Gabriel Rioux - Cotton
Gabriel Rioux (1996) is a young painter born in Montreal and raised in Blainville, Quebec. Painting for him comes in as a creative meditation. His background in literature highly influences his work, as he often incorporates words and scribbled sentences from old notebooks in his paintings. His primary goal is not to eye please but to express deep thoughts and feelings which are not always beautiful to see. Combining oil paint, acrylic, markers and material, his style comes in as rough and intuitive.
