Yoakim Bélanger

Born in Montréal in 1977, Yoakim Bélanger was encouraged from a young age to explore his inner thoughts and means of self-expression. He took advantage of the opportunity to pursue the study of Graphic Design at Université du Québec à Montreal, where he studied photography, advertising, and multimedia. This foundation formed his practice as a painter, helping him to develop the distinctive manipulation of his medium that he is so well known for today.

Yoakim Bélanger creates expressive works where the organic forms of his figures and faces collide with the manufactured surfaces of oxidized steel and aluminum. Bélanger’s art is a dramatic examination of the human spirit while exploring the limits between abstraction and reality.  The critical state of our planet, as well as the fragility and beauty of the human’s body and soul, are reoccurring themes in the artist’s practice.

Bélanger works with found metals that hold the traces of passing time. These traces consist of varying textures and patterns, which to most people appear arbitrary and meaningless, but to Bélanger, they hold the primitive blueprint for his work. With his brush, he begins to bring forth an image that becomes entwined with the medium on which it is painted.

Bélanger is always evolving; continuing to push himself into his work, abandoning his comfort zone to embark on investigations of figuration and abstraction and how the two converge. This dichotomy is perfectly represented through his process and medium.  The abstraction of the artist’s subjects parallels his intent to strip humanity down to its essence.  As once something is broken down into its individual pieces, it can be understood in a new way by the viewer. For Bélanger, the viewer is vital to his artistic process, since his ultimate goal is to elicit emotions and narratives within the audience.
