Tetrault, Richard

About the artist
Recently: This Crawl i am exhibiting a series of gouache paintings drawn from Oaxaca, Mexico and from the Downtown East side. The Mexican series examines relationships between animals and humans in small, sketchbook sourced pieces. Larger East side themed mixed media works expand on themes of transformation, displacement and the fugitive nature of our urban landscape. I am presently completing a large mural for Kokoro Dance's new recording space called KW at Woodwards. As well, my public work incorporating routered aluminum panels called 'Urban Weave' is now installed on a new building near Richmond City Hall. History: My work has been shown in more than 80 exhibitions locally and internationally, and my relief prints and paintings appear in posters, graphics, stage productions, unique art books, as well as poetry books. I have painted numerous large-scale murals located throughout the Downtown Eastside as well as in other parts of Canada, Cuba, Mexico and Argentina. My studio is located at 884 East Georgia Street, near Campbell Avenue.

Themes of my paintings, prints and drawings come from my engagement with my immediate environment and my ongoing search for underlying passages of resonance.
