Jeffrey and Michael Bisaillon
By Appointment

    space Jbis Art is the vision of Jeffrey Bisaillon and his brother Michael  Bisaillon. The brothers were born in upstate New York and have lived in  various locations such as San Diego, Austin, Raleigh and Jacksonville,  FL. They are currently based back in their hometown in New York.

The brothers have been producing art for over 20 years in many genres.  Jeffrey has always connected with the abstract and has been painting  abstracts for many years. Michael has always connected with symbology  and thematic elements in pop art. In 2010 Jeffrey started his "Modern  Simplicity Series" which was a total deviation from everything he had  done previously. He set out to develop a series that was extremely  modern and that he believed was the perfect fusion of art and design.  From that series came the "Modern Visage Series" which utilized the idea  of the cut out or cut through 3D space of the "Modern Simplicity"  combined with homage to iconic people or brands that we all admire and  hold deeply. As the brothers worked together on the "Modern Visage  Series" ideas began to emerge involving Jeffrey's love of the Abstract  and his keen eye towards modern art and design and Michael's love of  symbology and the digital art process. Every idea and style of art the  brothers have a passion for would come to fruition and pave the way for  the creation of the "the POP Collection"

As new technologies emerge and become available artists must utilize  them while at the same time respecting the artistic methods of the past.  The brothers created a process where acrylic painting on both canvas  and hard panel is combined with mixed media, digital photography,  graphic design and digital design. Paint must still be flung through the  air and drip down the panel and canvas while at the same time  incorporating the digital aspects of the artistic form for "the POP  Collection" to come together as a whole. This philosophy is the  cornerstone of the Bisaillon Brothers artistic endeavors.

"the POP Collection" acts as an intermediary between iconic imagery and  culture as the "Modern Visage Series" does but goes back to their roots  with the abstract and thematic elements. The digital age is upon us and  our art will then reflect this, "the POP Collection" has arrived!

It was 1996 and shortly after the brothers moved into a house in Austin  Texas Jeffrey said to Michael "The walls in this house are bare, we  should make some art to hang" the rest is history still being made...
