To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the Just for Laughs Festival and the 375th of Montreal, I was asked to modify a dozen of artworks from the collection of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. The presentation produced by URBANA Marketing will be accompanied by the Visual Arts Contest, which was aimed this year at kids and adolescents from 0 to 18 years old, for the benefit of Children's Wish Foundation. These creations will be shown in the exhibition hall of the Place des Arts during the festival, from 15 to 30 of July.
Vendredi dernier, Antoine Tavaglione et moi avons passé 8 heures à créer cette toile de 4' x 6' sur le site du Festival Juste Pour Rire. Ayant chacun récupéré les personnages provenant de nos toiles respectives, nous les avons engagés dans une bataille de tartes, soulignant ainsi le thème du concours de cette année : La Farce. La toile est présentement exposée avec les autres œuvres finalistes sur le boulevard des arts, rue Ste-Catherine entre St-Urbain et l'entrée de la Place des Arts.
