Jeremy Price is a painter who grew up in Ontario and now lives in Montreal. His new home town is the favourite subject of his works. Price accurately transcribes Montreal’s fleeting moments as a way of freezing the time of life that flows too quickly in such a metropolis.
Jeremy Price was born in 1971 and raised in London, Ontario. Upon graduating from the Bealart Vocational Art School he attended the University of British Columbia and the Vancouver Film School. In 2008, Price moved to Montreal where he has lived since.
Montreal serves as the major inspiration for his paintings. Their subject matter consists of loose depictions and representations of the streets and neighbourhoods that compose the city. They are unbiased representations of the stagings of the day, of commuting, of living. The images are fleeting moments, snapshots from a life that has a habit of moving too quickly sometimes.
