BOUDRO

Born in Sept-Iles, Québec, now living and working in Montreal, BOUDRO is however a true New Yorker at heart. Energetic, vibrant and full of primary colors his works reflect the agitated lifestyle and feverish atmosphere that is found in the Big Appl
e: an urban ballet under the crushing weight of advertising. Boudro is a pop artist through and through, counting among his
influences Andy Warhol, Keith Haring, Roy Lichtenstein. His style artfully marries his pop roots to the surrealist through the use of unexpected juxtapositions and dreamlike composition. Art critics and collectors find the fantasy and humor complementary to the exuberant and vitalized graphic of brilliant colors of his works.
Today, Boudro spreads his passion through more complex dense and detailed works which symbolize the movement, the wild rhythm of the city life, the stress, the crowd. He creates perspective and depth effects; volumes and colors both interact so
as to express the chaos, but always with a touch of humor.
His latest inspiration came from one of the most ubiquitous things: the post STAMP. For many years art masterpieces where used for illustrating the stamps. Now under BOUDRO’s masterful brushstrokes the STAMP becomes a work of art on its own. The disproportion of the elements and perspectives found in his STAMPS provokes in the observer’s mind the impression of being totally involved in the dynamism and vitality of the city BOUDRO so much loves.
