Guillaume Parent is the CEO and Cofounder of Gallea, the largest online art gallery in Canada. Born in a family of artists and engineers, he always knew he wanted to build his own venture right here, in Montréal. He graduated from a degree in Automated Manufacturing Engineering at ÉTS where he started what would become Gallea today. He decided to make it his life mission to democratize the access to art while helping visual artists all over the world to finally get the proper recognition and fair share from their work. He is currently on a journey to build the largest art distribution network in the world while disrupting an industry in need of innovation.

Art is a huge industry that hasn’t evolved a lot. Gallea is helping transform it and it’s cool to see what Guillaume and his team are building. I hope that you enjoy the conversation!
