This week’s Deviant is Canadian artist Félix Girard. Girard was born in 1988 in Sainte-Brigitte-de-Laval, near Quebec City. A self-taught artist, both of Girard’s parents are painters giving him early exposure to different artistic mediums and techniques.
Girard’s influences include comics, Brian Froud, Jan Vermeer, Albrecht Dürer, Rembrandt, Salvador Dali, Gustav Klimt, Alphonse Mucha, William Turner, Edvard Munch, Antoni Gaudi, Hector Guimard and others.
Between 2007 – 2008 Girard traveled to France to gain artistic experience and to be inspired by new places and people. Now back in Quebec, Girard is planning to attend university to study architecture and hopes to create unique projects that combine both art and architecture.
