Zerbé, Alexandre

b. 1974
After having completed an Art History certificate at Université de Montréal, Alexandre Zerbé went on to obtain a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Concordia University.

Stemming from photography, sketching and drawing are at the heart of his work, creating a distinctive and personal atmosphere. His cityscapes hint at passages, amplified by a strong perspective. His main interest is to maintain continuity through the figurative lyricism of his acrylic work; the scenes he depicts often contain some miscellaneous object that seems to have been deliberately planted there, which leaves much room for interpretation. Zerbé quite enjoys emphasizing the “set-up” feeling of his paintings, as well as their playfulness.

His works are found in many private collections throughout Canada and the United States.
