Karine Giboulo creates colourful miniature worlds in which depictions of reality and flights of fantasy mingle. Her intricate sculpted scenes use pathos and humour to comment on the human condition and issues such as globalization,  consumerism and the environment. The use of bright colors and the personnification of animals give her work a childlish and naive imprint which belies the often serious subject matter. The characters in Giboulo’s narratives maintain dignity in difficult circumstances and her critique of society and human nature is couched in playfulness.

Karine Giboulo has participated in solo and group exhibitions, both nationally and internationally. She has been featured in a multitude of publications about her work. Her work is included in Montreal Museum of Fine Arts’ collection, 21C Museum’s collection, Bibliothèque et Archives Nationales du Québec, Canada, RBC – Royal Bank of Canada and Private collections in Belgium, Canada and France.
