Born in Quebec city in 1986, Laurence Vallières was discovered by the creation of large-scale sculptures in cardboard. Vallières studied at Concordia University in visual arts before doing an exchange program in Los Angeles to further her knowledge in ceramics.
It’s only after graduation and doing an artist residency in Russia that she appropriated the street art influence in her work. By using cardboard, material that she finds in abundance in the street, she can create large work on the spot in every part of the world she goes.
Art work by Martina Merlini @martina_merlini included in PROABSTRACTION+ and on view at @swintongallery through October 20th.
