Surreal, comical and dark collages by Pierre-Paul Pariseau

Evoking currents of surrealism and pop art, the creative work of Montréal illustrator Pierre-Paul Pariseau invites us into a world of images where anything is possible. From his fusion of traditional collages and digital photo-editing, his visual articulation of thoughts, moods and emotions emanates dreamlike scenes and strange theatrical dramas.

In an artist statement: "Happy coincidences, anecdotal events inspire the artist in a fantasy that translates into images made of vibrant colours, stunning juxtapositions and hypnotic reveries that are always compelling. His anthropomorphic creations seems to request storytelling but never impose one. Here the creatures are sentient beings , with emotions and personality. They are a metaphor for our behaviour.

"The intensity of Pierre-Paul's work confuses and attract in a way that does not dictate to the viewer, but stimulate imagination to explore unrestrained. An invitation to discover enigmatic mixed media images that captivate and intrigue."
