Painting, Booth 908

BRENT MCGILLIVRAY PHOTOREALIST PAINTER   Born in Wakefield, QC. I pursued a degree in Architectural Technology from Algonquin College in Ottawa, printmaking at the Alberta College of Art and a Fine Art degree at the Ontario College of Art.  I am a member of the Directors Guild of Canada and continue to work as a set designer and art director in the film industry in Toronto.  During my travels and armed with a camera I photograph images of urban and rural landmarks such as roadside restaurants, motels and abandoned buildings. I am always looking to find that rare hidden gem.   My photographs of these vanishing landmarks inspire me to preserve them on canvas.” “Neon Art” dominates this year’s collection.
