About the artist
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.
