Andre Serin is an award winning, Canadian born artist and educator based in Vancouver.
Since receiving his Master of Fine Arts from the University of Victoria, he has continued to develop his practice through local art events and self-directed projects. Andre has taught for the University of Victoria, Emily Carr University of Art and Design and often volunteers as an art instructor at a local preschool.
Working out of a studio in South Vancouver, he continues to develop his unique cloisonné-like painting technique. Working from digital to analogue, his pieces often start with a carefully manipulated digital image, which he then transfers to wood panel by drawing with silicone and acrylic caulk. This creates texture and separations in the work, which is then animated through the generous pouring of acrylic products.
His work explores the boundary between representation and abstraction through observations of our physical and emotional environments.
Andre Serin has exhibited his work in Toronto, Seattle, Victoria, Vancouver Island, the Sunshine Coast and Vancouver. His paintings form part of public and private collections across Canada, the U.S.A and Europe.
