Born in Montreal in 1983, ARPI’s interest for the visual arts is rooted in his childhood. He recalls delving into his imagination to envision the lives of the artists and subjects of the paintings in his mother’s collection.
Self-taught, ARPI has made art his profession since 2006. His commissioned work and the unique characteristics of each of his projects have pushed him out of his comfort zone and given him the opportunity to adapt to a variety of artistic circumstances. He strives to showcase the beauty of simplicity in his work, exposing the delicate balance between realism and abstraction that occurs when bringing an idea to life.
