Baku is a Japanese mythological creature that feeds on dreams and nightmares. This aspect of the “Baku monster” adequately symbolizes our vaporous artworks.
Some of our works are strictly abstract, while others merge with the figurative. We use the adobe suite and procreate for the realization of our artworks. We specialize in 2D creations and illustration. Our work is inspired from the theme of dreams. We are drawn to illustrate various women characters in colorful dreamworlds. For the abstract elements, we use resin in which we have diluted fluid pigments. We love this technique because it forces us to adapt to the vagaries of this viscous material. This loss of control frees us from pre-established conventions and from performance anxiety. The emancipated movement found in the play of colours is of great aesthetic quality.
In addition, we have created various collaboration projects with different visual artists. We had the chance to work with painters, 3D artists and photographers from here (Canada) and elsewhere. Artists such as : Dirty Robot, Archan Nair, Aeforia, Voodoo Salad, Chewy Stoll, Mc Monster, Jf Lemay and others. The exchange of ideas and the mixture of styles give the paintings a unique dimension. The visual artists community always showed openness to our artistic endeavor and we are very thankful.
We have made the most of what the digital age we live in has to offer. We have had the fortunate opportunity to export our art internationally.
