Biography from Cutter & Cutter Fine Art Galleries:
It is written that "the essence of life emerges with every stroke of Desjardins’ brush, every texture and nuance, transforming the empty canvas into a statement about the mysteries of life, love and our universe itself.  His thoughts are made real and hidden faces break free from the chaos of life, giving an almost serene and tranquil feeling, while muted and subtle colors coax one into a dreamlike state of viewing the mysteries that Desjardins has revealed."

Born in the small Canadian town of Hauterive, Quebec, Canada, on the north shore of the Saint Lawrence River on March 2, 1964, Desjardins earned his bachelor’s degree in Art from the University of Quebec in Montreal.  André’s apparent passion for life and the stories told in the faces of humanity developed early and have continued to evolve.  Today he devotes his time, energy, and passion to translating emotions into images, which he hopes will be of timeless beauty and humanity.  He describes his work as “Visual Emotionism”; a style (simultaneously expressionist and humanist) that fuses the figurative with the abstract and tells the stories of those he has encountered.

With his art, Desjardins wants to reach out to touch the soul as it awaits the emotional reaction of the viewer for its completion. Like the conductor of a great symphony, Desjardins uses his hands to add both emphasis and nuance to his works, in an effort to make each a representation of humanity energized by the emotions of the artist himself.

As Desjardins’ paintings continue to evolve, he strives for a melding of the old and the new, Da Vinci with the Jackson Pollock. 

Artist's statement:
Art is important because it is a universal and timeless language… it makes me feel immortal… to leave something that will last. It’s my way to communicate that kind of emotion.”
