About Nathalie Chiasson
From the beginning of her career, Nathalie Chiasson gets her inspiration from an old method of coffee wash. Through the complexity of the artist's works of art, the unexploited technique is brought up to date.
Using impastos, which give her work an almost sculptural aspect, the artist puts her subjects on canvas by superimposing alternately rich layers of acrylic and coffee. The numerous steps and drying time between layers allow her to work on several paintings at a time. She adds a personal touch with golden acrylic and a thick black grout made up of pure coffee which gives off a delicious aroma. The gleaming glaze and varnish give the works of art a richness which enhances the raised details and gilt.
Nathalie Chiasson has developed a unique style. Her art, inspired by internationally flavoured timeless themes, has brought her instant success all over the world.

Art lovers can appreciate the artist's canvases with all its senses. She says candidly: "I want them to enjoy my artwork, and go as far as putting their fingers on it, just as a child."
