The artist - Awol - THE ART OF TRAVEL

The Artist


About Me : the short story


Hi, I’m Alex. I’m a designer, art director, and artist based in Montreal.  I also have a pretty serious travel addiction, but I guess there are worse vices to have 😉

For me, travel and creativity go hand in hand: my curiosity leads me to travel, and travel fuels my creative output. For most of my adult life, I’ve been dividing my time between working with amazing clients like Cirque du Soleil, Madonna and many others, and traveling the world for inspiration.

In 2018, I decided to merge my love of art and travel, pouring all of my creative energy into Awol, a lifestyle brand offering unique, contemporary designer keepsakes inspired by my travels.

With this blog, I’ll be sharing behind-the-scenes glimpses of the destinations, stories, inspiration and creative process behind each Awol collection, from vision to production. Here is where you will find glimpses of beautiful world destinations, creative inspirations from around the globe, and my artwork process.
