L'heureuse double vie de Glenn B. Miller

Daniel Roland, La Métropole.com, 8 juillet 2014

Ce pourrait être un beau titre de film ou d’un roman. Mais c’est aussi la réalité d’un financier et mécène qui accorde autant d’importance aux financement qu’à celui de la cote d’une artiste en art visuel et pas n’importe laquelle.

Le type a la carrure, le look et l’entregent d’une vedette de cinéma. Son sourire est dévastateur. Et si on reprend le cliché de celui dont on dit qu’il mord dans la vie à pleines dents, il en est la parfaite incarnation. Son cellulaire sonne en permanence. C’est qu’il est recherché pour financer des entreprises de tous genres pour toutes sortes de raisons. Glenn B. Miller est président et fondateur de MBG Finance. Il a été huit ans auparavant vice-président au développement des affaires du holding financier au sein du Mouvement Desjardins. 

On l’adorait, et lui a aimé son passage dans l’institution, mais il avait le goût de plus grands défis. « En 2002 j’ai fondé Emergia Capital, une firme spécialisée dans le refinancement des compagnies en difficulté. C’est sept ans plus tard que la raison sociale deviendra celle qu’elle est présentement. » Il s’est constitué un portefeuille en millions de dollars qu’il administre avec le flair de celui qui sait dénicher de belles opportunités. Là où les banques se montrent frileuses, lui il fonce. « Il faut risquer, ne pas avoir peur. Disons qu’avant que j’intervienne je procède à des analyses solides de l’historique de l’entreprise et de son plan de relance ou projet quelconque. » 

MBG Finance est structurée à la manière d’un fond privé qui soutient les propriétaires d’entreprises, les PDG, et les actionnaires de sociétés des secteurs des finances et de la reorganisation opérationnelle, de la disposition d’actifs, de la gouvernance, des fusions et des acquisitions. Son expertise a atteint un tel niveau de respectabilité, qu’il est depuis trois ans mentor et conférencier invité au programme de MBA de l’Université McGill.

AVEC LA MÉTROPOLE

Un concours de circonstances va mettre en contact Glenn B. Miller avec Stéphane Maestro, l’éditeur du Journal Métropole et du Portail d'information citoyen LaMetropole.com. Le financier aime le média et est particulièrement touché par le fait qu’il est un rare Média indépendant dans le paysage, outre Le Devoir. Et il salue aussi cette mission d’être du côté des citoyens et des commerçants aux prises avec des gouvernements et des administrations sans âme. « J’ai donc rencontré votre éditeur, et une belle chimie s’est installée. J’ai eu le goût de m’impliquer, même si mon agenda est démentiel. Mais ça vaut le coût, car l’avenir est prometteur. »  

La première rencontre s’est si bien passée qu’elle a été suivi de d’autres, jusqu’à ce qu’il soit invité à devenir un membre du comité exécutif de LaMetropole.com Car cette dernière est confrontée à des défis nouveaux à l’heure des grands bouleversements en information. « Mon rôle c’est de regarder les attentes de Maestro Média, de s’organiser pour que les rêves deviennent réalité », dit M. Miller. 

LE MÉCÈNE

S’il passe le plus clair de ses journées à lire des rapports financiers et à discuter au téléphone, il a une soupape de passion sous la forme de l’amour qu’il a pour le travail d’une artiste peintre, Lisabel. Il a tellement aimé ce qu’elle fait qu’il en est également tombé amoureux et l’a épousée. C’est lui qui va dès lors devenir son agent et partenaire, et voir à la reconnaissance du travail de sa bien-aimée. Et ça n’a pas tardé. « Ce que je n’aime pas dans le monde des arts, c’est qu’on est resté à une approche d’un autre siècle. 

Les galeristes et les institutions muséales ont conservé la même attitude vis-à-vis des artistes, les exploitants très souvent. Ensuite le mode de mise en marché n’a bougé depuis des lustres. Je suis venu à la conclusion qu’il faut faire changer tout ça ». Et quand il dit qu’il faut que ça change... La preuve, la décoration d’une Lamborghini ou le dessous d’un couvercle d’un piano Steinway. Pour chacun de ces objets de luxe peints, ça donne de la valeur ajoutée. Car la galerie Lisabel sur la rue Ottawa, dans le quartier huppé de Griffintown, est devenue un lieu couru. 

On y organise régulièrement des réceptions d’entreprises. Et celles-ci adorent l’idée d’y tenir des coktails dans un décor aussi flamboyant. Car les toiles de cette femme à l’immense talent, et d’une rare beauté elle-même, ont toutes quelque chose de sensuel, peu importe la thématique choisie. Des couleurs vives mises en relief par des vernis brillants.  La cote de Lisabel a pris son envol comme le souhaitait le mécène. De sorte que posséder un Lisabel dans son salon est maintenant devenu un symbole de réussite sociale. 

La Métropole est honoré de compter dans ses rangs la venue de  Glenn B. Miller et profitera à plein de ses conseils avisés. Avec lui, votre média d’information citoyen LaMetropole.com envisage des lendemains prometteurs. Et pour notre mentor c’est un univers qui l’enchante car même en finance, la communication est essentielle. 

