Vermillion is mainly a portrait and figurative painter. His passion for painting started since he was 13 year old. He took classes of art and painting workshops in high school then he studied hydro-physiotherapy, his curiosity for alternative medicine has lead him to migrate to Canada to study Chinese medicine, he graduated in 2015 to become a registered acupuncturist and RMT.

During all this period his passion for art has never subsided, he exhibited at Art Fair (metro convention centre) and at few other local galleries in Toronto.

Since 2014 his interest for painting portraits has became tremendous, he started taking courses, reading and participating in workshops (most recently with Casey Baugh) to learn techniques from classical to modern times.
His approach today involve the usage of classical techniques to present an esthetically contemporary looking artwork.
