James Picard’s “The Dark & The Wounded” – Success Story

New Media Film Festival Grand Prize winner (1)

Distinguished Canadian artist, James Picard, is known in the art world for his beautiful, emotional paintings. In 2012, he began his renowned series, The Dark & The Wounded, which can only be described by Picard himself, “It’s about dealing with our issues as individuals, as a society and as a species on the planet. It’s about understanding and healing, and looking at things we’ve been afraid to acknowledge. By facing our reality, getting past our fears and finding freedom, it creates an understanding and compassion for others.”

The paintings from The Dark & The Wounded series were exhibited in a North American tour leading up to a 2015 show in San Francisco’s Alcatraz prison. Throughout the tour, Picard had been filming his shows, which he then put together into a short documentary and submitted to various film festivals, including the 2017 New Media Film Festival. Picard’s documentary, also entitled “The Dark and the Wounded”, was not only accepted into the New Media Film Festival, but won Grand Prize award.

Since “The Dark and the Wounded’s” Grand Prize win at the 2017 New Media Film Festival, Picard’s series has only grown in popularity. He was recently offered $1,000,000 for his Apparitions painting by a Russian collector represented by German art agent, Natalia Ivanovsky. His incredible talent has brought him great success in the art and new media world. Picard was thrilled with his decision to enter the New Media Film Festival, “I am over the moon at all that has and is happening…and to think it all kicked off at your amazing film festival!”
