Biography / Sandra Chevrier

Canadian Artist Sandra Chevrier, who received a BA in visual and media arts from the University of Montreal and works from her Montreal based studio, is an illustrator, painter and street artist. By mixing watercolour paintings and comic book collage she creates hyper-realistic mixed-media portraits.  As part of music festival Lollapalooza’s and Urban Nations „We paint the music you love to hear“ project, Sandra teamed up with indie-rock band „The National“ to create a multidimensional mural which sat on the facade of Berlin’s Olympic Stadium during the festival.

Her latest series „cage“ is build upon the idea of women trying to find freedom from society’s twisted preconceptions of what they should or shouldn’t be and do. Chevrier depicts her female figures trapped inside society’s suffocating “Cages” of expectation; held captive by the limitations forced upon them by society and culture, and ultimately revealing how corrupt our perception of beauty has become.
