A Bachelor of Visual Arts and of Philosophy, Éric Nado has been perfecting sculpture-assembly since 1998. The work of this Quebecois artist is represented by galleries in Montreal and in California and has been commissioned by many private and public companies for various needs and purposes over the years. In 2015, his work was selected by Montreal’s COA Gallery to be showcased at Scope New York and Art Basel Miami.
Nado’s contemporary industrial sculptures tell a story, one of our collective past. Made of recycled, metal, factory-salvaged and nostalgia-filled parts, the artwork pays homage to our roots’ industrial past.
As per his recent reconstructive art series, Nado takes strong objects, imprints of our collective memory, such as Sewing Machines and Typewriters, disassembles them and recreates engaging and evocative sculpture art pieces, in occurrence, the Seamstress Series and the Typewriter Gun Series.
