Eric Gaston Simard

Eric Gaston Simard is an abstract artist working primarily with encaustics. He has been described as a sculptural painter whose work begs viewers to question the delicacy of each finely laid layer as his work often leave the panel and emerges into the room.

Eric’s use of colour and texture pushes the boundaries of painting tradition and asks viewers to leap from the world of the mundane and into their dreams.

His artistic passion comes from creating unique person specific commissions. Recent commissions include paintings for a local dental office as well as a tenth anniversary surprise for a client’s wife.

Eric is recently married to a wonderful woman named Sarah and when not painting, spends his days helping student find their path into Western University.
