This exhibition took place in Munich from September 20th to October 20th 2014. I was invited by Carhartt work in progress to exhibit at their gallery in the clothing store of Munich. I built everything on site.
Gaz mask monkey
This is the picture of the work I made in Bayonne, France during my residency in the spring of 2014. This show will travel from Bayonne to Lyon and then to Lyon.
I was invited to showcase my work by Spacejunk Center, an organization who showcases artists from the urban art and Lowbrow art world.
This sculpture called IncorporApe was built at Fresh Paint Gallery during the summer 2012. The structure inside the car is made out of wood. The monkeys are made entirely out of cardboard. This sculpture was also displayed at the Festival Chromatic 2013 and at Yves Laroche Gallery, Montreal.
This cardboard sculpture is the first one of a long series of work. Presented at the Fresh Paint Gallery for the Festival Montreal en Lumières, it became my trademark for the time to come.

This installation called Business boonz is a caricature interpreting baboons as business men working. Sitting at a conference table, the monkeys are trying to get some work done except one of them is sitting on the table, tiring up a newspaper while the other one as clearly taken a bite of the important document on the table in front of him. Primal instinct are taking over. To my opinion, it's not too different than humans fighting hormonal rushes, violent behaviors and basic instinct to push a pen all day.

An elephant in the truck
An elephant in the truck was a project presented at the Toronto Nuit Blanche of 2013. The purpose of the installation was to yield the overall impression that the cardboard sculpture is too large for the truck. I use animal imagery to symbolize and represent political issues and social behavior. Entitled “There is an elephant in the truck”, this piece focuses on how we ignore the obvious issues around us instead of facing them.
