Bertrand, Pierre Joseph
Joseph Pierre Bertrand is a contemporary artist from Quebec whose works are a cross between street art, graffiti, comics and children's drawings. The artist initially trained in architectural drawing which prepared him for the structure and composition of drawing. This training also made it easier for him to understand decomposition in conventional art.
Influenced by the father of abstraction Wassily Kandinsky, by the neo-expressionist movement, by the new Fauvist movement of the 70s and 80s but also by the naive art of certain American artists. His influences allowed him to free himself from the acquired structure and the dogma of aesthetics imposed by advertisers and other contemporary influences. Among his preferred mediums, we find acrylic and different mixed techniques; Joseph Pierre Bertrand therefore applies the colors directly to the surface, without restriction or limitation.