 

Lisabel Lamborghini Art Car

Snapdowntown Toronto, Juin 2014

Internationally-acclaimed urban artist, Lisabel along with Grand Touring Automobiles and InterContinental Toronto Centre presented Lisabel's Lamborghini Art Car at the InterContinental Toronto Centre. The sleek and sexy Lamborghini was front and centre in the lobby for all to view, as were a number of Lisabel's other original art works. A partnership that was four years in the making finally came to fruition in May with the added launch of the Lisabel suite, a 540 square foot luxury suite exclusive to the InterContinental Hotel in Montreal and now in Toronto. The cocktail reception at Azure followed by a private tour of the suite was an added bonus to an exclusive evening of mingling, networking and schmoozing with an artist that invented a technique, not used by any other painters.

Bling on wheels: Quebec artist Lisabel turns lambo Gallardo into a rolling canevas

Wheels.ca, May 30th 2014

If your Lamborghini is down a quart on glamour, better speed-dial Lisabel to put the spit back in the polish. Lisabel Filitrault is a Quebec artist as gorgeous as any flame-throwing Italian sports car. But when she paints a Lamborghini — and she will for $10,000 — she suits up like an F1 driver. There’s the safety suit, the eye protection and, essential for her, the respirator. She assaults the canvas with colour from spray guns, aerosol cans, and big, wide palette knives, ladling on paint in aggressive globs. Like the Lamborghini, her art has a lot of horsepower. Related: Chris Brown ruins perfectly good Lambo with horrible paint job Related: Then there was the singer who did this to his Bugatti The artist’s reputation and star power attracted the attention of Lamborghini Uptown Toronto in Maple. They thought the two powerful brands, Lisabel and Lambo, were made for each other, says Shawn Morris, vice-president of operations for the GTA. “Her art is extreme, exciting and sensual — the same pillars found in Lamborghini,” he explains. “And we share the same clientele.” Lisabel’s mission was to create an audacious canvas to wrap around a Lamborghini Gallardo Squadra Corse. “I have a gift, I can see the finished product,” she says, snuggled up to the Lamborghini Art Car in the lobby of the InterContinental Hotel in downtown Toronto. The hotel already owns some of Lisabel’s art, so placing the Lambo in the lobby to put a sparkle on happy hour seemed logical. The Art Car has been making victory laps since it debuted at the Toronto auto show in February. “It’s a way to personalize a car and make art come alive, says Glenn Miller, Lisabel’s husband and business partner. The minimalist lobby is a provocative stage for the Art Car. Slashes and drips of paint capture the angst and excitement of the city. One side of the car reads masculine, the other side, with vivid eyes and big red lips, is all woman. “I like that sort of tension,” Lisabel says. On the walls above the car are the original paintings. They were recast in vinyl and then wrapped around the Lambo like a second skin. Everything is for sale: $15,000 each for the paintings, $10,000 for the wrap and $289,000 for the car. There’s been interest. “From anyone famous,” I ask. “I don’t care if they’re famous, as long as they’re rich,” smiles Lisabel. Shoes with soul.If Lisabel’s Lambo is a bit too rich for your blood, you can still look the part in a pair of Piloti driving shoes. The Italian shoe company attracted such famous clients as David Letterman, Jay Leno and Ron Fellows before ceasing production in 2012. The line is scheduled to relaunch this summer, after the company was rescued by a group of Canadian car enthusiasts. Fellows wore them while racing, but the shoes gained a following because they were fashionable and comfortable. The relaunch includes the new Luxury line — a premium leather driving shoe made in Italy with a rubber sole patented after vintage Dunlop racing tires. The sole is manoeuvreable around pedals but still protects the driver from vibrations. In the Lambo Art Car photo on the cover, model Jerald Bezener is wearing Piloti’s $240 Competizione shoes. Other lines will range from $150 to $450. Go to piloti.com for details. Sculpture from salvage Lisabel isn’t alone in her quest to turn luxury cars into objects of art. Consider the latest project to land at the door of the Guild of Automotive Restorers, an antique and classic-car restoration company in Bradford. “The customer’s Porsche Carrera GT had a sudden departure from the road,” says Guild co-founder David Grainger. The customer is in Los Angeles, and the car is in pieces. “He wants us to make a sculpture with the remains.” The ideas are already spinning in Grainger’s mind: flame patterns, a hint of the car’s original colour, polished rust, the bits artfully arranged and mounted on a stand. The GT will live on as an art-rageous monument for its owner.

 

Lamborghini Art Car

Jeff Voth, Autonet, May 9th 2014

So it bodes the question, how do you make the Gallardo even more desirable and exotic, while at the same time building on its already sensuous curves and angles? The Lamborghini Gallardo is one of the most desirable exotic sports cars in the world. Passersby in Toronto yesterday, stopping to pose beside and take numerous pictures of a glistening white model in front of the Intercontinental Toronto Centre, are proof of its longevity. The outward appearance is both sexy and menacing. A powerful engine wrapped inside a taut super spy exterior shell. So it bodes the question, how do you make the Gallardo even more desirable and exotic, while at the same time building on its already sensuous curves and angles? Lisabel has a few ideas about that and she wowed the assembled guests yesterday at the Lamborghini Art Car exhibit in downtown Toronto. Born in Quebec in 1968, Lisabel began her artistic career 20 years ago in Atlanta, Georgia. Building on her professional experience in the composite materials industry, she uses this knowledge to craft art that is both explosive and filled with textures. She took the step to become a full-time artist in 2007 and has never looked back. Lisabel and her imaginative creations have been featured in various galleries around the world. The cities of Denver, New Orleans, Calgary, Vancouver and Montreal have all displayed her work, as well as an exhibit in Belgium. Painting for celebrities and corporate clients including Bombardier, she continues to astound with a sense of flair and charisma. Much like the Lamborghini Gallardo she used as her latest canvass, Lisabel’s art is one-of-a-kind.

