Véronique Besançon

Born in Marrakech in 1959, to a French father and a Russian-Hungarian mother, Véronique Besançon adopted Montreal by heart in 1997. She devotes herself to innovative practices in contemporary art. Self-taught artist, she is on a personal journey exploring human complexity and transferring it into a pictorial universe. It is from this perspective that she applies herself through an expressionist abstract art. Her work is exhibited in Canada, the United States, Morocco, Brazil and Europe.

She has been exploring the amalgamation of pigments in a free gesture of pictorial abstraction. As Colors and words draw her reflection, she creates universes that establish a dialogue between her characters. They reflect places, present moments, releases taken, developed as the beginning of stories, bringing out the human essence. She documents her artistic journey through collections of paintings and poetry.
