- About -

Queen of Double Eyes, 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 such as Le Petit Voyeur, Tattoo Fest Magazine, The Art Education Journal , Beautiful Bizarre Magazine and on multiple online platforms : Supersonic, Hi-Fructose Magazine, Juxtapoz, My Modern Met, The Huffintong Post, Mashable.com, BUzznet.com, ViralNova 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 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.
