Playing with the interaction between positive and negative space, strong colors on neutral backgrounds, Canadian artist Virginie Schroeder creates pop art portraits and iconic pop culture imagery that defy traditional pictorial representation. She works from the ground up, adding several layers of thick acrylic paint on canvas until she is able to carve out colorful, undulating portraits filled with emotion as well as recognizable dynamic objects filled with movement. Her work is playful and poetic, constructing the famous visages of notable public figures and familiar popular objects. One step closer and her work is abstract. A step back and an iconic likeness appears.

Virginie Schroeder is an innovative artist based in Quebec, Canada. Her paintings are made to inspire new artistic visions while impressing with their stunning technicality. When a face, an animal, a landscape, or any other subject is removed from its linear structure, it acquires a completely different form, a new identity, and dimension. One does not recognize it at first sight; it emerges as the very process of observation. It is here that the magic occurs, as the viewer consciously discovers a work of abstract character in vivid color which plays upon the tension between the figurative and the imaginary.
Virginie Schroeder seeks an unstructured, new, and yet popular vision, and hopes to awaken our senses in the search for her works. Her one-of-a-kind artworks have been exhibited and collected worldwide, including Hong Kong, New York, and Los Angeles.

An expert in both color and composition, French artist Virginie Schroeder started her successful artistic career after moving to Canada in 2009. She creates textural pop art inspired paintings that are both abstract and photorealistic, while also being surprisingly playful. Schroeder's artworks are made to inspire new artistic visions, impressing with their stunning technical execution.
Schroeder’s work begins with a realistic sketch which is then deconstructed to her signature striations. Working meticulously, she applies layer upon layer of acrylic and oil paint with a syringe. She reworks each line with a knife to create precise lines. Depth is created by the variation of color and finish.
Her work has been exhibited internationally in Canada, France, UK, Hong Kong, and the United States.
