Born in Québec city in 1986 this young artist was discovered by the creation of large-scale sculptures in cardboard. She studied at Concordia University in visual arts before doing an exchange program in Los Angeles to further her knowledge in ceramics. It’s only after graduation and doing an artist residency in Russia that she appropriated the street art influence in her work. By using cardboard, material that she finds in abundance in the street she can create large work on the spot in every part of the world she goes.
It’s in 2012 that her carrier started after she organized a show called Transmute for the Montreal’s winter Festival. This first step in the big league lead her to her first solo show at galerie d’art Yves Laroche in Montreal and to participate to multiple festivals in the city. In the past year, Vallières has spent much time outside of Canada, showing notably in The United States, France and Germany. Now Laurence attending No Limit Street Art Borås, Sweden.
– Laurence has amazed me all the way since I first came across her work. The fact that she reuses cardboard found on the streets or in waste bins is really cool. Her work has many dimensions to me and the way she combines a deeper meaning with the epic artwork and the funny look of her pieces impresses me a lot. I´m glad to bring another way of interpreting street art in a more sculptural form and I´m really happy to have Laurence coming to No Limit Street Art, says curator Shai Dahan.
– I think that Laurence really will add a new dimension to No Limit. She doesn´t see her self as a street artis, but her pieces are made of material solely from the streets. To me she fits our line up for 2015 very well and her work is amazing, says project manager Stina Hallhagen.
