  • Alex Garant studied visual arts at Notre-Dame–De-Foy College just outside Quebec City. After graduating in 2001, she ultimately settled in Toronto, Canada.

    She decided to truly commit to her passion for Arts after suffering from a heart attack in 2012, changing forever how she would see the world.

    Alex has shown works all over Canada and the United States as well as Portugal and Australia; she also has been featured in publications like Beautiful Bizarre Magazine, Supersonic, Hi-Fructose Magazine, Juxtapoz, My Modern Met, The Huffintong Post, Mashable.com, BUzznet.com  and many more.

    Her alla prima oil paintings offer a graphic quality combined with traditional portrait techniques. Garant  uses patterns, duplication of elements,  symmetry and image superposition as key elements of her imagery. Alex Garant's paintings are not far from a perfect optical illusion: her protagonists trying to escape themselves, almost possessed by a distinct version of their own individuality, an exorcism of the soul.

    The viewers shall try to unearth the main figure by focusing on making those multiples into one. Alex Garant's paintings are certainly conversation pieces as they are meant to engage the observers into an image investigation process and hopefully enlist their senses differently while doing so.
