About the Artist

Kyle L. Poirier is a Kelowna-based artist, graphic designer, husband, and father of two.

As a painter, Kyle works primarily in acrylic, playing with layers of colour underneath moody washes, using a palette that mixes earthy colours with jewel tones. His subject matter is diverse, but many of his paintings have a familiar, whimsical, illustrative quality. Selling his paintings mostly online, his work has been purchased by patrons across Canada, the US, Germany and England.

Since 1999, Kyle has been working in Kelowna’s arts community as the graphic designer for the Kelowna Art Gallery. He has designed numerous exhibition catalogues as well as newsletters, advertisements and related material. He also freelances, working with other arts and non-profit organizations on various projects.

Kyle was the recipient of the award for Graphic Arts at the 8th annual Okanagan Arts Awards in March 2015.
