TROIKA

 

On the occasion of the Art Tattoo Show convention, as Montreal becomes the international destination for tattoo artists & enthusiasts, three artists with prominent presence in the tattoo world will highlight the fine art side of the subculture. From Montreal, Los Angeles, and San Francisco respectively, Jean Labourdette, Shawn Barber, and Mike Davis have joined forces to present TROÏKA, an exhibit of paintings & mixed-media sculptures that explores how tattoo imagery has influenced fine art and vice versa.

 

ABOUT YVES LAROCHE GALLERY

From its origins in the Old Port of Montreal, to its current location at the junction of the Mile End and Little Italy, the gallery’s mission remains the same: to showcase the avant-garde in contemporary art. YL has positioned itself at the forefront of Canadian art and remains committed to promoting artists both internationally-established and emerging. Rooted in the underground worlds of tattooing, graffiti, comics, cartoons, pop art, illustration, and surrealism, the art exhibited at Yves Laroche feeds off of an eclectic blend of cultural influences. Supported by its reputation and its presence at several international art fairs, YL offers an urban gallery fundamentally connected to international contemporary production.
