Eric Robitaille is a self-taught contemporary artist from Montreal, Quebec. He is currently represented by galleries in Quebec, Ontario and the U.S., and has shown works in several group and independent shows across Canada and internationally.
Through many years of experimentation, his style has evolved into a very unique combination of vibrant realism and modern abstract.
The distinctive integration of contrasting elements, colors and layers result in creations that are visually pleasing and intriguing, but above all communicate to perfection the story and significance of each piece.
Eric is strongly inspired by nature and wildlife. Diverse animal and plant life play a large role in recent series, primarily to symbolize human behavior and life mechanics.
‘’Each painting has its own language; the challenge is to decode which combination of techniques will best reveal its true story. Reaching that zone when you finally merge with the painting, and find its rhythm, despite all battles, is what drives me to constantly innovate and create.’’
