I am now part of "Artsite à l'école" program and started giving creative workshops in schools! I really enjoy it, so if you know an art teacher, feel free to pass the word around. You can view the full description of the workshop here.
Four artworks from the blue series are now available at Artothèque de Montréal. You can rent them on their website.
There's a new batch of Ficticious Petroglyphs available at Station 16 Gallery! Sculpted in pieces of marble of various sizes using sandblasting, they're a tribute to the alternative theories regarding the origins of humanity and ancient Egypt.
The artist Gribouilliz and I created a 7' x 7' piece on the corner of Saint-Laurent and Mont-Royal during RU festival.
For four days and three evenings from the 24th to the 27th of August, artists seize the street to transform it to their imagination. Live painting on the pavement, outdoor concerts, dance, art installations, all reasons are good to transform the neighborhood into a creative platform. Of course, the public is invited to take part in this beautiful collective madness. So everybody out!
Schedule of the events I'll be part of:
24 August from 4 pm to 6 pm: live painting with Gribouilliz at the corner of Mont-Royal and St-Laurent
25 August from 9 pm to 2 am: grande fresque de nuit at the corner of Mont-Royal and Pontiac
26 August from 3 pm to 7 pm: live painting with Gribouilliz at the corner of Mont-Royal and St-Laurent
Very happy to announce that I was selected with all these amazing artists for the Mikw Chiyam residency! Next spring, I'm going to spend 6 weeks to work on new artworks and make creative workshops with students from the Waskaganish High School, a Cree village in northern Quebec!

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.
