Originally from Canada, Mr Desbiens is now based in Brisbane and considers it his mission to create artworks that initiate dialogue with the viewer, sparking an emotional reaction.
“As I have progressed over the years with my painting,” he says.
“I have turned towards the essential, back to basics – beauty. To recognise and appreciate external beauty, is to reconnect with our own, a small but important step towards a better world.”
