Patrick Biggs was one of Canada’s top slalom skiers, with several wins on the European Cup, top 10 finishes on the World Cup and World Championships, and represented Canada at the Olympics in Torino and Vancouver.
After Patrick hung up his race skis, he opened a painting studio in his hometown of Ottawa, Canada. He uses a variety of techniques taken from his schooling in arts, engineering at Dartmouth College, and his experience ski racing to bring truly unique paintings to life. He’s had immediate success in the ski world with his deeply textured, impressionist, sometimes semi-abstract pieces.
His art pieces were featured at the Pion Gallery in the Village of the great mountain of Mont-Tremblant, Québec. Biggs art has been getting a lot of attention on social media, Ski Mag Canada, CanFund, Nick Zoricic Foundation and Canadian Television. Some of his most famous pieces include one of Canada’s Gold Medalist Alexandre Bilodeau, Erik Guay’s piece called Eiger and recently a piece called Ski Flyers that went up for auction at to raise funds for Alpine Ontario.
