"Although a diligent experimenter that also applies a complex assortment of mediums
(photography, video, installation, performance, digital work),
Cerj Lalonde remains above all an extraordinary painter."

"My wife and I have a large home with a large art collection, including a number of paintings by prominent artists.
Invariably, however, when we have guests over, the artist whose work is singled out for praise and inquiries is Cerj Lalonde.
His style is unique, and the effect is quite remarkable."
Dr. Steve Kerr

Cerj Lalonde moves smoothly from the canvas to the camera, from computers to installations,
producing and showcasing an extraordinarily rich and complex body of work created during the last 30 years.
His purpose is to pursue a direct, and, in each case, a different communication with the spectator...

“Our whole house will never be the same again.
It is like our home has "come into its own", like it has found its soul.”

Wow , opening the package you send me was surprise after surprise. First I saw the small "Eye luv you" that my wife
already had framed.
And it is already hanging on a wall in my living room.
Next the Book, just totally amazing. I am trying to find the piece I bought from you in 1986 or 1987,
I found similar already, but not the same one.
And I love the extra piece which is getting framed at this moment.
I am so glad I responded to your offer of being one out of 25 to get "Facing the Sky".
Congratulations and continue the good work.

My husband and I commissioned a piece from Cerj for our home. He was an absolute pleasure
to work with throughout the entire design process. At our initial meeting, he gave us a lesson in art history
and how it has influenced his work. He also let us explore his studio and explained his artistic process.
We were originally drawn to Cerj's Save the World series because of his use of color and texture.
We were drawn to the simplicity of the series and the message it conveyed.
However, there were components of some of his other projects that we were drawn to as well.
Cerj patiently observed our responses and worked tirelessly to create a final product that was absolutely perfect for us.
We feel lucky to have discovered Cerj's work and are extremely excited for the rest of the world to discover it when
his FACING THE SKY project is revealed at Art Basel Miami Beach.

you again so much! Paige likes hers better than the original. I knew she
would. It’s amazing.

Cerj Lalonde incorporates the essential qualities of Life which are air, sun and energy, all expressed
in a vibrant galaxy of colors, dimensions and scope. He juxtaposes the challenges of Life into his composites to
allow the viewer to reflect, appreciate and act! His works are a daily appreciation.
LARRY BEHAR, Attorney at law
"Cerj Lalonde is an international established artist with an extraordinary analytic mind and a irreducible passion
for his prolific and outstanding work ... He embraces his artistic mission with the heart of a Lion ...
His courage in his creative itinerary gained him an irreplaceable place in the contemporary global art world
and a valuable human recognition as one of the most exquisite artist I know..."

I have “Save the earth”, which is my favorite. I have “For a new vision”, also in my living room.
The painting damaged by the move is called “the blue flame”. A little bit of paint is missing.
Someone grabbed the painting before we could stop them.
After creating such beautiful paintings, I’m sure that you are somewhat curious to know how much your
paintings are appreciated and how well they are cared for.
Your paintings have not only inspired me every day, they have embellished the world of everyone who comes into my home.
So, thank you for sharing of yourself with us. You are very much appreciated.
