Hyper-realistic Oil Paintings by Francois Chartier

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, October 01, 2013
Realism has always been of tremendous interest to Montreal-based artist Francois Chartier. While his paintings are realistic, his 'goal is to create, through layering of mediums and the play of the brush, the illusion of depth and sense of presence beyond what is found in photographs."

The 2013 Mosaïcultures Internationales de Montréal

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 10, 2013
Our neighbor has a hedge shaped like several lopsided giant spheres and we once saw a shrubbery carved to look like a sheep. We have never seen anything of the likes of the horticulture art at Mosaïcultures Internationales de Montréal, an international competition in Montreal, Canada. Mosaiculture, for those of you who were as clueless as us, "is a refined horticultural art that involves creating and mounting living artworks made primarily from plants with colorful foliage (generally annuals, and occasionally perennials)."

Butcher's Hook @ Yves Laroche, Montreal

Street Art // Saturday, June 08, 2013
The two-person exhibition Butcher’s Hook featuring the work of Jesse Hazelip and Jon Todd opens tonight, June 8, 2013 at Yves Laroche in Montreal, Quebec. Todd will be showing new expressionistic-like portrait paintings, while Hazelip’s work is ballpoint pen drawings and mixed media.

Today, we look back on the mural created in Montreal by former Juxtapoz feature artists and design team, 123Klan. The piece was completed on Boulevard Saint-Laurent.

Galerie Trois Points is very pleased to welcome Double Twist, the first solo exhibition in Montreal of young Toronto-based artist Winnie Truong, running through November 10th.
