Edith Lebeau grew up in Beloeil, a little town of Quebec, Canada. She was raised in a creative environment; her mother and father are also artists. This helped her to explore her own imaginary world and inspired her to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts at l’UniversitÃˆ du QuÃˆbec â€¡ Montreal which she completed in 2005.
As a young girl Edith developed a fascination for superheroes and villains and we continue to see its influence in her work. The women she paints have a strong look and even if they sometimes don’t seem to know what is going on, there is a strong energy that comes from them. Â´The look is the most important thing in my work; it’s the way the character tells the story to the viewerâ€¦Âª Edith paints these women (superheroes, villains, goddesses, nymphsâ€¦) and makes them tell their own story through their expression and the emotion they exude. The story is often blurred to encourage the audience to make it their own. Â´ I like to look at my paintings and not get everything at once. I let the character question meâ€¦ Âª
Edith’s works often refers to Greek, Roman and Celtic mythologies, movies and fairytalesâ€¦
