A Canadian has won the eighth Biennale internationale de gravure contemporaine, it was announced Monday in Liège, Belgium by the biennale's five-person jury.

Ross Racine, a Montreal native currently living in New York, triumphed over 58 artists from 24 countries with a digital drawing from a series titled Fictional Suburbia.

While there's no cash prize, the win lets Racine mount a solo exhibition of his work next year at the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Liège.