The Lisabel Suite Launches at the InterContinental Toronto Centre (featuring the work of artist Lisabel)

Anya Wassenberg, Art & culture Maven, May 8th 2014

With material from a media release:

Contemporary Art & Marketing:

The Lisabel Suite

Launches at the InterContinental Toronto Centre

featuring the work of artist Lisabel

TORONTO - I had the opportunity to check out the newly launched Lisabel suite at the InterContinental Toronto Centre and speak to the artist and agent/co-partner Glenn Miller.

Lisabel's bold abstract works greet you from the lobby along with - for a limited time - the Lamborghini Art Car that's gotten her eye popping and colourful makeover.

Her pieces are bright and wonderfully textural and made of composite materials - a medium, as it turns out, where you could say she has some history. Self-taught as an artist, she was actually one of the first female graduates of a program in composite materials from CEGEP de St-Jérôme, QC.

"I sold engineering and chemical products," she recalls - all while working on creative projects. She began her artistic career during a stint in Atlanta. "I made about 20 pieces and sold many of them."

"It was my dream to do this," she says of the life of an artist. "In 2007, I had a big roller blade accident - I broke my back, my wrist. It was difficult. God decided for me." Choosing to pursue art full-time proved to be fortuitous. Later in 2007 she won the first Grand Prize in Distinctive Techniques at the 24th International Visual Arts, Sound and Light Gala Contest held by the Cercle des artistes peintres et sculpteurs du Québec and it began the process of raising her profile in the arts scene. Together with Glenn Miller, she now owns and runs a studio and gallery in Montreal and her work has been shown in Europe and North America and is part of collections all over the world.

The Lisabel Suite is a themed suite at the InterContinental - the second such project (the first having launched in Montreal in 2010). It's not only an opportunity for the artist to market work in a new way, but also to bring art into the public sphere in a space outside the sometimes too rarefied atmosphere of the gallery. Glenn is her agent and co-partner. "I had a 50-year vision of the business. I wanted to build a brand," he says. He began by considering projects involving strong global brands and approached the InterContinental in Montreal. They sold InterContinental on showing some of Lisabel's work in their lobby and then - prodded in part by the general blandness of hotel room decor worldwide - expanded by suggesting the concept of creating a theme out a hotel suite. The result was what is now one of the honeymoon suites at the InterContinental in Montreal, for which Lisabel made an exclusive collection of pieces. Her work has an immediate appeal - striking, textural and with a richly saturated palette of colour - that adds a distinct note of urbam glamour to the typically neutral tones of the hotel suite. 

"Once you've done that, you've created a concept that you can market," Glenn explains. "Once a year we change the collection. There will only be one Lisabel Suite in town."

The goal is to expand the idea across the globe. "I want to change the way art is viewed. I want to change the way art is sold," Glenn says.

About the Lamborghini Art Car

Grand Touring Automobiles (GTA) presents an exclusive custom-designed 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo 560-4. The stunning work of art was created by world-renowned, Canadian artist Lisabel - who painted the original work in composite materials (the same medium that the shell of the Lamborghini is made of), recast them in 3M vinyl, and then enveloped the Lamborghini in the material.

Lisabel joined forces with Lamborghini to fuse the technological fit and the beauty of her art, with the world's most artistic, desired car. "The car served as a source of inspiration to bring a feminine artistic touch to the sexiest modern car today", shares Lisabel.

"GTA and Lisabel share the same clientele and many of the same brand attributes, such as high-performance and exclusivity. The Gallardo is a true exotic, and the one prepared by Lisabel is truly art on wheels. It's sexy, too." says Shawn Morris, Vice-President of Operations at Grand Touring Automobiles. About the Lisabel Suite

The newly renovated 540 square foot suite showcases the sleek and sophisticated urban art of Lisabel, bringing dramatic presence to the understated luxury of InterContinental Toronto Centre, while creating a residential experience with a welcoming, comfortable atmosphere. Low profile furnishings were smartly used to afford uninterrupted city views. The new Lisabel Suite integrates classic design and textures with contemporary murals.

“We are delighted to have this partnership with Lisabel. Her vibrant urban art is a perfect match with our sleek and contemporary hotel design and dynamic downtown city feel” says Alexi Hakim, General Manager, InterContinental Toronto Centre.

 

LIFESTYLE: Canadian International Auto Show 2014

Maggie Ng, Beauty PhD, 18 février 2014

Here's a sneak peek of the 2014 Canadian International Auto Show! The CIAS is being held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre once again and I was fortunate enough to be able to attend media/press day, which was awesome, as I was able to avoid the crowds and get some decent photos!

One of the most impressive cars at the show [in my opinion] was the McLaren P1 [Featured in photo above]. With the sleek shape and aerodynamic design [designed by air], it truly is a stunner.

The new BMW M4 Coupé. 431hp at your command. This is a precision tool in a holistic package. For more power, even better handling and an unforgettable driving experience. For all the BMW drivers I know, they all tell me they can never go back to any other car. I guess it really is the "ultimate driving machine".

Of all the Toyota vehicles, the FV2 might be the most creative. The single-seat concept car is a glimpse into the future. The FV2 is essentially a pod with a diamond-shaped wheel array and Toyota says that the technology of the vehicle allows it to gauge the driver's mood and suggest possible destinations. The interaction between driver and vehicle is also displayed in an augmented reality screen on the windshield, and the car exterior colours and patterns that can change based on the driver's mood. Cool...

