Kieran Valde is a visual artist based in Winnipeg, Manitoba. His work is focused on the development and process of painting. His images are figurative, often the representation of people, animals, and landscapes. Valde's process is not linear, often painting multiple images on the same canvas. He will remove, add, and adjust until the image is settled and the painting asks nothing more from him. In his work representational references from art history, photography and life become re-contextualized within new images and relationships that are composed. Valde presented a solo exhibition at The Edge Gallery in 2018. In 2019, Valde curated a group exhibition, Le Salon, also at The Edge Gallery. He has participated in various group exhibitions and member showings in Winnipeg. His work can be found in private collections across North America and Europe.
