Megan Fitzgerald

Megan Fitzgerald

Artist

Megan Fitzgerald is a young and imaginative artist born, raised and currently based in Montreal, Canada. She received her Bachelors of Fine Arts with honors in Drawing and Painting from OCAD University in Toronto. From the moment her artist mother placed a brush in her hand, Megan has been in love with painting. Art making was a daily occurrence, gallery visits replaced soccer games and art was a way of life. Understanding, unraveling and expressively depicting all that surrounded her became an obsession, a passion that is manifested in her work today.

Megan spent 5 years as an art teacher for children, and opportunity that enabled her to view the world with the same innocent spirit as the young artists she worked with. Through two years of fine art training in College and another 3 years in University, Megan worked to keep this curiosity and wonderment in every art piece she approached. IN2015, she moved to Florence, Italy, deepening her artistic practice and exhibiting in the company of the Renaissance masters and rolling hills of Tuscany. Together, the impressive landscapes and renowned figurative artworks that saturated the city began to seep into her artistic psyche. Returning to Montreal, Megan began a series of Tuscan landscape works, culminating in a sold out solo exhibition and permanent gallery representation at Chase Art Gallery in Montreal.

Today, she continues to produce landscape and portrait paintings in her home studio as well as pursue other ventures such as public art installations, commissioned portraits and most recently, a self-curated exhibition that culminated in a silent auction for a local charity.

Oleg Sceniov

Oleg Sceniov

Artist

Oleg Sceniov’s beautifully rendered florals and landscapes generate feelings of calmness and tranquillity. With a delicate fusion of knife and brushwork, he creates intricate textures that can be appreciated from up close and which also come together to form balanced compositions that are breathtaking from afar.

Sceniov was born is Siberia, Russia but grew up in Moldova where at a young age he began his artistic exploration. His early creative expressions often came in the form of ceramic figures portraying Russian characters and scenes from everyday life. He eventually turned to experimenting with oils and watercolors, over time, oil painting on canvas became his preferred form of art. Although Sceniov was incredibly passionate about his art, the heavy economical situation of Russia at the time prevented him from making a career out of painting. In search of a better life for himself and his family, Oleg moved to Toronto, Canada in 2001. He believes Canada has offered him the freedom to finally devote himself to the pursuit and evolution of his art. He considers his artistic journey to be one which never ends but continues to change, develop and mature as he steadily pushes himself to a greater standard.

Sceniov’s robust subjects radiate color and boldness and give the impression of physical weight, a trait that is surely a product of his early ceramics practice. When viewing his works, a gradation from dark to light often becomes apparent. For the artist, this transformation reflects one’s passage through life, the struggles, and hardships we go through to accomplish goals and achieve happiness. His paintings seem to share this experience with us, uncovering their own histories as they reveal their cracks, scratches, and imperfections.

Ludmila Curilova

Ludmila Curilova

Artist

Ludmila Curilova is an artist in the fullest sense, her paintings allow us to catch a glimpse of the world through the lens of her personal life and creative mind. Her artistic imagination draws on the ornamental nature of illusory Theatre, princes’ fantasies and fairy tale settings. Within her beautifully rendered paintings, warm, rich colors glow with an almost magical essence.

Artistic exploration has always been an integral part of Curilova’s life, ingrained deep in her Eastern European roots. Born in Moldova, she grew up in an environment infused with creativity. Her mother was a ballerina for Moldova’s National Theatre of Opera and Ballet and her father was a theatre set designer and scene painter. He taught Ludmila basic painting skills and instilled in her an understanding and appreciation of color. Her ability to capture the emotional depth of women stems from hours spent watching her mother dance and perform. She has succeeded in retaining these characteristics in her paintings today.

“Painting has always been important to me. It acts as the magic mirror through which I share my perception of the world. The unspoken statement in my work is that inside every woman is a princess.”

After formal art training at the University so Repin, Curilova moved to Moscow and began to exhibit in notable galleries in Moldova and Russia. In the early stages of her career, her works were in popular demand despite severe economic turmoil in her homeland. The artist soon gained international recognition and today her works are included in prominent collections through Germany, France, Israel, Canada and the United States.

Curilova left Moldova to move to Canada in 2001. This journey is reflected in her work and influenced by every personal experience and discovery. Her carefully developed technique involves a combination of brushes and palette knives to produce a multi-layered canvas, juxtaposing shiny and matte surfaces, this is at once simple and complex.
