Some of our works are strictly abstract, while others merge with the

In the process of creating our abstract artworks, we employ epoxy resin that is infused with diluted fluid pigments. This unique material reacts to heat, enabling us to achieve seamless transitions between colors, resulting in captivating gradations. As the resin cures, it releases oxygen, unveiling myriad intricate details that hold significance within our compositions. This abstract approach intends to blend harmoniously with figurative elements, which are later digitized.

Stephanie utilizes Procreate to craft the figurative illustrations in our artworks. Women often serve as the primary subjects of her creations, while additional elements such as hands, eyes, and animals are incorporated, adding depth and intrigue, particularly when bringing the artworks to life through animation.

Through the digital merging of abstract and figurative elements, we are able to seamlessly integrate physical materials into a digital composition, resulting in a more organic and natural aesthetic. This transposition technique is what sets us apart as artists, bringing forth an essence that is both unique and captivating.

About Baku

Baku was founded in 2018 in Sherbrooke. We are a duo comprising Stéphanie Lamontagne and Dominique G. Lemire.

Our passion for art emerged at an early age. In our teenage years, Dominique ventured into the world of music while Stephanie pursued painting and drawing courses. Under the guidance of Mr. Daniel Victor, owner of the gallery «Le LAB,» we began to professionally engage with the visual arts as a duo.

We have been fortunate to collaborate with local painters, 3D artists, and photographers from Canada and abroad, as well as esteemed artists including Dirty Robot, Mc Monster, Archan Nair, Aeforia, Nikolas Tower, ANIMVS, Jf Lemay, and many others. We firmly believe that the exchange of ideas is essential for our creative growth.

Embracing our digital era, we have successfully showcased our art on the international stage. We are grateful for the opportunities that have come our way and continuously explore new paths to evolve our artistic practice.
