Cynthia Coulombe-Bégin

Coulombe-Bégin’s artworks portray specific parts of the human body, especially large close-up portrayals of the mouth and eyes, which are depicted with great contrasts of color and chiaroscuro. These symbols are constructed with specific gestures and drippings in which Coulombe-Bégin portrays an abstract universe full of movement, symbolism, and eroticism.

Coulombe-Bégin grew up in Quebec City where she earned a Bachelor of Visual Arts in 2006 from Laval University. Coulombe-Bégin began her professional artistic career at the Marius Barbeau Museum with her first solo exhibition in 2006. She has continued to exhibit in galleries in Miami, Quebec, and Los Angeles. Coulombe-Bégin’s works have been acquired by numerous private collectors in Canada, the United States, Europe, Brazil and Australia.
