I was born in Douarnenez, France, on March 3rd 1984. Sailing, colour pencils and pastels took up most of my childhood, but after my A level I enter Merchant Navy School of Marseille. I got my certification of merchant navy officer in 2006 and then I reconnect with my pastels box on board Rara Avis around the Atlantic ocean. During eight months, navigation and drawing take up most of my days. In 2008, I moved to Tromso, Norway, to work on a tugboat and paint this fascinating country.
Since 2010, I decided not to embark anymore and I set up in Brest as an artist, working full time with gouache and linogravure.
In 2012, I was selected to show my art work at Palais de Chaillot, the National Maritime museum in Paris
Hélène Latulippe was born in Quebec. She lives and works in Montreal. She studied in Montreal industrial design at the Institut des Arts appliqués and she holds a BFA from at Concordia University (2012).
Since, her work have been showed in Canada. She received grands from McGill university in Montreal and from the Conseil des Arts et des Lettres du Quebec. She will be part of the 9th Biennale internationale d'estampe contemporaine de Trois-Rivières (Quebec) in June. Next fall, she will be presenting her work in 2 simultaneous solo exhibitions in Montreal and Trois-Rivières (Quebec)
Her work sheds light on Man’s passage. Hunting down remnants of memory, she reshapes them, reorganizes them to bring an emotion to the surface with which the viewer can identify. Responding to her own attraction to materials, big formats and her love for leaving marks, she molds her vocabulary after a simple shape, a solid color and a process based on the repetition of gesture.

A native of Belgium, Stéphane Gilot has lived and worked in Montreal since 1996. He holds an MA in visual and media arts from the University of Québec in Montreal. Gilot’s hybrid constructions and imaginary locales invite us to take part in an array of situations. Dubbed “plans d’évasions”, these constructions are a set of autonomous units that contribute to the construction of the “performative city,” an on-going and evolving project. The presentation of these structures—drawings, watercolors, models, shelters, video components—betray a marked interest in the social organization of cities, in our behavioural habits, and in a reconsidered anthropology of habitat. His architectural installations and video performances have been shown extensively in Canada and abroad (Belgium, France, Germany, USA, United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Serbia, Spain, Finland and Brazil). Notable solo exhibitions include The Performative City at Optica Gallery, Montreal in 2010 and Quebec City Museum of Fine Art in 2012; Multiversity at the Uqam Gallery, Montreal in 2012; La Station, presented at Oboro, Montreal in 2006; Videogame, at Paul Petro Contemporary Art, Toronto in 2005; Foire d’empoigne, at 251 Nord, Liège, Belgium in 2003; and Libre arbitre, at the Contemporary Art Museum of Montreal in 2001. His work as been shown in institutions like the Morris and Helen Belkin Downtown Gallery of Vancouver in 2002, the Canada House of London (U.K.) in 2003; the Transmediale of Berlin in 2006, the Flux Factory of New York in 2007, the Model Arts and Niland Gallery (Sligo, Ireland, 2009) and his work was part of the first triennial of contemporary art from Quebec at the Contemporary Art Museum of Montreal in 2008.

For every internal structure of human beings is a changing structure, that has the ability to renew itself and has a close relationship with its environment; always with a reference and a connection to a larger structure, generating direct connections, which relate and feed each other in a continuous and infinite movement. With her work she seeks to promote reflection on particular aspects of the human-nature interaction, since witnessing and experiencing nature will lead to reconnect with ones spiritual nature, remembering that one is part of it, as one is part of a society.
This will be decisive in our influence for changes that will occur in the ecosystem, society and on yourself.
