Dawn Dudek is from Winnipeg, which is located in the prairies in the middle of Canada; she is currently based in the south of France. She grew up in the suburbs, but when she was 18 she moved to Toronto to study at the Ontario College of Art. She has since worked with award-winning directors and animators in broadcast design and animation.
Dawn paints beautiful split-frame images of stills from obscure films, such as “Secreto” to “Brick.” The images are somehow both poignant and melancholy. She was featured this past May at the Cannes Film Festival as the first painter to ever be able to exhibit their work at the particular theater.
