Montreal, Quebec based Heidi Taillefer is an artist who blurs the line between what is beautiful and what is grotesque. A fusion of ancient and modern, divine and demonic, mystical and technological, and altogether awe-inspiring, Taillefer’s pieces are unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. She seeks to explore and provide insights into the human condition, while paying particular attention to humanity’s increasingly complex relationships with technology and the advancement of AI.

Originally depicting subjects as machines placed in natural settings, her work acts as a nostalgic embrace of the past, through the lens of a culture racing forward at with technological advancements. While outpacing the evolution of our bodies and minds, Taillefer’s work examines the fact that a merger with technology does not insulate us from fundamental aspects of the human condition.

I did some painting in Montreal, Quebec recently..the yellow paisano was venturing into a Hasidic part of the city, painted with local aerosol kingpins Senck & Omen. The other piece was a really special project for the new offices of the architecture firm Aedifica. The two kids serve as a subtle reminder of the importance of creating a better environment for the next generation. I’ll try to post more shots later.
Merci to my friend Louis C, Val, Snoop, Poutine, and all the fine folks at Aedifica.
