Boudro

When Art Goes ‘Pop’ and ‘Boom’

Pop Art

Boudro once painted the scenic splendours of Charlevoix. Today, it’s New York City and its cultural effervescence he is passionate about. More specifically about Pop Art, its iconic superheroes, comic strips and advertising logos.

Boudro was born in Sept-Îles in 1967, but has lived in Montreal since early childhood. Many years later, he set-up his studio on the island’s South-Shore. From there, his works travel all around the world.

Working part time as a tourist guide during the 1980s, while studying in industrial design, is what led him to relish the visual ebullience of Times Square’s advertising billboards. Amazed by the Cartesian plane of the Big Apple, with its straight streets running at right angles, the dynamic visual experience made him appreciate the harmony and equilibrium of various juxtapositions of symbols and logos arranged to form a mosaic with a central target, shoutout to Jasper Johns, that catches the spectator’s eye. Hence his works are highly expressive. Abonnez-vous au contenu de notre site internet pour lire ce texte. Subscribe to our Website content to read more
