Paintings by Lévi

Lévi Soulodre was born drawn to artistic pursuits. Growing up on an acreage just outside of Saskatoon, Lévi immersed himself in the joys of adventuring outdoors, cartoons and comic books, and everything the imagination brought to him.

Drawing all the way from pre-kindergarten to university, Lévi’s works have been featured on the front cover of Francophone youth arts publication 'le Clin d’Oeil', the Mendel Art Gallery, and PAVED Arts. He only started painting in 2013 when he was introduced to the works of artist Jean-Michel Basquiat, Canada's 'The Group Of Seven,' and Prairie Indigenous artist Ernie Scoles. Since then, Lévi has not stopped painting, citing the discovery of their art as epiphanic. He is equally inspired by his peers’ and friends’ creations.

Lévi co-curated his debut one-day-only show, “Hidden Gems,” at PAVED Arts Saskatoon in August 2016.

Lévi elucidates his style as “Totus,” meaning a totality of influences: all experiences, people, artistic styles, media, and realities are considered in forming each unique work. Visionary William Blake crystallized Totus’ essense, claiming “I myself do nothing. The Holy Spirit accomplishes all through me.”

Commissions welcome. I'll paint anything you want!
