Sanae Kushibiki was born in Japan.
Jacky Quetard was born in Orleans, France.
They met in London in 1974 and together they create some very unusual and beautiful artwork.
Their artwork is classified as naïve. It has elements of retro art and humor.
They work on the same canvas together, complementing each other’s style and strength.
Sanae picks the colors and adds the human and floral components of the composition. She loves flowers.
I love her color choices and her whimsical additions to the paintings.
Jacky uses his love of architecture to add mechanical elements to compose the basic structure of the painting. He loves trains.
Their work is highly sought after in Europe and Japan.
