Emmanuel Laflamme

Montréal, QC, Canada

Title: Whitewashing II

Genre: acrylic & spray paint on wood

Emmanuel Laflamme consumes popular imagery with humour, creating scenes with strong meaning that lead us to laugh and think. Like the surrealists, he develops representations with an apparent impossibility that captures the viewer's attention. He creates his works like a creative director who would have nothing to sell. Combining cultural references, he diverts ancient and modern myths to serve us his perspective on the world, at once tender and critical. The absurd is his playground, the anachronism his specialty.
