Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - An art exhibition by Quebec artist Marc Galipeau opens at Galleria Dante on Friday, November 18, as part of the first Southside Shuffle of the 2016-2017 season. Stop by Puerto Vallarta's largest and most eclectic art gallery from 6-10 pm to meet the artist, view his art, and enjoy complimentary cocktails.
Marc Galipeau is a Quebec painter born on September 17, 1967 in the Monteregie region. Fascinated by the possibility to transpose life onto paper, he starts expressing himself artistically at a young age trying to emulate his older brother who was already mastering drawing as a child.
Through his travels and connections, he built himself a network of contacts that allowed him to start showing his work throughout Canada, the United States and parts of Europe. Largely influenced by artists such as Claude Théberge, Paul Tex Lecor and Claude Bonneau, among others, his works reflects an idyllic vision of everyday life that is bathed in happiness, light and color.
Marc's work is instantly recognizable by the soft, dreamlike atmospheres he is able to weave into his acrylic paintings. His characters, often appearing as if out of a dream, are done in true colors rendered in shimmering tones. His style could be said to have a folk art quality but the depth and the work that goes into its execution put him in a style all his own.
A serious and headstrong artist, Marc Galipeau's career is on a rising curve and shows no sign of slowing down its rise. This is his third season at Galleria Dante! Come meet Marc at Galleria Dante on Friday, November 18 from 6-10 pm.
