LE LIVART - MONTREAL, CANADA - As part of his international tour, Sylvain Tremblay has presented his latest work and his new art book, SYLVAIN TREMBLAY Brooklyn, Beijing, Dubai, Montreal, from 14 to 18 November at the Le Livart art centre.

Following his NO GENDER exhibition at the Never Apart art centre in 2016, Tremblay returned with the same exuberant, contagious energy to present work that is entirely different. After nearly ten years spent amid the urban fauna of Beijing, Dubai and Brooklyn (where the artist has chosen to make his home), his inspiring, thrilling adventures have led him to explore new art techniques, push his artistic limits still farther, and reaffirm his art.

In developing this documentary, Sylvain Tremblay walked in the footsteps of da Vinci which led him from Italy to France. The documentary was produced by himself and the Canadian University of Dubai, and directed by Stéphane Chabas.

Sylvain Tremblay celebrates Leonardo da Vinci and brings new life to his visionary and creative genius, as in the portraits he made of the Master or in his reinterpretation of the Last Supper. Da Vinci devoted 30 years of his life to the study of anatomy. In his paintings, the Québec artist finds new ways of expressing the human body. He refers to himself as a conceptual artist who plays with textures, representing flesh as the expression of the body, conveying emotions and sensitivity.
