Inspired by cinema, photography, music and literature, Andre Monet has a natural connection and sense for the current society and his contemporaries. His signature conceptual assemblage of text texture and colour exudes eccentricity and empowerment of its time, exemplifying the characters and personalities of its icons. Born in Montreal, Monet studied graphic design at Laval University while exploring other mediums in fine art. He worked in fashion and advertisement before he dedicated himself to be a full time artist. Monet explores a variety of mediums such as mosaic, collage and acrylics, more recently; he’s focused on the portrait. But not just any kind of portrait: blending collage of old newspapers and books, painting and varnishing, the traits of his characters are recreated with such precision that one might see a realistic photography arising from a distance.
With much success over the years, Monet’s work has been exhibited in Paris, London, New York, Seoul, Singapore, Miami, Toronto, Montreal, Dubai and Hong Kong.
