Sébastien Gaudette is living and working in Montreal. He has made several solo exhibitions and has participated in-group exhibitions. Winner of many awards including the first prize of the jury at Festival International Montréal en Arts (FIMA) in 2011, this self-taught artist specialized in the integration of different techniques in visual art, and it is with joy and passion that he hopes to leave his mark in the visual art history of Quebec as a poet and writer.
Sébastien Gaudette works mainly with acrylic paint, incorporating several mediums such as oil stick, pencil, spray can, monotype, and collage. He is constantly exploring the deconstruction of the object, the combination of materials and textures. Research and creation are paramount to him and he spends much time to push ever further his exploration.
In his works, priority is given to reveal strong emotions, messages, awareness’s, social problems, solutions, questions ... He likes his characters to travel into narrative universes which are fragmented and chaotic, to demonstrate the fine line between dream and reality. His characters are the actors of all his staged scenes based on many of the texts he wrote. In short, his works tend to be autobiographical.
