Linda Delahaye

B. 1980, Canada. Lives and works in Paris, France.

Linda is a Canadian-born artist who currently resides in Paris, France. With a focus on representational painting, her works explore the themes of beauty, sensuality, and intimacy. Through her detailed compositions and suggested narratives, Linda aims to communicate emotions, experiences, memories, and the wonder of the human soul.

In each of Linda's paintings, the subject tells a unique story, conveying the emotion of that moment in time and the world surrounding them. Her art is a perfect balance between real and imagined, showcasing the human condition with warmth, empathy, and familiarity.

Linda's artistic approach is grounded in the idea that art is a conversation. Her paintings reflect what she finds beautiful in her life, exploring the female form with gentleness, grace, and sensitivity. She sees her work as a peaceful oasis amidst the chaos of life, offering a space for contemplation and reflection.

When staging her models, Linda treats them as performers in a play, creating a striking juxtaposition between the vast scale of her paintings and the modest scale of the finished product. This approach allows for a more intimate connection between the viewer and the art, making the experience of viewing her work all the more powerful.

Predominantly featuring women, Linda's subjects are a celebration of their agency, individuality, and bravery. Her paintings showcase the strength and resilience of the human spirit, inviting the viewer to connect with the human experience on a deeper level.

Linda is a visionary artist whose work reflects her passion for exploring the beauty and complexity of the human form. Her paintings are an invitation to engage in a conversation about the human experience, offering a space for contemplation, reflection, and empathy.
