacting with the unsuspecting and curious masses. Coral spends a fair amount of time spreading their enchantment around the globe in the air, on railroad tracks and highways. Their practice is a social practice. Coral has many beloved people, communities, and locations that they call home. Their countless projects move at the speed of light; ironically they are the most still when they travel.
