Gabriel Rioux is an emerging artist based in Montreal, Canada. His mixed media paintings are heavily influenced by an academic background in literature and philosophy, as well as observations of everyday life.
"Emerging Quebec painter Gabriel Rioux defies our perception of time, space and the constraints of inner knowledge. His harmonious, yet visually tense paintings offer us a meticulously codified window into the artist’s imagination and subconscious mind. Rioux’s intuitive works, full of symbolism, present an almost canonical composition of spaces delineated by a neat line and a subtle change of shade. “ -Sarah Bilson, Interview
