William (Bill) Market was born in Montreal into an anglophone family in 1949. He spent more than 40 years of his life in a mental institution, only to get out at the age of 65. He has been participating at the workshops of the association Les Impatients since 2002, where he devotes his time to a wide range of art, including beautiful musical creations. His inspiration centers mainly around two themes; depictions of weavings and landscapes.

The first comprises beautiful quilts on paper that Bill invented himself with the help of a mysterious equation, of which he is the sole proprietor. He starts these pieces by tracing a complex system of lines with a lead pencil, carefully counting each line, followed by him filling in the gaps with pastel colored markers or crayons to create psychedelic and geometric gems.
Market’s landscape art works in a similar fashion. With precise borders first drawn in lead, he then fills in once again shapes with different colors. The contrasting colors lend a geometric beauty to nature. For a man who spent a large part of his life in an institution, the lush landscapes are a reminder of a beautiful vacation in Western Canada, which represents freedom.

Confortable, magnifique et supporte une belle initiative

J’ai deux de ces couvre-visage et ce sont les plus confortables que je possède (ajustement et matériel). Ils sont aussi très beaux. De plus, c’est un achat qui contribue à l’emploi local, permet de valoriser des artistes avec des troubles mentaux et de contribuer à un programme de soutien pour ces artistes.

Great breatheability & Very Stylish

Very comfortable. Have also received great comments on its look. Elastics a little tight for me, but still OK

Absolutely gorgeous!

We love these masks. The only reason I couldn’t give them five stars is that the elastics are a bit tight and can’t be adjusted. A very small problem though for the beauties they are.

Absolutely Beautiful silk mask

Absolutely Beautiful silk mask, I am very happy & proud to wear this mask knowing it’s for a great cause.
One of the elastic ear loops was too long, luckily I am good with the sewing machine, fix it myself in no time
