About, Biography, Contact

I am a Montréal visual artist engaged in contemporary art trends in Canada with a full-time painting practice based out of my work/live studio in the city. My current artist project embraces some interesting new themes that weave together figurative elements of pop sensibilities with a geometric abstract substructure. Mostly I work in oil paint on wood panel or canvas as well as acrylic and collage on paper. My work can be viewed at The David Kaye Gallery in Toronto;  check for info at www.davidkayegallery.com .  Over the last few years I have had solo exhibitions of paintings both in Toronto and Montreal. During the last decade I have also completed a number of murals  throughout Eastern Canada, from Newfoundland through Nova Scotia, P.E.I., New Brunswick and Quebec.
