Danaé Brissonnet is an international artist from Quebec (Canada) who specializes in murals, illustrations, masks and puppets.
She has worked in North, Central and South America, as well as in Europe and Asia, creating colorful and fantastical works of art inspired by local traditions. By creating imaginary worlds for the viewer, his work invites reflection on the power of symbolism, myth and metaphor.
Brissonnet’s art establishes connections between her work, herself and the audience with whom she interacts. Most importantly, the artist seeks to integrate herself into communities so that she can tell the stories of people, their country and their culture.
Wherever she creates, there is a good chance that Brissonnet will give a workshop to share her experience. She places importance on working with children to allow them to paint their own stories with the materials they have at their disposal.
Leaving a colorful trail, her art gives a sense of accessibility as she visually transposes her story and the stories of others.
MU and OMHM continue their partnership of more than 12 years by installing art at the André-Grasset housing project in the Ahuntsic-Cartierville borough. This is the first mural created by Québec artist Danaé Brissonnet. Here she was inspired by ideas such as community, childhood, nature and origins, themes that came up in meetings between the artist and residents in the housing project. Two days were devoted to workshops with children; she incorporated their drawings of their family and their dreams into the mural.
