What We Do
We are an art rental and sales service specializing in curated artworks by Toronto artists. Original work by local artists are just around the corner – and now within reach.
Whether you are a seasoned art collector or a curious art lover, Partial is here to make it simpler to bring true, original artwork onto your walls. Catering to city dwellers and businesses across Toronto, you can experiment and explore artwork that speaks to you. We know artwork is an investment – our rental model allows you to try out a piece for a few months, or express all sides of yourself with rotating artwork.
Who We Are
Tammy Yiu, Co-Founder
After embracing graphic design roles in the advertising world, Canadian fashion industry, and a gourmet bakery (!), Tammy founded SQUAB Creative Studio in 2009, where she continues to collaborate with clients such as Lifeline Syria, Moose Knuckles, The Arctic Research Foundation, and Fuck Cancer. In 2012, Tammy established homegrown outerwear brand OSC Cross and remained its Director until early-2016, when she turned her focus to a little idea called Partial.
She enjoys handwritten notes, bike rides in the summer, and more recently, working out of her new studio at 8Space (it just needs better art).
Chris Kim, Co-Founder
Chris Kim is a designer-turned-programmer with love for a minimalist (and rigorous) approach to digital media production. Working as an independent developer for various business sectors in Toronto, Chris also has been serving as an adjunct faculty member at OCADU and Ryerson University since 2012. In 2016, Chris founded Fresco Industries, where he provides job opportunities for recent graduates and current students who wish to learn practical programming as part of real-world projects.
As a big fan of vintage pop culture, Chris enjoys collecting retro memorabilia, 8-bit video games, and vinyl records. You should be able to spot him in the city lugging old TVs or Nintendos -- on any given day.
