Jeffrey and Michael Bisaillion were born in upstate New York and have lived in various locations such as San Diego, Austin, Raleigh and Jacksonville, FL. They are currently based back in their hometown in New York. The Brothers have been producing art for over 20 years in many genres. Jeffrey has always connected with the surrealist and has been painting surrealist for many years. Michael has always connected with symbology and thematic elements in pop art. In 2010 Jeffrey started his “Modern Simplicity Series” which was a total deviation from everything he had done previously. He set out to develop a series that was extremely modern and that he believed was the perfect fusion of art and design. From that series came the “Modern Visage Series” which utilized the idea of the cut out or cut through 3D space of the “Modern Simplicity” combined with homage to iconic people or brands that we all admire and hold deeply. As the Brothers worked together on the “Modern Visage Series” ideas began to emerge involving Jeffrey’s love of the surrealist and his keen eye towards modern art and design and Michael’s love of symbology and the digital art process. Every idea and style of art the Brothers have a passion for would come to fruition and pave the way for the creation of “the POP Collection”.