Did you know you could get a 2013 Hyundai Elantra GT for 0% financing for up to 72 months? That's pretty darn good! And you can also get up to $2000 in price adjustments. My brother keeps telling me to get one because of this amazing offer. For now, I'm ok with my "old" car, but will definitely keep this in mind if I need to get a new one!

Is this the car worth waiting for? A two-plus-two sports coupe concept from Toyota's California design studio that could be Lexus's answer to the Aston Martin DB9 if, of course, it reaches production for 2017. This will squeeze at least 500 horsepower from its hybrid powertrain.

According to some of my Facebook news feeds, the Scion FR-S is a real attention grabber. I remember some guy that just bought an FR-S says that another driver [in a Porsche] waved him down in a parking lot so he could talk to him about his new car!

Rev loud and proud, Canada. Mini Cooper is the official vehicle of the 2014 Canadian Winter Olympic Team! Woo hoo! See the MINI sing "O Canada" [HERE]!

Porsche Sport Driving School -- ooh I want to sign up! I'm no expert driver, but I can drive stick and think this would be so fun! Always wanted a Porsche, but can't afford it or the maintenance and/or repairs that comes with it!

Lamborghini Gallardo 560-4 + Canadian artist collaboration with LISABEL. Genius. This is an exclusive custom-designed car, with recasted original artwork in 3M vinyl, and then enveloped the Lamborghini in the material. Another highlight in the Auto Exotica section.

10 Things to see at the Canadian International Autoshow

Maurice Cacho, CTV News, 14 février 2014

A few years ago it was all about hybrid vehicles. Automakers were racing to get hybrid gas-electric cars in showrooms to prove that we had a future after the oil runs out.

It seems as though the industry has moved on now, rolling out cars and concepts that still rely on gas engines, but use a little help from electric motors. The result is often outrageous performance packaged up as sleek as a cover model.

From the super expensive to the super cheap, here's a list of ten themes at the Canadian International Autoshow:

1. It's about the power again

Power, determination and good looks. If someone was looking to bottle up an extraordinary athlete like Charles Hamelin as a vehicle, they'd have no shortage of automotive examples exuding power, precision and finesse to get inspiration from at this show.

The highlight in Toronto this year is the McLaren P1.

The P1 looks as unique as a piece of art in a European museum, yet can travel at galactic speeds. It can dart from 0-100 km/h faster than it took me to write this paragraph (2.8 seconds) with power from a gas engine and an electric motor.

Oh, and don't bother even dreaming about buying this vehicle inspired by the early '90s McLaren F1 and Lewis Hamilton's Formula 1 ride. All 375 have been sold with a starting price of USD$1.1 million. Count yourself lucky to be able to see one of the seven sold to Canadians.

An honourable mentions goes out to the Corvette Z06 Stingray. A workhorse of a sports car without the McLaren's tailored details.

Fast engine? Check – thanks to the 6.2-litre 625 hp V8 engine. Good lucks? Yup, this will turn heads – but most importantly, it'll put a smile on the driver's face.

2. Diesel gaining ground

It's been a while coming, but diesel-powered vehicles' promise of more for less is starting to become an accepted concept. Specifically at the show, we're seeing several diesel-sipping trucks.

The Dodge RAM, GMC Colorado and AJAC-winning Jeep Grand Cherokee all have diesel engines promising optimal efficiency with maximum grunt on their option lists.

While some manufacturers flaunt their hybrid gas-electric vehicles, look to the European automakers' for fuel-sipping diesel options in other categories. It might be smelly at the pumps, but the diesel-powered vehicles of tomorrow won't be as painful at the checkout.

3. Cheap and cheerful is back

Given the choice, and approximately $10,000, would you rather buy a used car, or a brand new Nissan Micra?

Believe it or not, the Micra comes with four doors, five seats and the new car smell -- all with a price tag of less than ten grand. That makes it the most inexpensive new car in the country. Not even the Americans have it this good. Wild.

It's not just a vehicle with enough space for you and a best friend in the passenger seat. Surprisingly, the back row is spacious enough for your two tallest mates bundled in the thickest winter jackets. Just keep their baggage to a minimum since the trunk is tiny: pretend you're a domestic air carrier.

It's also worth checking out the 2015 Honda Fit. This car has traditionally been as much fun to drive as the kiddie rides at an amusement park. You know, it's a hoot, but not scary or boring – which is an important trait for a basic no-frills car.

4. Green can be mean

In Toronto BMW pulled the wraps off its i8 production car, a stunning piece of plug-in hybrid machinery that is designed to perform as well as it looks good.

The i8 has an all-electric range of 35 kilometres. Not spectacular, but the 0-100 km/h time of 4.4 seconds is. Not to mention it sips just 2.2 litres of gas every 100 kilometres.

It costs $145,000, so for most of us, the auto show might be a best chance to check out this incredible example of how an automakers is making cars fun and frugal. In showrooms this fall.

5. Green can be lean

For something that's still fast(ish) and eco-friendly, then BMW's rival Audi has an option in its new A3 e-tron.

The hatchback plug-in hybrid packs a measly 1.4-litre internal combustion engine that pounds out 150 hp, plus a 75 kW electric motor for a total of 204 horses that top out at 222 km/h.

Commuters take note: fully charged in 2.5 hours, the A3 e-tron can travel 50 km without the gasoline engine's help. And for longer road trips, this Audi has a claimed total range of 940 km.

Look for this example of Vorsprung durch Technik in red at the Audi booth.

6. Volvos aren't boring

Volvos have long been considered safe boxes of steel on wheels, stiff enough to withstand a crash yet as boring as watching bread rise.

