The Bisaillon Brothers
Jbis Art is the vision of Jeffrey Bisaillon and his brother Michael Bisaillon. The brothers were born in upstate New York
and have lived in various locations such as San Diego, Austin, Raleigh and Jacksonville, FL. They are currently based back in their hometown in New York.
Jeffrey is a self taught artist that has painted for 20+ years. He has painted in many genres through the years, but his earliest connection was with the abstract. Jeffrey has now joined forces with Michael who brings 20+ years experience in the electronics, computer, and Digital fields to the table. the POP Collection is the culmination of Jeffrey's experience as a professional artist and master craftsman and Michael's experience in computers and digital design.
As new technologies emerge and become available artist's must utilize them while at the same time respecting the artistic methods of the past. The brothers have created a process where acrylic painting on both canvas and hardpanel is combined with mixed media, digital photography, graphic design and digital design. Paint must still be flung through the air and drip down the panel and canvas while at the same time incorporating the digital aspects of the artistic form for the POP Collection to come together as a whole. This philosophy is the cornerstone of the Bisaillon Brothers artistic endeavors.
The POP Collection acts as an intermediary between iconic imagery and culture as Jeffrey's last Modern Visage series did but goes back to his roots with the abstract. The digital age is upon us and our art will then reflect this, the POP Collection has arrived!
It was 1996 and shortly after the brothers moved into a house in Austin Texas Jeffrey said to Michael “The walls in this house are bare, we should make some art to hang” the rest is history still being made...

The Red UPC
With the increasing commercialization of everything branding has become ubiquitous.
The red upc code on each art piece glares out at us and distinctly defines the Jbis trademark.
Part signature, part emblem, part symbol, when you see it you know this is a Jbis Art piece.
Soon even our species will be branded via microchips and nanotech will evolve into picotech
much as the computer gigabyte will become the terabyte and then petabyte.
Somewhere in between we exist and such is the need for the red upc...
