what critics are saying

In front of Lisa's artwork, I felt a deep emotional impact, which strongly remarked the fact that this artist is called to be one of the most important and inspiring names in the history of our contemporary art world.

Francisco Torralba - Art Consultant, Spain

Lisa Levasseur will walk you back in time with an introduction to the next Renaissance in Art. She is bringing a re-creation of the world in her new art form that combines new techniques, colours, forms & expressions that rival the Ancient Masters. What Michelangelo introduced in the 16th Century (vivid colours & three dimensional art form) and Leonardo da Vinci created in the 17th Century (combination of art, science & technology) Lisa Levasseur will introduce you to something extraordinary in the 21st Century.

Robert Stewart - Collector, Italy

The Art of LJLevasseur, is a type of art to observe in silence. An art which brings the viewer to reflect on the world and it's concepts. Her works are of considerable critical/cultural interest. Works that analyze the world and project the visions of the aritist. Visions that, very often, shout their truths.

Salvatore Russo - Curator, Italy

It is rare to find an artist with the conceptual scope of Lisa Levasseur. Throughout her dedicated and avantgarde approach to artistic production, she has managed in just a few years to introduce entirely new features to the realm of abstraction in art, operating though to distance herself from the most academic approaches that were conducted throughout the 20th century. Her work is not innovative because it follows the rules of abstraction, rather it is innovative because it goes one step beyond and introduces bold and dynamic ideas of technical and conceptual fusion. Such approaches are admirable when they are implemented successfully as the horizons of artistic production are broadened, and our collective culture is promoted to new heights

Thomas Lioutas - Art Critic, Greece

This new three dimensional art proposed by Levasseur, with the recycling of acrylic colours, embraces the concept of "Recycling" as a strong and valid solution for a more liveable world. Her propostion goes deeper, through a complete new ethical vision, amimated by a pleasant optimism that only people that have been through real sufferring can share and understand. This is also a powerful message for her public and the stylistic choices are fundamental to understanding the originality and uniqueness of Lisa's art that is strongly appreciated by curators. Through anioconic material aepects or neutral surfaces, singular appearances can result in circular creations, as a sudden blooming of vital entities, recalling inhospitable context or not natural that hide a profound sense of life. The sense of divine, nondenominational and pantheism, seems to slightly shape Lisa's art, pervading some spiritual connotation within her.

Silvio Ricciardone - Art Critic, Italy

Lisa Levasseur’s Art is intentionally and wanted formula that can be identified as “creative anarchy” expressing the intention of freedom and desire to create her own space in the art world without any sort of doctrinal paradigms coming from other influences. Mainly trying to offer the world her own vision, achieving the development of a movement coming from an accurate recycling procedure, that can be recognizable and impossible to copy. The main trademark is the accurate research towards the development of a dynamic vision that is extremely full of energy. This abstract and informal way of art is surely talking about the future, that tests human kind and also forms a certain evolution that can be categorized and included in a perception known and defined as “future expressionism” that offers a key on existence that is still unknown and not precisely identified. In the pieces, we can perceive a centripetal force that is strongly related with the universal dimension of the world but also the internal cosmos of the artist. The visual pleasure of the pieces, which requires attentive observation, has a reflection on the present that is now about the future. The unique and creative technique used, allows the artist to play around with the meaning of the piece and the composition attracts the audience with the touch of the emotional cords integrating feelings and emotions from both sides all as one.

Elena Gollini - Art Curator & Journalist, UK

Lisa has a deep understanding and connection with nature, through observing the energy she has with horses. She uses her art to express her thoughts on life, nature, and social conditions. Her intention is to help people understand what they may be overlooking, ignoring, or sacrificing in life. This positive message conveys itself in all of her pieces, demanding a satisfied and loyal following.

KALIKA HOSPITAL - Nepal

In a Land Where They Believe in The Beauty of Life... This story touches our team member Martina Merelli. Her uncle, Mario Merelli, was a well-known climber who devoted his all life to reaching the top of the highest mountains and do good in this world, especially in the land of Nepal, where he felt home. He sadly passed away in January 2012 due to a climbing accident in the mountains of Lizzola, Italy. However, his spirit is still with us as back in 2008 he and his dear friend Marco Zaffaroni believed in a project for the development of a new hospital in Kalika, a small village in the land of Dolpo, accessible only on foot and through a trekking of 3 days. This hospital was officially opened in 2011 and it now needs continuous help funding its operations. It has now become a fundamental and crucial location for the whole valley, and many communities now get access to health care. It costs about $52,000 a year for it to work but it has saved many lives and Marco is still keeping the memory of Mario alive by keeping this dream a reality. For that reason, we would like to donate proceeds to join the efforts made through the years and help contribute to its mission in the Merelli Family Name.

NAPOKEKI - which means key to life

A School Focused on the UN Sustainable Development Goals... Help a Maasai school in Tanzania, where a friend has been teaching at an orphanage for children living with or affected by HIV, AIDS. In 2011 she met Loshiro Ole Mbarnoti, who invited her to visit a Maasai village and help in building a new school. Beyond the needed curriculum, the Nengiloriti Maasai Village (Boma) is in crisis need for running water, electricity and basic sanitation. With their nomadic life changing, the Maasai would like their children to have equitable opportunities for employment in Tanzania but can see the world rapidly advancing without them. They worry that their culture and way of life will be lost to that advancement around the globe. Five years later and the school is now built! They've created a curriculum that blends both the Maasai heritage culture and Tanzanian curriculum. The school honors indigenous ways that the Maasai have developed over their long history. The first step in creating equity is to bring the rich learning from the Internet into the school, infuse curriculum with Maasai traditional values, and focus on; 21st Century Skill development, language and entrepreneurial spirit.

Stollery Childrens Hospital

Advancing Excellence In Childrens Health Care... A place that has touched many friends in LJL's home town, giving them hope and saving lives every day. The Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation gives the sickest kids the best chance, to live a long and healthy life. 2001 marks the official beginning of the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation. But it was a long journey reaching this point, with generations of concerned and generous citizens paving the way to ensure the best pediatric care in our region. The story begins in 1978, when the Northern Alberta Children's Hospital Foundation was established to advocate for a children's hospital in Edmonton. In 1992, the name was changed to the Children's Health Foundation of Northern Alberta to more accurately reflect the role in supporting regional Child Health program. The next seven years saw the Foundation's work touch the lives of kids from across Canada benefiting from the Child Health program's specialized services. It was during this time that Bob and Shirley Stollery provided a generous donation that would be the catalyst for a dedicated children's hospital.