Forget it for this Volvo. The race engineers asked themselves 'Who is this car for?' and selflessly decided the answer was themselves. Good.

This wild blue car (available in Canada in black at a starting price of $64K) features a 3-litre six-cylinder turbo engine that pumps out 345 hp to all four wheels up to a top speed of 250 km/h. It's supposed to be ready for all seasons, all weather and all conditions. It's ready for lots of eyeballs at the auto show, that's for sure.

7. Cars are becoming smart(er)

You might never drive a Mercedes-Benz S-Class on the road, but the simulator should give you a taste of what it's like to take the next-generation of automotive technology for a spin.

This is a vehicle that can hint at what our self-driving future will look like. All you'll need to do is sit behind the wheel (or behind the so-called driver) and watch as the car makes decisions for itself, based on traffic, pedestrians and lane markings. Creepy cool factor guaranteed.

While in the AutoConnect Zone, also check out the self-parking Ford C-Max Energi concept. Yes, automatic parallel parking isn't new. But this one can park without requiring you to be in the driver's seat. So, you could theoretically be paying for parking while your Ford rolls int your spot.

8. Light is as important as might

After stirring controversy in Detroit, the Ford F-150 is in Toronto for you to see its new aluminium-alloy body for yourself.

Yes, commenters on auto blogs are skeptical of the lightweight construction, but there's no denying that a 700-lb lighter truck has the potential to perform better.

Aluminium construction hasn't hurt sportscars built with the material, and for what it's worth, the F-150 still seems like a serious truck. Take a look for yourselves at the Ford booth.

9. Car art stands out

This Lamborghini was as conspicuous in the exotics section as someone wearing a tracksuit to a black tie wedding. For that reason, it's not something to miss.

Let's be honest, a Lamborghini is not a car you get to fly under the radar. The vinyl art wrapping will ensure that this 560 hp car stands out.

This particular Gallardo LP560 is wrapped in art from Lisabel Filitrault. It usually takes a few months for her to design the artwork, and then they spend two weeks wrapping the Lambo in a print replica. Costs $10,000. And you, to complete the set, you can spring for the traditional art pieces at $20,000.

Taking it all in, it appears as though the Lamborghini is even more of a statement car with Lisabel's art than its already stunning factory paint job.

10. The premium CUVs are arriving –- and look good

Two luxury Crossover Utility Vehicles stood out at the show: the Porsche Macan and the Mercedes-Benz GLA . First things first, you should know that they're both gorgeous.

Unlike some CUVs which look like ugly ducklings concocted by accountants, both of these luxury CUVs actually look smooth and well-designed.

Although many traditionalists are of the firm belief that a Porsche should be a two-door RWD sports car, the four-door jacked-up 2015 Macan will feature a 340 hp V6 engine and sell for about $54,000.

Mercedes-Benz, meanwhile, is flaunting its similar GLA CUV. To add another acronym to the mix, the performance-tuned AMG GLA will feature the world's most powerful four-cylinder engine at 355 hp.

 

Art Meets Auto: Montreal Artist Wraps Lamborghini in Stunning Paint Job

Glenda Fordham, Fordham PR, 14 février 2014

Visiting this year’s Canadian International Auto Show media day yesterday, I expected the same old, same old: unveiling of new and concept cars by all the big auto makers, sales & revenue bragging, the odd celebrity guest, but what stopped me in my jaded trade-show tracks was this awesome Lamborghini wrapped in stunning artwork, and standing in front of the display was the artist herself!  The smart folks at Grand Touring Automobiles (GTA) presented this exclusive custom-designed 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo 560-4 created by world-renowned Canadian artist LISABEL, who painted the original work in composite materials (the same medium as the shell of the Lamborghini), recast them in 3M vinyl, and then enveloped the Lamborghini in the material. This innovative collaboration with the artist will be on display in the Grand Touring Automobile booth at the CIAS in the Auto Exotica area, on the 100 level of the North Building at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Lisabel joined forces with GTA to fuse the technological fit and the beauty of her art, with the world’s most artistic desired car: the legendary Lamborghini. “The car served as a source of inspiration to bring a feminine artistic touch to the sexiest modern car today”, shares Lisabel.

I spoke briefly with Lisabel and her business partner, Montreal businessman GLENN MILLER (both pictured above) who told me how excited they were about her artistic partnership with GTA and the car show this year, and they were thrilled to be travelling to Europe and Dubai in the next few months for discussions with art aficionados and the potential for other car/art projects.

Lisabel’s paintings have been exhibited in galleries and art shows around the world including Hong Kong, Dubai, California, New York, New Orleans, Denver, Detroit, Monaco, Belgium, Spain, France and Toronto.  In 2007, she won the Grand Prize in the Distinctive Technique of the 24th International Visual Arts, Sound and Light Gala Contest held by the Cercle des Artistes Peintres et Sculteurs du Québec.  She and Glenn are co-owners of Galerie Lisabel, a 4,000 sq-ft. studio in Montreal that plays host to exclusive custom artwork.

Toronto Auto Show: Exotic Cars you'll lust after

Steve Bond, Wheels, 13 février 2014

What makes a vehicle “exotic”?  First of all, it should be gorgeous. It should have outstanding performance. It should be shrouded in mystery. That it’s also expensive is naturally and automatically assumed.

An exotic car is the forbidden fruit. It’s completely out of our league but we grasp at the flimsy chance that somehow, someday, if the stars line up just right, we might have a shot.

