“ My work forces people to think and question themselves about the ‘need’ of eating and exploiting animals in our society”

We talk to Chantal Poulin Durocher about her vegan art and the future
Please don’t kill my baby

I started painting when I was 15-yearsold, and I had my first solo show at the age of 18. I always knew I would be an artist — my grandmother was a painter, and I admired her art so much. After graduating from art school, I tried different work here and there, but nothing was really right for me. When I was 22, I decided to paint full-time and make a living out of my art.

Having been vegetarian for more than 30 years, it was only about 10 years ago that I decided to become vegan. One day, I saw a post on Facebook saying that there was more suffering in a glass of milk than in a steak. I was shocked! I decided to do some research on the subject and discovered that, yes, it was true. The same day, my husband and I stopped consuming dairy products. A few weeks later, we watched Earthlings, we became completely vegan, and have been ever since.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to our May issue. It’s undeniable that one of the best ways to advocate veganism to non-vegans is through food. There are so many wonderful and talented chefs creating mind-blowing vegan cuisine — the game has totally changed from a few years ago. The options for eating out have exploded, as we see unlikely meat-based chains even offering vegan options, and gone are the days of nibbling on a side salad, as plant-based food rightfully takes centre-stage in many restaurants. But, maybe you live somewhere with not so much choice, what happens then? Well, thanks to the range of brilliant cookbooks and videos available, anybody, no matter their location, can have a crack at a vegan showstopper. Recognising the need to make vegan food as appealing and appetising as possible, our cover stars, Ian Theasby and Henry Firth, created BOSH!, with the sole mission of bringing meat-free to the masses. We caught up with the innovators. Beauty is an another aspect of veganism that is growing rapidly, as cruelty-free, ethical and vegan products become more and more in demand. We rounded up some of our favourite items, brands and bloggers, as well as the ingredients you need to avoid. Finally, we had a really interesting debate this month, sparked by a feature written by Andrew Miles on the topic — is it easier for women to be vegan than men? Find out his, and our readers’, thoughts.
