    astro's art show, held at Le Sino boutique & galerie, Montreal, Canada. Canvas, Paintings, creatures and graffiti.
Here are my brand new paintings especially created for my solo art show: Contrasts, held the 12th of september 2009 at  Le Sino Boutique & Galerie in Montreal, Canada.

The concept was simple: to create a strong contrast between my characters at the front and the background. To do that i only used  gray scale colors for the characters along with bold and clean outlines and a more abstract, colorful background filled with trash graffiti or childish drawings. I painted some flowers to balance the roughness of the tentacles or other nasty stuff.
Also, like always, my characters represent a contrast: cute at first sight but with vicious attitude when you look closer. 

All my canvas were created with acrylic paint.

Thanx for looking at my work, i hope you'll like it as i putted a lot of time and love into it:)
