So I’m now back to my human being state,
There was a big art contest in Montreal from the art gallery Arsenal, which is for those who don’t know, a very big gallery in Montreal. (and as a former architect, I can’t help to notice that their space is AMAZING)
The contest is called “Les Ateliers” and give the chance to young artist to have two months workshop with big names in the art world, so I’m pretty excited. The deadline was yesterday though, but you can always check it here if you are interrested in the matter.
The other good news is that it gave me a very big boost to produce the ideas that I had in my head, so I know have a new serie coming up! If you did check my instagram account you saw some preview already. I should post it in the next days. Give me the time to arrange the gallery properly first. Like I said, my speed of production this month wasn’t human, it reminded me of my years as an architecture student.
In case you missed the preview, here they are:
Looking forward to hear back from them! hopefully…
Today, I happened to be screenprinting on the same screen as the very talented illustrator Sophie Casson, which is also a family friend. I didn’t know she was going to the same screenprinting studio. She’ll even be in the same exhibition in two weeks…
Small world mm?
The studio is “La Bourgeoise Sérigraphe”, it’s where I learned to do screenprinting and where I keep going to do stuff. You can have more info here.
Obviously, the first week isn’t especially entertaining.
In order to have a real fresh start, I decided to whiten everything I had done so far:
the tests, the incompletes, the not good enought or even those I just got tired of looking.
So here you go, dozens of white canvases.
Now all I need is inspiration….
Oh okay, I’ll post something I did two weeks ago in order to keep the interest. I know my dirty studio floor is not so captivating.
Here is my favorites from a live drawing session I went two weeks ago.
I can’t believe I finally have it, but after two months of searching -being told yes and then no the day after- I finally got a studio!
It’s small but close, and the other artists working there looks like fun. I never thought it could be so complicated to find a little concrete box to work, seriously.
I decided to start a blog in order to record the process (hopefuly progress) of my work. I’ll see how often I can update it. Maybe less often at the beginning, but I could post old works in order to keep it alive. I’ll see!
In the meantime, you can see one serie I made at the beginning of last year, Growing Monsters, by clicking here.
But here it goes, I’ll be moving in tomorrow, and I can’t wait to start painting.
