whittling away

Meet Maskull Lasserre, a Canadian born artist whos flare for intricate detail and subject matter combined with specific placement and use of crafts has caught the attention of art buffs globally. His merging of the macabre with wood, found objects, and various non traditional mixed media is almost like a backwoods homage to HR Giger's work. Born in 1978, Maskull attended Mount Allison University in New Brunswick, where he received his BFA in 2001, and then on to Concordia where he got his MFA in 2009. Between the time span of his degrees, he was already receiving major city commissions in Canada, guest lecturing, and piling up group shows. His first major solo exhibition was in 2008 at the Karsh Masson Gallery in Ottawa, Ontario. He is currently represented by the GALLERY PIERRE-FRANCOIS OUELLETTE ART CONTEMPORAIN, in Montreal, Quebec.
