Comics in Quebec City with Boudro
Québec City will soon be brighten up with loud colors, characters, and stories of all kinds with the Festival Quebec BD from April 7 to 15, 2018! Formerly the Festival de la bande dessinée francophone de Quebec, the event hosts many activities in the Petit Champlain and Old Quebec areas. Are you interested in comics? If so, make sure to visit the Perreault Art Gallery to see paintings by Boudro, a colorful artist whose style pays tribute to this type of art!
Boudro has been part of the Perreault family of artists since July 2016. His unique visual signature mixes characters, Pop Art and bright colors in unusual shapes such as stamps or puzzle pieces. Warhol, Haring, Lichtenstein and Rosenquist were influential and significant figures for the artist. No wonder the result attracts fans of comic books!
Taking part in the cultural life of Quebec City
Boudro participates in the cultural life of the Old Quebec with his art in different ways. For example, the artist created a series of paintings inspired by vinyl records, entitled POP SONG, for the 2017 Quebec International Jazz Festival. (Click here to see Radio-Canada’s report on this work – in French) Not only did local art fans fall in love with these beautiful creations, but a Swiss art gallery also jumped on the opportunity to display some of them – an instant success! (Click here to learn more – in French) In fact, the artist has a large audience in Quebec, as well as in the United States and in Europe!
The Perreault Art Gallery also had the pleasure of presenting Boudro at work during the 2017 Nuit des Galeries: the artist created an art piece live in our gallery while visitors could watch him paint!
Pop Art with a touch of comic in the Old Quebec
For 25 years, the Boudro language has attracted many collectors. Today, he puts an emphasis on two medias that have always been present in his work: advertising and comics. With his unique touch of humor, the painter plays with volumes and colors to create effects of perspective and depth presenting characters from popular culture, such as Donald Duck, Spiderman, Wonder Woman or Snoopy.
