Ep.25: The meaning of Fake it till you make it with Audra Auclair

By Iva Mikles •  Updated: Oct 09, 2017 •  Interviews

Audra Auclair is a Canadian artist whose work has spanned across many mediums. She has been exhibited both locally, as well as internationally in Australia and America. Although she has achieved a Graphic Design degree, graduating with honors, she instead specializes in exploring the surreal and beautiful female form with her transcendent fusion of fine art and illustration. She is praised for bringing awareness to current issues through a blend of pop art and fantasy. Her YouTube videos focus on art, mentality, and life with a very honest and calm atmosphere.

I’ve always loved drawing. I was hugely inspired by ‘Sailor Moon.’ It was the first piece of Japanese animation I had seen as there wasn’t much here in Canada. It gave me goosebumps every episode and it really inspired me to draw more. I didn’t know in particular what route I was going to take in the art field, but I always knew that it was something to do with drawing.

For the past four years, Audra has been working with her partner, Lopi, on developing an imaginative fantastical world and characters for their upcoming graphic novels, “Chiara” and “Nen”.
