BIOGRAPHY

Beau Bernier Frank is a French-American surrealist painter. Beau lives his work and is dedicated to his artistic process. He is inspired, organised and expressive, and this flows through his work. His life as an individual and as an artist are inseparable entities as Beau lives out his practice with specific consideration to all areas of his life. This intention resonates in his emotive, highly detailed work, where Beau realises the fruits of his labour through succinct stages that may be described as inspiration, organisation through to realisation; “First…I keep my eyes open (for) signals from the ether. The second stage is much more reasonable. I organise my days…the third stage is all about sharing my craft. I photograph my work. Share my work in progresses…connect with other artists.”

Beau’s work is distinctive, with his collections including collaged, surreal portraits draped with patchworks of landscapes, singular subject moody landscapes and general expressionistic portraits. Yet all his various works share a single truth; that Beau clearly sees the world through a lens where beauty is defined by story, feeling and context as opposed to mere aesthetic.
