Yannick Fleury (AKA Yanook) was born in Ottawa, Ontario Canada in 1978. His hundreds of works are presented in collection worldwide.
To him, art is a partnership between design and color. He uses these aspects to create images in which the process takes precedent. Nothing is more exhilarating than spreading paint over the canvas with large, expressive strokes. He combines an abstract, decorative style with contemporary influences.
His work is a process of creation as well as investigation. Nothing is hiden on the canvas, but to express the nature of beauty and to reveal the discoveries made during his investigations.
He works with layers of colors, thickened or beveled over a textured surface. Traces are left by assorted mark-makers via straight lines and random structures. Yet it is the artist's eye, which seeks to prevail - telling the hand to add that last brush stroke which makes it all happen.
