Born in Montreal, Monet studied graphic design at Laval University while exploring other mediums in fine art. He worked in fashion and advertising before he dedicated himself to being a full-time artist. Monet has explored various media such as mosaic, collage and acrylics.
Inspired by cinema, photography, music and literature, Monet has a natural connection and sense for current society and its contemporaries. His signature style, a conceptual assemblage of text, texture and color exudes the eccentricity and empowerment of its time, exemplifying the characters and personalities of its icons.
Portraiture dominates his oeuvre, but not just any kind of portrait. His signature style blends a collage of old newspapers and books to the traits of his characters, rendering them with such precision, giving the illusion of a photograph.
With an ever-expanding demand for his works, Monet’s portraits have been exhibited in Paris, London, New York, Seoul, Singapore, Miami, Oslo, Cannes, Montreal, Dubai, Hong Kong, Berlin, Cologne, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Stuttgart, Munich, Frankfurt, Zurich, Vienne, Madrid, Melbourne and Moscow.Download the artist biography