The Toronto auto show has more than its share of Lustmobiles. Just make your way to the Auto Exotica area for some of the most exclusive cars currently gracing our shores. Here’s a list of some of the beauties that await you:

Aston Marton Vanquish Volante: Since I am saddled with the last name of Bond and a middle name of James (yes, really), Aston Martins have always been high on my list of dream cars.

From Sean Connery ejecting a Goldfinger minion from his DB5 to Pierce Brosnan’s invisible V-12 Vanquish, Astons have always held a special place in the Bond film mystique.

The Vanquish Volante on display at this year’s show doesn’t have an ejector seat, and you wouldn’t want it to become invisible. But with a 565-horsepower, 5.9-liter V12, the car will certainly go. For $300,000 and a willing smile, you could be the owner.

Ferrari 458 Speciale: When you say exotic, most people think of Ferrari or Lamborghini. You won’t be disappointed — the show offers a full selection of prancing-horse and fighting-bull Italian supercars.

Ferrari is represented by the 458 Speciale, the F12 Berlinetta and the FF — four seats and four-wheel drive.

Lamborghini Aventador: For Lamborghini fans, confirmed is the latest Aventador, the Toronto Star booth will feature a racing Lambo, and a special Lamborghini vehicle display will be part of a collaboration with Quebec artist Lisabel.

Rolls Royce Wraith: If you find Italian iron too common or too sporty, consider a Rolls Royce Wraith. The fastback, luxury coupe has a 634-horsepower, twin-turbocharged V-12 and suicide doors hinged at the rear. The price of admission is $350,000 and you start bespoking from there.

Bentley Flying Spur: Or perhaps the Bentley Flying Spur is more to your liking. A 2,500-kg, four-door uber-luxury sedan, it is powered by a 616-horsepower, W-12 that pumps out a pavement-wrinkling 590 lb.-ft. of torque and does zero to 100 km/h in just over 4 seconds. It’s a quarter-million-dollar gentleman’s express

 

Canadian Artist Customizes Laborghini

Jack Kazmierski, Autosphere, 12 février 2014

Canadian artist, Lisabel Filitrault, upped on perfection when she customized a 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo 560-4. The car will be on display in the Grand Touring Automobiles booth at the Canadian International Auto Show – in the Auto Exotica area.

Filitrault painted the original work in composite materials (the same medium that the shell of the Lamborghini is made of), recast them in 3M vinyl, and then enveloped the Lamborghini in the material.

“The car served as a source of inspiration to bring a feminine artistic touch to the sexiest modern car today,” says Filitrault, a Montreal-based artist who has had her paintings exhibited in galleries and art shows around the world, including Hong Kong, Dubai, California, New York, New Orleans, Denver, Detroit, Monaco, Belgium, Spain, France and Toronto.

TORONTO, Feb. 11, 2014 /CNW/ - Grand Touring Automobiles (GTA) is thrilled to present an exclusive custom-designed 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo 560-4 at the 2014 Canadian International Auto Show (CIAS).

The stunning work of art was created by world-renowned, Canadian artist Lisabel - who painted the original work in composite materials (the same medium that the shell of the Lamborghini is made of), recast them in 3M vinyl, and then enveloped the Lamborghini in the material.

This amazing collaboration with Galerie Lisabel of Montreal will be on display in the GTA booth at the CIAS - in the Auto Exotica area, on the 100 level of the North Building at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.

Lisabel joined forces with Lamborghini to fuse the technological fit and the beauty of her art, with the world's most artistic, desired car. "The car served as a source of inspiration to bring a feminine artistic touch to the sexiest modern car today", shares Lisabel.

"GTA and Lisabel share the same clientele and many of the same brand attributes, such as high-performance and exclusivity. The Gallardo is a true exotic, and the one prepared by Lisabel is truly art on wheels. It's sexy, too."

Now entering its 41st year, the CIAS is the largest automobile show in Canada, drawing in excess of 300,000 visitors per year. This year's show will feature 125 exhibitors and close to 1,000 vehicles in over 500,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space. But, there will be only one 560 horsepower work of fine art on display in Toronto, and visitors will need to drop by the GTA booth to see it in all its glory.

"We're thrilled to be able to bring these very special cars to the Canadian International Auto Show," says Morris. "We're proud of all our brands and we're especially proud to be representing Lamborghini at the show for the first time."

Armed with 700 horsepower, all-wheel drive and a top speed of 350 km/h, the Aventador is one of the fastest and most audacious cars on the planet, period. Also on display is a 2013 Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo racecar, which is presented in partnership with the Toronto Star.

"Our Gallardo was on the podium numerous times in the Super Trofeo competition last year and is certain to seize greatness as the series evolves this year," Morris adds. "And if any car deserves the supersports designation, it's the Aventador - it's everything that the Lamborghini brand stands for."

All of these exotics will be on display in the GTA booth, which is located on the 100 level of the North Building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. This year's Canadian International Auto Show runs from February 14 to 23.

L'art signé Lisabel

Cassandra Poirier, Magazine Mieux-Être, octobre 2013

En entrant dans la galerie d’art de Lisabel, l’ambiance se veut urbaine et contemporaine. Sur fond noir, et mises en évidence par un éclairage judicieux, les toiles s’offrent aux regards des curieux amateurs. Découverte d’une artiste peintre singulière.

