Gerardo Labarca

 The career of Gérardo Labarca, a Montreal painter, is quite atypical. He indeed progressed successfully and brilliantly in the restaurant industry in Montreal before embarking on the adventure of painting a few years ago. His talent quickly caught the eye of numerous visual arts publications and various exhibitions in Canada and the United States.

A self-taught portraitist, Labarca seeks to capture the soul and essence of the characters he chooses to bring to life on canvas. The attention to detail and perfection is present while appearing light and carefree. He enjoys illustrating the intensity of the feelings that characterize his subjects, whether they are timeless icons or loved ones. He is still experimenting with certain media and remains enthusiastic about the horizons that open up to him!
