Recipient of several international contests and with an exceptional technique, combining art and technology, Lisabel leaves her mark in the artistic trend around the globe. A contemporary and self-taught artistic painter, her paintings now reflect an abstract and semi-figurative style. Her art is bright, colorful, dynamic, always in motion, just like this artist who is passionate and freedom-loving. For nearly fifteen years, she has been known and recognized in the artistic community. She signs unique creations that reach people around the world.

Yago Partal - Zoo Portrait Collection
Partal is interested in “humanizing animals”, this is an ongoing project where Partal creates captivating and surreal images, blending the animal world with iconic fashion and poses. Partal humorously manages to present his wildlife subjects as a believable display of individual men (and occasionally women), each with his own personality and style. By cleverly depicting animals in outfits their human counterparts would likely wear, he imagines all the animals to be just like humans and became a web phenomenon in 2013.

Gabby Garzona - Cielo
A lifestyle photographer, born and raised in Guatemala, Gabby studied in Austria and Spain and is currently based in Montreal. Since a young age at school, she was the official photographer for the school’s newspaper and yearbook. When starting her university studies in hotel management, travelling became an important part of her life and as a secondary effect the passion to capture life in its raw essence evolved.

In 2011 in a trip back to Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, she discovered the seriousness of her passion for the universe of photography and encouraged by her sister’s father-in-law, a well-known professional photographer in his country, she was determined and eager to learn more.

It was then when she enrolled in an intensive photography program at Concordia University in Montreal. And from then on, it just kind of started happening: “I didn’t set out to be a photographer, but I know there’s no turning back and time will never be enough to discover and learn more about it cause I really love taking pictures and I would love to spend more time every day in refining, perfecting and obsessing over this passion.”

We are excited to showcase Gabby's work, as she is also currently a Business Travel Sales Manager at our hotel.

Frank Caracciolo - Reason
Working as an abstract painter, I search my environment for surfaces and compositions relating to my work, architecture, city streets, wall surfaces, and industrial landscapes are where I find movement, rhythm, and reference. I refer back to these images and surfaces when creating my own language in painting.

Jackie Cytrynbaum
A fine art photographer in Montreal, Jackie Cyntrynbaum uses the darkroom, whether digital or traditional, as very important part of the process as it enables her to take an image from its conception to its completion. She wants to communicate to you what she feels- an emotion, a sense of sound, a sense of joy, of sadness, of fear, etc.

Some of her favourite things to photograph, for example, have been underground rail systems and dying flowers. Captured with exquisite sensitivity, Jackie’s photographic images are technically accomplished without ever losing their powerful emotional component. They are unique and provoke in a subtle way.
