Jbis Art is the vision of Jeffrey Bisaillon and his brother Michael Bisaillon. The brothers were born in upstate New York and have lived in various locations such as San Diego, Austin, Raleigh and Jacksonville, FL. They are currently based back in their hometown in New York.
The brothers have been producing art for over 20 years. Jeffrey has always connected with the abstract and while Michael has always connected with symbology and thematic elements in pop art. In 2010 Jeffrey started his “Modern Simplicity Series” where he set out to develop a series that was the perfect fusion of art and design. From that series came the “Modern Visage Series” which utilized the idea of the cut through 3D space of the “Modern Simplicity” combined with homage to iconic people or brands. As the brothers worked together ideas began to emerge involving Jeffrey’s love of the Abstract, and Michael’s love of symbology and digital art. Every idea and style of art the brothers have a passion for would pave the way for the creation of the “the POP Collection.”
The brothers created a process where acrylic painting on both canvas and hardpanel is combined with mixed media, digital photography, graphic design and digital design. Paint must still be flung through the air and drip down the panel while also incorporating the digital aspects of the artistic form for “the POP Collection” to come together as a whole. This philosophy is the cornerstone of the Bisaillon Brothers artistic endeavors.
It was 1996 and shortly after the brothers moved into a house in Austin, Texas, Jeffrey said to Michael “The walls in this house are bare, we should make some art to hang” the rest is history still being made…
THE RED UPC: With the increasing commercialization of everything branding has become ubiquitous.
The red upc code on each art piece glares out at us and distinctly defines the Jbis trademark.
Part signature, part emblem, part symbol, when you see it you know this is a Jbis Art piece.
Soon even our species will be branded via microchips and nanotech will evolve into picotech
much as the computer gigabyte will become the terabyte and then petabyte.
Somewhere in between we exist and such is the need for the red upc..
