Yoakim Bélanger was trained in graphic design at the University of Québec in Montreal. He then ascertained a great deal of experience in photography and multimedia, all of which have paved the path for his artistic endeavour.
The creative skills and knowledge that he has gained from his past experience are quiet integral to his aesthetic process. However, the use of an oxidized steel, marked by history and time acts as the backbone of his art. Consequently, the work of art will come to life long before his paint brush meets the cold metal surface.
From this point, it will only be a matter of time before the acrylic paints and inks are diluted and worked onto steal to reveal his artistic vision.
