Ashleigh Vaillancourt is a multimedia artist and filmmaker based out of Vancouver, Canada. She graduated from Emily Carr University in 2009 with a Bachelor of Media Arts in Animation and has shown her pieces in film festivals and galleries internationally.
Ashleigh’s most recent work is an interplay of analog painting and generative digital art, painting many of the foundations of her pieces and then digitally layering and animating them. Ashleigh is interested in the current paradigm shift in art as it becomes increasingly seen and shared through digital screens. She believes digitized analog artworks take on a second life in their online consumption, separate from their real world counterpart.
