Born in Montréal, Canada, Daniel Bilodeau received his BFA from the Ringling College of Art and Design and his MFA from the New York Academy of Art. He also studied at Studio Art Centers International, Florence, Italy. The recipient of several honors, including the George Sugarman Foundation Grant and the Leslie T. and Frances U Posey Foundation Scholarship, Bilodeau has exhibited in galleries and museums throughout the country and abroad. The Terra Foundation of American Art recently awarded Bilodeau a summer residency in Giverny, France.
Daniel Bilodeau’s painting and mixed media works bring abstraction and detailed realism together in a unique and unified whole. Art historical references are paired with image deconstruction and occasional collaged material such as textiles or string. Individual works touch on post-modern life, consumerism and identity. Producing monumental scale works as well as tiny miniatures, Bilodeau blends passages both smooth and textured, graphic and naturalistic in his dynamic painting style.
