Éric Nado is a sculptor whose work focuses on urban relics from Quebec Canada. Eric graduated with a Bachelors degree in Philosophy and of Visual Arts in the late 90s and began his career in Montreal, Canada. He was one of the first tenants and administrators of the Lézarts Coop, the city’s first visual arts housing, and workshop cooperative, before moving his family and workshop to Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, in 2007. His artwork pays tribute to a collective industrial past and exudes and inspires, a sense of nostalgia. Through sculpture-assemblage, Éric is a storyteller interested in labour and memory. His artwork transforms and reorganizes certain objects to reveal other possibilities through their forms or intended functions. Éric is widely recognized by his peers and is notably featured amongst the artists accredited by the Quebec Ministry of Culture’s Integration of Arts and Architecture Program since 2010 (Commonly known as the 1% project). He has artworks exhibited in Montreal, California, SCOPE New York and Art Basel Miami, among others, as well as completing public art space commissions as an accredited artist in Quebec Ministry of Culture’s Integration of Arts and Architecture Program.
