BIOGRAPHY
Born in Saguenay Lac St-Jean Quebec Canada in 1965.
Sacha left his native region for Montreal, obtained in 1982 a Bachelor's degree in graphic design from the University of Quebec in Montreal and worked in the visual arts field for numerous advertising firms. He taught private painting classes until he decided to devote himself entirely to his art.
He has traveled throughout Canada, The United States, Latin America and France, rebuilding his palette of colors and reaffirming his style. Currently he resides in the Quebec countryside where he found not only the colors he had experienced in his travels, but also the joy of painting
He works with color in such a way as to keep its original purity, thereby giving the subject its unique shape, texture and light, all applied "almost flat". Hence, the colors are allowed to express themselves.
