Colin Quashie’s pointed response to the world around him

It may be difficult to spot Colin Quashie’s second-story studio if you aren’t explicitly looking for it. An indistinct C and Q pasted to a glass door are the only clues that something else goes on in this standalone brick-and-concrete building on Upper King Street besides the haircuts that take place in the first-floor barber shop.

So instead, a better sign of what happens on the second story may be in the downstairs shop, where one of Quashie’s works hangs on a wall near the wide windows.
