BIO

Benjamin Altmejd is a young Canadian artist in the making, currently residing in his hometown Montreal. His minimal post-pop paintings are recognizable by the use of a vivid palette and hard graphic lines. Inspired by dutch artist Piet Parra among others, his style is mainly influenced by early 2000’s cartoon artists.

After graduating and obtaining his Bachelor of Commerce in 2016, he decided to follow his passion and is currently pursuing his studies in visual arts at UQAM.

Developing and improving his style everyday, Benjamin is creating his own universe throughout his artwork where everything is bright, colorful, and happy. Despite his paintings’s edgy and sexual subject matter, Benjamin distances himself from clichés with his cute and humorous cartoon style.
