Artists Bio McMonster: McMonster is a storyteller that gives no narrative; Enchanting viewers to create their own story within each piece. Stemming from horror and fantasy, McMonster creates each piece with only ink and water for the tones of grey and bends light and focus with bright white acrylic ink. Hailing from the gloomy PNW, McMonster creates worlds that are both dreary and whimsical.
Artist Bio Baku: Some of our works are strictly abstract, while others merge with the figurative. For the abstract part, we use epoxy resin in which we have diluted fluid pigments. We love this technique because it forces us to adapt to the vagaries of this viscous material. This loss of control frees us from pre-established conventions and from performance anxiety. The emancipated movement found in the play of colours is of great aesthetic quality.
In addition, we have created some paintings in collaboration with different visual artists. We had the chance to work with painters, 3D artists and photographers from here (Canada) and elsewhere: China, Germany, Spain, Brazil, United States, Greece etc. The exchange of ideas and the mixture of styles give the paintings a unique dimension.
We have made the most of what the digital age we live in has to offer: Instagram allowed us to break through geographical boundaries. We have had the fortunate opportunity to export our art out of Canada, in countries such as France, the United States, China and England. Thanks to this incredible platform, we had our first exhibition in New York at the gallery “Van der place”.
