Raphael first exhibited his work in a gallery in 1998 when he was 18 years old. Since then, he’s been represented in Montreal, Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary and Baie St-Paul. He actively participates in solo and group exhibitions across Canada.
You can find his work in numerous public and private collections.
Raphael indulges in this language which allows him to apply drama to his subjects through contrasting and bronzed light, sometimes mysterious and diffused, with rich and complex textures. All of these details are what gives his work such a timeless feel, classic and contemporary.
