Gerald David Pedros
 
Gerald Pedros is a Montreal native who moved to St.Thomas, Ontario, Canada several years ago. Pedros has had exhibitions around the world including Switzerland, Germany, Mexico and Ireland.
 

"When I was sixteen, I realized that most of us live our lives through other people's experiences, i.e., pop singers, religious leaders, politicians, neighbors, family, etc. Why? Because we do not trust our own judgment. My artwork is a timid attempt to trust my judgment."
