Gabriel Dubois’ studio and palette exist in the alley, at home, in the backyard and occasionally (as Color found him, scribbling on napkins almost a decade ago) at local watering holes. Around the time when this magazine was just getting off the ground, Gabriel had transitioned from graffiti artist to experimenting with new forms and assemblages as part of the Beer Bench Gospel Collective that included the likes of Jonny Cloud and Ben Tour. The collective eventually went their separate ways and Dubois ventured out into the world. Taking his affinity for alternate spaces on the road, Dubois has since expanded his practice beyond the script of graffiti to include: sculptures, structures, paintings, works on paper and print. We tracked Gabriel down in Berlin where he has been living on and off for over a decade, to see what he’s been up to since Vancouver. It turns out quite a lot.
