Born in the Saguenay Lac St-Jean in 1965, Sacha Barrette now lives and works in Montreal. After obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from Université du Québec à Montréal in 1982, Sacha Barrette worked for a number of advertising firms and taught private art classes. As his love for painting evolved, he decided to devote himself entirely to the pursuit of his passion.
Sacha’s travels throughout Canada, the United States and Latin America greatly influenced his art practice, transforming his palette to include an impressive array of ochre, burnt orange, burgundy and vibrant blue. The paint is applied generously to the canvas and the colours are left pure in order to give each subject its unique shape, texture and light.
The artist’s innate curiosity led him not only to journey through new lands and territories, but to explore a variety of styles and themes. Whatever the subject, Sacha’s paintings are executed with equal confidence and passion. Today, his work is exhibited in galleries throughout North America.
