Born in Toronto, then raised everywhere from the USA, Trinidad, and Canada, Tiffini Truth straddles the boundaries between timeless and transgressive metal art, writer, musician, and host to a variety of series on Youtube. At first, art offered an escape from her childhood trauma and sexual abuse, but it became something else entirely into adulthood — a tool to reclaim power over her body and mind. Tiffini embarked on her journey into the entertainment industry first by becoming a model in 2006 and was published in various publications both digital/print including Inked, Hot Rod, & Metal Hammer magazine. She also worked with independent fashion designers. Post modeling career she transformed her artistic expression into extreme performance art as she used metal slates and power tools to enact death-defying stunt work with music and toured internationally as a one-woman show. However, after the threat of stunt work performance injuries became a reality, she used her voice and metal to encompass her fine arts background and transform what metal art looks like. From stints in Vancouver to LA, Mexico to now living in Montreal, Tiffini’s art is a commentary on creating art out of destruction, and ultimately brings darkness (and how we are desensitized to it) to light.
Tiffini Truth is currently working on her first major metal art exhibition in Montreal. There is a series of digital metal art prints which debuted in 2020. The upcoming metal art exhibition will be the follow-up to that collection using large-scale pieces of naturally aged metal as a canvas to convey thought and emotion in physical spaces.
