Hervé ALEXANDRE - Visual Artist

A smooth voyage to an exotic world of imagination

My Bio

    Born in Rouen, France, Hervé Alexandre excelled in the arts from a young age, however it was not until he focused his studies on portraiture and painting at Toulouse, France, and over to Ottawa, Canada from 1981 to 1984 that he truly refined his skill and style. Hervé prefers to create realistic works in irrealistic media and colors. His material use range from pastel, charcoal, acrylic, oil, and pen on board or canvas and incorporate collages as well.  He is fan of large portraits but also explores mail art or ephemere art.

    Hervé Alexandre’s portraiture depicts various subjects, largely drawn from his travels. Alexandre has dedicated collections to Mongolia, China, Latin America, Africa and Contemporary Aviation Art. Alexandre has been creating art for 40 years and has participated to exhibits in more than 30 countries worldwide.
