Jason de Graaf was born in Montreal in 1971 and lives and works in Quebec, Canada. de Graaf uses photographs and infuses his works with detail and clarity that give them a separate life and presence. He describes his approach:
My paintings are about staging an alternate reality, the illusion of verisimilitude on the painted surface, filtered so that it expresses my unique vision...Many of my paintings are about the relationship of light with reflective and transparent surfaces and my journey to understand those qualities and convey my sense of wonder and intrigue over them.
These amazing paintings definitely make me feel a sense of wonder and intrigue.
