Yves Tessier

Yves Tessier (b. 1955) is a Canadian-born artist who maintains studios in both Montreal and New York City. He uses casein paint on aluminum and wood to create flattened narrative scenes of situations and characters that have been sourced from real-world observation, television and the internet, and his imagination. The paintings range in tone from being humorously erotic and sensual to meditative and quiet.
