HéroiK'Art was born from Thierry Seurre's meeting with the French poet Céline Lassalle in 2016. Since that time, they have been working closely and regularly, despite the distance that separates them, each inspired by the work of the other, according to a theme of common predilection: Heroism, hence the name HéroK'Art. Their duo aims to create works of art combining forms and words, colors and reflections, to generate a subtle awakening of the forces of the Spirit that lives in each of them.
Each canvas is accompanied by a poem. You may view and read these bilingual poems by visiting the page https://www.tseurre.com/heroik-art and clicking on each image.
After obtaining an architectural diploma in Paris in 1988, Thierry Seurre immigrated to Quebec in 1998. For a few years, he worked as a set designer and illustrator in cinema. In 2004, he met author-lecturer and artist Pierre Lassalle with whom he discovered the technique of "Imaginative Art". He created this new way or art in early 1990s and recently renamed it “Sophianic Art” (from the Greek Sophia, wisdom). It combines meditation with the study of spiritual knowledge in order to create art which is carrying spiritual healing forces.
From 2004 to 2008, he participated in workshops using only water colors until 2009 when he discovered The Academy of Fine Arts of Montreal. In 2014, with all his skills and experience, he decided to make art his main activity.
In 2016, he met the French poet Céline Lassalle. The themes which she addresses such as Love, Beauty, Freedom, Heroism, Virtues, the Divine, and Feminism, inspired the artist. He then realized that poetry such as Celine's can bring a refined dimension to pictorial creations and how much it can enhance it. This discovery astonished him.
The artist has won numerous awards and received abundant tributes.
