Date of birth : 1972, Saint-Hyacinthe (Qc).
Training: Cordo is a self-taught man who started painting by coincidence. His passion
for arts has emerged when he first met the artist Lysanne Pépin. But it is more
specifically Toulouse-Lautrec’s work of art that stirred the artist. It took Cordo ten years
to find his own style. He now presents his fourth collection: Elles Fluides. In his
paintings, Cordo tries to better understand the modern women: Professionals at dawn,
mothers at twilight and mistresses at night. According to Cordo, taking the time to do
things is a luxury that current women can’t afford. In his collection, Cordo allows women
to travel from Porto to the Bordeaux’s coastlines. Being passionate about wine tasting, he allows himself some fantasies in presenting colorful paintings.
When one gazes upon a Cordo painting, one is transported into a universe that is tinted
with softness and voluptuousness. The atmosphere in Cordo’s paintings is accentuated by the various mediums he uses; such as the glossy varnish, the insertion of words, and the wood pieces. All of these elements are there to enrapture the viewer. His women are sometimes charming, mystic, or imbued with desire.