L'art est abstrait, mais se dessinent sur certaines toiles des silhouettes d’hommes et de femmes, des taureaux, des instruments de musiques ou bien

des visages. Les couleurs sont fortes et le fini est texturé. «Souvent, on le remarque quand ce sont des femmes qui peignent. En général, elles font de l’art très féminin alors que je qualifierais plutôt le mien de masculin», explique l’artiste peintre. En effet, chez Lisabel, l’art n’est pas qu’une affaire destinée aux femmes. Souvent, c’est le conjoint qui prend plaisir à choisir le tableau qui trônera dans le salon.

Le style de l’artiste est unique, tout comme le processus de création de ses toiles qui résulte du mariage de l’art et de la chimie. Oubliez l’acrylique et les peintures à bas d’eau, Lisabel utilise du polyester liquide qu’elle manie avec des spatules pour créer des textures et du relief. «Je prépare mes couleurs et crée des réactions chimiques. Si je veux que le rouge et le noir se mélangent, ils doivent réagir de la même façon. Si je veux que le blanc soit retiré, il doit réagir de façon différente. Je dois penser à tout cela quand je fais un tableau », explique l’artiste.

Lisabel Filiatrault a étudié les matériaux composites et s’est ensuite lancée dans ce domaine. « J’ai commencé à peindre très jeune. Je faisais des reproductions de Picasso et Salvador Dali et elles étaient identiques. Je savais que j’avais l’œil, mais jamais je n’aurais pensé devenir artiste. Je savais tout simplement que j’aimais ça», raconte-t-elle. Après avoir travaillé à Montréal et à Toronto, Lisabel part à Atlanta lorsqu’elle a 21 ans. C’est à ce moment qu’elle traine dans les laboratoires et commence à peindre des toiles abstraites. «J’expérimentais les produits chimiques ensemble, les réactions, les couleurs, et j’ai découvert que c’était bien mieux que de l’acrylique ou la peinture à base d’eau», relate l’artiste. Au fil du temps, Lisabel s’est créé un réseau et a réussi à organiser un premier vernissage. «J’ai vendu tout ce que j’avais! Les gens ont aimé les effets et les couleurs, mais à ce moment, la carrière d’artiste me faisait peur. »

De retour à Montréal, deux ans plus tard, Lisabel est embauchée dans une grosse manufacture de produits chimiques, mais continue de peindre dans les laboratoires de ses clients. «J’avais un poste très important. Beaucoup de gens travaillaient pour moi, j’avais beaucoup de liberté et je gagnais très bien ma vie. Quitter un emploi comme celui-là pour devenir artiste, ça prend du “guts” ! J’étais très déchirée, car je voyais que je pouvais en faire une carrière. » À partir de ce moment-là, tout s’enchaîne pour Lisabel qui gagne un premier Grand prix du Cercle des Artistes Peintres et Sculpteurs du Québec en 2007. Si l’artiste n’est toujours pas capable de prendre la décision de se consacrer totalement à son art, la vie lui donnera un coup de pouce. Victime d’un accident de patins à roues alignées, Lisabel perd son emploi et décide alors d’ouvrir sa première galerie d’art.

NOUVELLE EXPÉRIENCE

Depuis 2007, Lisabel se consacre entièrement à son art. Et tout récemment, sa galerie d’art a fait peau neuve en déménageant dans le quartier artistique tendance de Montréal, Griffintown. Elle en a profité pour redéfinir son concept. Autrefois située à Ville Mont-Royal, la galerie n’arrivait pas à attirer sa clientèle, principalement composée de gens d’affaires, d’entrepreneurs et de particuliers, souvent situés au centre-ville. Aujourd’hui, nul besoin de sollicitation, tout le monde se déplace pour admirer les tableaux de l’artiste-peintre lors de ses vernissages.

Si la galerie était autrefois publique, Lisabel a plutôt voulu la privatiser pour rendre l’expérience plus unique et personnelle à tous ceux qui s’intéressent à son art. « Quand tu es pignon sur rue, il y a 98% des gens qui entrent et ressortent les mains vides. Avec les années, on s’est créé un grand réseau. On connaît tellement de gens, que l’on préfère les inviter et les recevoir pour parler de projets concrets, explique l’artiste. On a été très visible au niveau des fondations et des autres galeries, alors aujourd’hui, on peut se permettre d’avoir une galerie privée. Les gens savent qui est Lisabel. »

L’expérience en vaut le coup. Entrer dans la galerie, c’est plonger dans le monde contemporain et unique de Lisabel. Si à la base l’espace était composé de quatre murs blancs et de planchers «tout croches» comme le décrit l’artiste, la transformation a été radicale. Johanne Lortie, designer d’architecture d’intérieur et amie de Lisabel, a aménagé la galerie pour en faire un loft ultra contemporain où chaque toile est mise en valeur. « On voulait que les gens se sentent bien, qu’ils se sentent chez eux. Souvent quand on entre dans une galerie d’art il y a des néons, les murs sont blancs et c’est très impersonnel. Les gens regardent comment tu es habillé et testent tes connaissances sur l’art. Nous voulions plutôt faire le contraire! Quand les gens entrent, on leur sert un verre de café, de vin ou même un verre de champagne. Il y a un salon, une toilette, une cuisine ; les gens se sentent dans une maison et sont capables d'imaginer les tableaux dans leur propre résidence », raconte Lisabel.

Aujourd’hui l’artiste remporte un franc succès auprès de sa clientèle. Son partenariat avec Glenn Miller, entrepreneur, gérant et aussi mari de l’artiste, a propulsé sa carrière au sommet. « En 2008, j’ai dit à Glenn : “tu es René Angelil, moi je suis Céline, il faut que tu embarques avec moi ! Je sais que ça va marcher, j’ai besoin de ton aide!”» Lisabel avait raison, car aujourd’hui elle possède des ententes avec BMW, Bombardier, Roche Bobois et Sothebys, entre autres. Si vous passez par l’hôtel Intercontinental de Montréal, vous pourrez même vous payer un luxe et réserver la suite « Lisabel » !

