Bertrand, Pierre Joseph

Joseph Pierre Bertrand is a contemporary artist from Quebec whose works combine elements of street art, graffiti, comics and children's drawings. The artist first studied architectural drawing which gave him great experience with structure and composition. These studies also made it easier for him to understand the decomposition of conventional art.

Influenced by the father of abstraction Vassily Kandinsky, the neo-expressionist movement, the new fauvist movement of the 70s and 80s, and by the naive art of certain American artists. These influences have allowed the artist to free himself from the acquired structure and the dogma of aesthetics imposed by advertisers and other contemporary influences. With acrylics and various mixed mediums, Joseph Pierre Bertrand applies color directly to surfaces without restrictions or limitations.
