  • About Me: Be inspired by the high-energy art of award winning artist, Jandre.

    An emotional artist, the influence of the Impressionists on his Representational style is evident from his limited pallet of colours, however, it is to Kandinsky that he looks for his inspiration where objects depicted arises out of pure emotion.

    In this focus on form and colour, he asks questions of the viewer to see beyond the mere representational to the emotional signal contained in clusters of line and colour, reinforced by ridges of light made possible through his technique of painting with his fingers, imparting his emotions directly onto canvas.

    Traveling extensively, his material is taken from his environment, dominated by his work as a humanitarian – currently with the United Nations in South Sudan - in post conflict, emergency response, and in the fight against HIV/AIDS.
