West End Gallery Victoria is pleased to welcome Sacha Barrette! Sacha has been delighting collectors in our Edmonton location for over three years, and we are very excited to bring his work to our Victoria clientele.
Sacha obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design from Université du Québec à Montréal in 1982 and went on to work successfully at several advertising agencies. Having also worked teaching private art lessons, Sacha’s love of painting intensified, and he made the leap of faith to devote himself entirely to painting.
Inspired by his travels across North and South America, Sacha’s colour palette is a rich combination of deep ochre, burnt orange, rich burgundy, and vibrant blue. Enticing viewers down familiar alleyways and tranquil landscapes, Sacha’s paintings offer a vibrant invitation for your eyes to travel throughout the canvas.
Graff's mastery of mixed media is evident in his dramatic paintings that seamlessly weave together the opulence of metallic leafing, the subtlety of transparent colour glazes, and the sleek finish of high-sheen resin. This chemistry of materials breathes life into his canvases, crafting a dance of depth and luminosity that invites the viewer to explore every inch.
We invite you to step closer, let your eyes wander, and allow your mind to engage with the elemental forces that inspire David Graff's extraordinary art.