 

Une Lamborghini unique au monde 

Montreal.tv, 5 avril 2013

Wow as-tu vu le char…la voiture qui provoque des torticolis est à vendre.

Une toute nouvelle Lamborghini dessinée par l’artiste peintre Lisabel est actuellement en vente chez Lamborghini Montréal pour la rondelette somme de 250 000$. La funky bombe sur quatre roues est une Lamborghini LP560-4.

L’initiative de cette voiture unique est le résultat d’un partenariat entre la Galerie Lisabel et Lamborghini Montréal du groupe auto John Scotti.

Le dévoilement de l’extravagante Lamborghini a eu lieu lors d’une soirée à la Galerie Lisabel à Griffintown. 

 

Diane Stehlé, Magazine Luxe, printemps 2013

Visages sensuels, bouleaux aux reflets métalliques, peintures abstraites : quel que soit leur sujet, les tableaux de Lisabel sont reconnaissables entre tous par leur texture unique et l’intensité de leurs couleurs. L’artiste, associée à l’homme d’affaires Glenn Miller et engagée dans mille et un projets, a le vent en poupe. Rencontre avec un couple qui, dans la vie comme au travail, forme un duo de choc.

De l'industrie des matériaux composites à la peinture

Toute petite déjà, Lisabel passait son temps à reproduire les œuvres des grands maîtres, de Dali à Picasso. Pourtant, elle mettra longtemps sa passion pour la peinture de côté au profit d’une carrière plus sage. Pendant vingt ans, lisabel travaille dans l’industrie des matériaux composites. en 1991, elle déménage en Géorgie. elle a alors l’idée de faire des tableaux avec ces matériaux qu’elle connaît si bien.

À sa grande surprise, tous trouvent rapidement preneur. Mais Lisabel garde la tête froide. « J’aimais mon métier et  je ne me sentais pas prête à être artiste à temps plein », dit-elle. Ce n’est qu’en 2007 que sa vie prendra un tournant radical. Lisabel est en effet victime d’un grave accident de patins à roues alignées. alitée pendant plusieurs mois, elle perd son  emploi. « Ça a été le coup de pouce dont j’avais besoin pour réaliser mon rêve »

En 2007, elle remporte la première place au Grand Prix en technique distincte du 24eConcours gala - international des arts visuels son et lumière organisé par le Cercle des artistes peintres et sculpteurs du Québec. Parallèlement, Glenn Miller, son conjoint et un homme d’affaires averti, décide de devenir son agent. Il n’en fallait pas plus pour que l’artiste prenne son envol.

Une technique unique

Forte de ses connaissances pointues en matière de polymères, Lisabel met au point une technique bien à elle. Que ce soit pour peindre des tableaux semi-figuratifs ou abstraits, elle utilise un fond en polyester liquide qu’elle étale avec des spatules. « Comme j’applique des couches très épaisses, je travaille toujours à l'horizontale. » Jouant avec la matière et le temps de pose, ses tableaux présentent une texture unique. Dans la lignée du pop art, Lisabel aime peindre des visages aux couleurs vibrantes. Toutefois, prolifique et en constante évolution, elle aime varier les sujets et peint aussi des paysages et des tableaux abstraits. Aujourd’hui, elle se tourne de plus en plus vers la sculpture, une orientation tout à fait naturelle pour celle qui a toujours aimé jouer avec les textures. « J’ai commencé à peindre sur des mannequins, il y a quelques semaines. J’ai toujours été attirée par la sculpture et, petit à petit, je tends vers le travail en trois dimensions. »

Mais quelle que soit l’orientation qu’elle choisit, son public la suit. Du Canada aux États-Unis en passant par la Chine, la Colombie et Dubaï. Ses fameux paysages de bouleaux se vendent partout dans le monde. « Je suis fière d’avoir développé un thème très représentatif du Québec, qui traverse les frontières », commente la peintre.

Une carrière internationale

De fait, les œuvres de Lisabel se vendent dans plus de quinze pays. À Montréal, l’Hôtel intercontinental lui consacre une suite complète et expose ses toiles dans les espaces communs.

En 2011, le couple ouvre une galerie au concept unique en plein cœur de Griffintown à Montréal. Aménagé comme un appartement afin de mettre les œuvres en contexte, l’espace de 4000 pieds carrés se consacre entièrement aux œuvres de Lisabel et ne peut être visité que sur rendez-vous. Il est également possible de louer la galerie pour toute réception ou activité d’entreprise. Devant le succès de Lisabel, deux autres espaces verront bientôt le jour à Toronto et en Chine.

L’homme d’affaires a également établi deux importants partenariats, l’un avec Lamborghini Montréal, l’autre avec Steinway & Sons. À l’occasion du Grand Prix automobile, Lisabel a transformé une Lamborghini en une véritable œuvre d’art, en vente pour la coquette somme de 250 000 $. Nous ne savons pas encore quelle forme prendra sa collaboration avec les pianos Steinway, mais ce qui est sûr, c’est que l’artiste nous surprendra, comme à son habitude!

Luxe offre à ses lecteurs la chance de gagner une œuvre de lisabel d’une valeur de 3 000 $. Pour en savoir plus, rendez-vous au www.magazineluxe.com
