ABOUT

GERALD DAVID PEDROS

A Montreal native and London, Ontario transplant, Gerald Pedros is a Canadian artist who has exhibited internationally in countries including Switzerland, Germany, Mexico and Ireland.

When I was sixteen, I realized that most of us live our lives through other people’s experiences, i.e., pop singers, religious leaders, politicians, neighbors, family, etc. Why? Because we do not trust our own judgment. My artwork is a timid attempt to trust my judgment.”
