Troy Babineau is a Canadian artist with over three decades experience as a photographer and nearly ten years a painter. He enjoys singing, playing guitar, composing songs and writing literature. As an abstract painter, Troy was originally inspired by the famous German artist, Gerard Richter, whose squeegee painting technique he adopted early on in his work.
When it comes to creating art, Troy is forever fascinated by how paint colours blend together and create new colours amongst themselves, while adding new layers on top of one another. He gives much of the credit to the paint itself, as it usually does what it wants to do on the canvas. Troy is merely an intermediary, delivering the forging bond between paint and canvas.
Most of Troy’s canvases are large, spanning 60 x 60 inches, and sometimes much bigger. He takes pride in building his own sturdy stretcher frames of nearly 3″ depth using Douglas Fir wood, and using heavy cotton canvas, for a truly professional finish which stands boldly against the wall and makes a powerful statement in a space.
