Discover Canadian artists online. Peruse a growing collection of pioneering artists from Canada such as Lisa Carney and Peter Horvath, experts in a variety of different styles including Impressionist, Pop Art and Abstract.
Peter Horvath constructs expressive photography-based mixed media work exploring the surreal, the nostalgic and the hypnagogic. His animated prints are often of celebrities and recontextualised street art. Jagger, by way of example, juxtaposes advertising materials, pop culture iconography and blends highly saturated colours.
Winnipeg-born artist Caroline Mouuseau composes Abstract paintings. Her edgy contemporary style plays with various textures by drying out her oil paints before adding wax to the oils. Using contradictory colours and shapes, the dense brushstrokes seem to spill over and onto each other such as is seen in Swarm.
Also interested in shape formations and textures is Quebecois visual artist Jean-Sebastien Denis whose pictorial approach is born from a fascination with the instability of the world around us. His Imbrication series - for example, Imbrication #17 - studies the intersection between the virtual and the palpable.
Abstract artist Alex Dinet produces geometric compositions such as Carte de Xenode, bursting with colour, shape and movement. Though fairly new to the art scene, Alex quickly found his niche and is admired worldwide for his playful exploration of pattern and colour.
Landscape paintings by the award-winning Lisa Carney are inspired by the natural beauty of the Quebec Province in the rocky outskirts of Canada’s Eastern hemisphere. Lisa has refined a dripping technique which she uses to build a unique landscape of colour and texture on canvas, as can be seen in Rusty Lavender and Purple Sands, acrylic paint, satin varnish. Although minimalist in style and pleasant to observe, Lisa still succeeds in translating the power and resilience of these potent provincial landscapes.
