Geraud CLEDJO, by his artist name Cgiscar Art, is a self-taught painter born on 19/12/1990 in Cotonou and living in Montreal. From an early age, he was cradled in the artistic world with a father and brothers who were very good at drawing and in love with art. But it was not until 2020 that he decided to take his first step into the world of art and two years later to fully embrace this universe by stopping his professional career. An assumed and very conclusive decision, with several exhibitions at Sherbrooke, Toronto, Montreal without forgetting his works which are sold all over the world. We can say that the daring techniques that he appropriated for the realization of his paintings were well received by the public. Due to his art based on his emotions, his connection with nature (visible and invisible world), and the facts of society, he transports us to his universe and makes us see his world through his works.

Passionate and self-taught, my works are the fruit of my emotions, which means that I am particularly connected to them. My achievements stem from what I live, from those I have dreamed of, or from the messages I want to convey. I paint with acrylics and although my methods for painting are not the most common, I also integrate objects that inspire me, either that I buy or for the most part that I recycle. Always with music in the background, it is my state of mind while I paint, which is transcribed on my works. Many times, I had people skeptical about certain paintings, but when the latter come closer and learn the stories behind each work, they are pleasantly surprised, and for me these are the best compliments I can have at this stage of my career.
