Hey there art lovers! We at Carmel are all about celebrating local art, which is why we recently invited some amazing local artists to our space for Art Jam, a day of creative expression using our products. Check out Montreal-based artists like Hoar, Hozek, Ek7, Grills, Kor, Beyung, NB, and Paynt creating their masterpieces.
We were super excited to welcome Beyung to our art studio - a gifted artist from Montreal! As the cameras rolled, Beyung got to work with our Paint Markers, Chalk Ink Markers, Bottle Markers, and Metal Markers, and the results were nothing short of spectacular! Beyung's creative flair was on full display, working wonders right in front of us.
Have you heard of Gene Pendon? If not, you'll certainly recognize his breathtaking large-scale art pieces! Take a stroll down Montreal's Crescent Street, and you'll find one of his most iconic works - a mural of Leonard Cohen, created in collaboration with El Mac. We were so lucky to experience Gene's art up close and personal at Junior's Filipino restaurant, where he created stunning art inspired by tribal tattoos using Carmel's paint markers.
Alex Grilanc (GRiLS)
Alex Grilanc (GRiLS) hails from the beautiful Blue Mountains of Australia and now calls Montreal home. A classical art school graduate, GRiLS loves to express his creativity through graffiti and murals of all sizes. We were absolutely delighted to welcome him to our studio to create some stunning pieces using our products.
We were thrilled to welcome artist Audrey Lachance to our studio! She brought all the vibrancy and energy to her bold, modern artwork. As she used our products to craft her signature flowing lines, we were in awe of the beautiful creations that emerged.
La Marquise de Ville-Émard
The Marquise de Ville-Émard, a self-taught painter and artistic make-up artist, uses Carmel products to create fantastic artwork on camera. We had a blast watching her transform a dinner plate, a watering can, and a pair of sneakers into beautiful works of art.
Waxhead and Cryote
Carmel had the great opportunity to watch Montrealers Waxhead and Cryote, two multi-media street artists (and buds since they were 17), create one of their beautiful murals on our back door. They even showed us how Carmel's paint markers and crayons can apply vibrant and long-lasting paint to many different surfaces!
