Hello ! My name is Arthur Desmarteaux and I’m a visual artist from Montréal, Canada. On this website you will be able to see some reproductions of the works I did in the past years. If you have any questions or suggestions, I invite you to write an e-mail to me and it’s going to be a pleasure to answer you. You can also leave messages in the guestbook.
For those of you who are wondering why I use a pseudonym, I would answer that it is because I want to stay anonymus in front of my creations of good taste (which are frightening me sometimes) and also because it brings a mysterious aura around the artist and his work.
You can consider me as a pure neo-schtroumphist. For now I am the only member of that new art current that is the neo-schtrouphism, but you have to know that newcomers are always warmly welcomed in this current that is privileging the collective work. To know more about the processes that leads to my paintings, you can read my artist statement..
I made a large colorful mosaic for the Pointe-aux-Trembles library in Montreal. This public art project titled "The Great Gathering" was made in collaboration with Allison Moore and is now permanently installed. It is located at 14001 Notre-Dame Est (Upstairs)
I'm a member of ARPRIM, artist run center dedicated to the promotion of Print Media.
You can see pictures of the puppets I did for La vengeance de Popol, a play which was performed during the 16th Fringe Fest in Montreal. Just click here :
