Bio
Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Christian Pérès Gibaut started his journey in the arts in 2011, after a long career as a Project Manager. Over the last decade, he has completed several public art projects in South America and Canada and built a remarkable body of work, primarily in painting and mosaics. In his practice, he uses abstract compositions to explore philosophical and linguistic ideas that challenge our relationship with meaning and the structures that make it possible. He has received grants to explore concepts such as Identity, Memory, and Immigration; the Limits of Language and Possibilities of Meaning; and the Dematerialisation of Mosaic. He holds a bachelor's degree in Social Sciences and Humanities and is a co-founder of Red Knot Studio, which specializes in mosaic installations and site-specific art. He lives and works in Edmonton, AB, Canada.
