The internet allows us all great opportunities as artists, not least of which is the chance to meet and discuss our work and our views, both with other artists and individuals connected with the arts world as a whole. I decided that I would occasionally like to feature the work of other painters and artists on my blog. With his kind permission, am starting with the paintings of French Canadian artist, Francois Vaillancourt.
Francois is a 39 year old painter from Montreal in Canada, and I first saw his work on Flickr. After a little correspondence it transpired that Francois was about to embark on that most nerve wracking of roads – his first solo exhibition.
I find his work simple yet wonderfully intriguing and brilliantly executed – it is also, to my eyes, rather original. I think a lot of people will find these paintings very interesting.
Francois’s exhibition will be at the Galerie Gora in Montreal from 22nd August until 9th September 2006. We wish him every success – and lots of sales!!
