Queen of Double Eyes, Alex Garant studied visual arts at Notre-Dame–De-Foy College just outside Quebec City. After graduating in 2001, she ultimately settled in Toronto, Canada.
She decided to truly commit to her passion for Arts after suffering from a heart attack in 2012, changing forever how she would see the world.
As a pioneer of “Contemporary Figurative Op Art,” her oil paintings offer a graphic quality combined with traditional portrait techniques. Garant establishes herself as one of the leaders of analog Glitch Art by using patterns, duplication of elements, symmetry and image superposition as key elements of her imagery. Alex Garant’s paintings are certainly conversation pieces as they are meant to engage observers into an image investigation process and hopefully enlist their senses differently while doing so.
Alex has shown works in art galleries all over Canada and the U.S. (Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York), as well as Australia and Portugal. Her works have also been shown at The Fullerton Museum and The Lancaster Museum of Art and History (MOAH) in California. She has been featured on CBC in a mini documentary about Contemporary Canadian Artists and her works have been seen in Magazines including: BAZAAR, Le Petit Voyeur, Tattoo Fest Magazine, The Art Education Journal , Beautiful Bizarre Magazine and on multiple online platforms including: VICE, The Huffington Post, Mashable.com, Buzznet, ViralNova, Tory Burch Trends and many more.
