Born in Montreal, Guy Hamelin has been exploring artistic composition for over 12 years. Photographer by trade, he was recently asked to photograph the works of other painters. His contact with both the paintings and their creators made him want to touch the materials and play with the pigments.
One day, lying on a park bench, he had a vision— he was gripped by vibratory images of rippling circles and exploding colours. This was enough to launch Hamelin into an exploration, both physical and chemical, of mixtures, colours, expansions, blends and vibrations. He learned to coexist with the laws of physics in order to bring his ideas to life.
“I like to mix art and physics, to explore freely, explore, and push my limits... My creations are deeply introspective, and are inspired by spontaneous insights, vibrations, colours and especially the circle. When I touch the subject, I nd myself in a meditative state where I let light, memories and healing energy transpose itself onto my canvas.”
At the very heart of his artistic creation lies a desire to create harmony through shapes and colours from different spiritual belief systems—chakras, prana, aura, meditation, and healing and harmonizing colours. Each work embodies the very essence of these vibratory energies.
Nicknamed “The Ripple Effect”, the intense movement that brings Hamelin’s works to life resembles the ripples made by a stone thrown into water, and echoes the water in the human body, a source of both life and vital energy.
For Hamelin, this artistic connection with the infinite power of the circle is only a premise of a great adventure. He sees himself traveling the world, meeting new cultures, and drawing inspiration from the largest temples and their rituals, pushing his exploration of vital energy even further.
