André Monet’s Ladies

I walked into The Opera Gallery at the Bal Harbour shops and fell in love with the mixed media portraits of pop culture icons by André Monet. I was delighted to discover the artist is a fellow Canuck and that he is also represented by a Canadian gallery in the artist’ native Montreal. The bits and bites of newspaper type, crossword puzzles and maps layered with the timeless images would make more fabulous foils in a traditional interior.

While he portrays many fabulous icons, my favourite pieces by (the other) Monet are the black and white ladies:
