Xavier Landry is a painter who lives and works in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Xavier explains his work by saying, “My work is a kind of religious interpretation of Canadian and American pop icons with a hint of dark humor, decrepit pity and paranoid social engagement delirium. Just like a drunken ride in the woods with a Six Flags abortion queen, eating plastic, petting dead pets. The images that I create are often inspired by current events and by what I could call « social sickness ». I mix up themes in an interpretation delirium and the result tells a story. The magic is that themes seem to stick well together and keep a truly serious meaning through humor and stupid looking characters.”
