Alex Garant (Canada), Queen of Double Eyes, studied visual arts at Notre-Dame–De-Foy College just outside Quebec City. After graduating in 2001, she ultimately settled in Toronto, Canada. She decided to truly commit to her passion for Arts after suffering from a heart attack in 2012, changing forever how she would see the world. Her alla prima oil paintings offer a graphic quality combined with traditional portrait techniques. Garant uses patterns, duplication of elements, symmetry and image superposition as key elements of her imagery. Alex has shown works all over Canada and the United States as well as Portugal and Australia; she has been featured in publications like Beautiful Bizarre Magazine, Supersonic, Hi-Fructose Magazine, Juxtapoz Magazine, My Modern Met, The Huffington Post, Mashable.com, Buzznet.com and her story was recently told in a mini TV Documentary on CBC.
