Labrona completed his art studies at Concordia University in Montreal. Coming from the world of urban art, Labrona painted on skateboards, canvas, trains or walls of buildings. For almost twenty years, this artist has painted under the name of “Labrona”. In an article about the artist, RJ Rushmore describes Labrona’s work as having a beauty and energy that is the product of a rare combination of determination and talent. The imagination of Labrona draws as much from the culture of Street-Art as from that of the history of classical art. His works are filled with a duality between the old and the modern, clarity and darkness. This artist allows himself to mix bright and vivid colors with the dramas and heaviness of the scenes he represents. RJ Rushmore describes this phenomenon as “a synergy between a classic beauty and the everyday tragedy of everyday life”.
