Celebrated as the grandfather of digital art. Collected by the Hearst Family; Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy; Madonna; the Bristol Museum, UK & selected by the Board of Trustees of the Museum of Modern Art, New York & Guggenheim, New York through affiliated auctions. Caesar is also inspired from such masters that include François Boucher, Jean-Honoré Fragonard, Antoine Watteau.

Artist Bio

André Fauteux – Artist Bio

André Fauteux is an artist known for his abstract welded steel sculptures, which are influenced by Geometric abstraction and express themselves formally but without sacrificing the emotional impact that is more the providence of figurative imagery. He has found a way to communicate joy and sorrow, secrets and surprises. Fauteux believes that art is most compelling when reduced to Its essence, form, as expressed in the theory of Goethe and Greenberg. Fauteux has exhibited numerous international galleries and institution and has been collected by the AGO (Art Gallery of Ontario), The National Gallery (Canada), The Art Gallery of Hamilton amongst many others. Fauteux also has a permanent installation of a sculpture in the City of Barcelona, Spain and has won numerous Canada Council Awards and is in the Canada Council Art Bank.

André Fauteux has been painting for the past 10 years.

Artist Bio

Stephen Ibbott – Artist Bio

While completing his MFA at the University of Guelph (2001), Stephen began composing his paintings on the computer to better reflect the growing presence of the digital revolution. This abstract imagery soon evolved into representational, narrative paintings on subjects that related to how the computer and the internet were effecting our every day lives and relationships. Most recently, Stephen completed a series of brightly charged still life paintings (oil on canvas) that are a mash-up of iconic cultural artifacts, dating from antiquity to today, but which now have an easy ubiquity online. His work has been exhibited widely in gallery exhibitions and art fairs and received numerous awards.

Artist Bio

Brian Richer – Artist Bio

Brian Richer’s (b. 1968 Sudbury, ON., Canada) artistic practice is as varied as his work experience, which includes stone carving, industrial design, restaurant ownership, and interior design. A central aspect of Richer’s practice is testing the limits of materials, both in terms of their aesthetic and structural properties, as well as their ability to represent and make reference. Richer is also interested in the intersection between art and technology, an area which he explores through a branch of Castor Design (a Toronto-based design which Richer runs with Kei Ng) entitled Science and Humanities Division. Richer’s understanding of both art history and contemporary art, combined with his appreciation of technology, allow him to create objects which elude immediate categorization. Richer’s work blurs the line between the practicality of engineering on one hand, and the indulgence of fine art on the other. (photographed by Derek Shapton)

Artist Bio

Carol Sutton – Artist Bio

Sutton is mainly known for her large scale abstract acrylic paintings, which she paints with her canvas, laid directly on the floor. Related to the tradition of Color Field Painting her art has been linked by prominent critics to the art movement called Lyrical Abstraction. Her smaller paper works often take on unusual structural forms and have widely extended edges, sometimes cut in wave shapes. In 1987 Sutton was one of the few international artists invited to participate in the Art Triangle Workshop in Barcelona, her third Triangle workshop. Two years later a major Canada Council Grant allowed her to again travel to Europe to photograph and study ironwork throughout Spain and France. Carol Sutton’s artwork is represented in many public and private international contemporary art collections including: Smithsonian American Art Museum,The Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Mass.

Artist Bio

Selena Wong – Artist Bio

Like the urban environment of her place of birth in Hong Kong, Selena’s work reflects the petite surroundings, the places tucked away, forgotten, and removed from reality. Interested in superstition, folklore and the fantastical, Selena’s meticulously detailed translations of her daydreams and nightmares are both playful and disturbing. She currently works and lives in Toronto with her Netherland dwarf rabbit.
