EDITION 03 : SANTERRE

Santerre is a Montreal-based artist of international renown whose colourful works consist of superimposed images and ideas infused with allegories, satire and depth – works that can be simultaneously dark and light-hearted. A clever, intuitive blend of surrealism, spirituality and social insight is carefully blended into every figurative expression.

”If we celebrate today the 375th anniversary of Montreal it is largely thanks to Jacques Cartier and I wanted to represent him mingling with the icons of Montreal. This is how I have juxtaposed 49 Montreal icons which in its whole offers us an anthropomorphic version of Jacques Cartier.”
– Santerre

“Since the first version of Stikki Peaches I dreamed of seeing on any bottle one of my works. The pinnacle for me was the romeo’s gin. I loved the open-mindedness they had, a local product that promotes local artists. It’s all in their honour, and today thanks to them, that I leave a mark in the history of Montreal with the 3rd edition of romeo’s gin for 375th anniversary of the city”
