Eric Tardif – 2018 Featured Artist

Hometown: Gatineau, Canada
Inspired by nature, but also the art of the First Nations of Canada (the aboriginal people of Canada who are not Inuit or M├ętis), Eric Tardif is sensitive to the expressive possibilities. His passion for birds, their elegance and grace in movement, is a source of inspiration that stimulates his imagination and creation. But the figure remains for him only a starting point; it cannot fully communicate his vision without the evocative impressions of abstraction. The innovative character of his work has earned him a number of awards in Japan and the U.S.
