THE BISAILLON BROTHERS
Jeffrey and Michael Bisallon are brothers. Their last name is pronounced (Bisone).
Born in upstate New York and have lived in various locations such as San Diego, Austin, Raleigh and Jacksonville, FL.
They ...Read more...are currently based back in their hometown in New York.
The brothers have been producing art for over 20 years. Crisp, clean and modern culminated into the perfect fusion of art and design. From that series, came the "Modern Visage Series" combined with homage to iconic people and brands that we all admire.
Together they create many, new, Pop Art inspired works.
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 panel is combined with mixed media, digital photography and graphic design. Paint is flung through the air and drips down the panel and canvas while at the same time incorporating the digital aspects of the artistic form. This philosophy is the cornerstone of their artistic endeavors.
The brothers evoke an exciting commentary on the pop culture of today and the mid-20th century. New technology, iconicism, globalisation and social media are given a modern interpretation. They combine acrylic painting with graphic design, vibrant colors and bold brushwork on both 2D and 3D canvases. All of the pieces are mixed media and incorporate a range of mediums, including canvas, wood, paint, pen, resin, spray paint, digital imagery and even building materials.
It was 1996 and shortly after the brothers moved into a house in Austin, Texas. Jeffrey said to Michael "The walls are bare, we should make some art to hang" the rest is history still being made…
The Red UPC
Under the beautiful, porcelain-like, poured resin surface, the defining conflict of the analog vs. digital plays out.
The Red UPC code on each piece of art glares out at us and distinctly defines the Jbis trademark. Part signature, part emblem,
part symbol, when you see this you know that this is a Jbis art piece!
