About

I WANT MODERN ART: THE ORIGINS

An explorer by nature, I’ve backpacked across four continents. Three things remained constant wherever I went: overflowing creativity, an insatiable desire for enriching experiences, and an acute sensitivity to seeing beauty in all its forms. I spent four years in the Rockies of the Canadian West and the spectacular panoramas I saw there inspired me to explore new areas of creation--from the incredibly tiny to the immensely huge. It was during a long break between two jobs, snuggled into the valley of Canmore, that I first experienced the immeasurable joy of daily painting. That was 17 years ago.

Back in Quebec, I decided to put the painter in me on hold in order to continue exploring the numerous facets of graphic art, an area I have been perfecting for 20 years. Since exploring is in my DNA, this curiosity and desire for challenge extended into the professional realm. First as a graphic artist, then as a Photoshop expert and continuing on as an illustrator for children’s fashion, I finally chose to focus on editorial and advertising illustration. This echoed my innate talent for drawing, an area in which I received encouragement as a child by my father who taught me the basics. My creativity in illustration was rewarded with several prizes and enabled me to collaborate with such clients as Dove, Volkswagen and Coca-Cola.

The idea behind I Want Modern Art was in gestation at the very moment I was pregnant with my daughter. I then felt a profound desire to make a difference, to play a positive, long-term role in people’s daily lives. More than anything, I wanted to reawaken my passion for painting. My path and my obvious affinities for interior design, painting, illustration, contemporary architecture, textile patterns and even the marketing aspect converged towards one and the same artistic project, one and the same dream. At a later point, I would read “Your dream job does not exist, you must create it”—and it was true.

My name is Annick Poirier and I’m the happy founder of I Want Modern Art. Since 2012, I’ve been enriching the daily life of a clientele who appreciates original and exclusive modern art. Both inspired artist and determined businesswoman, I collaborate with the crème de la crème of their field. This explains why I Want Modern Art is an ecosystem of specialised partners, each contributing to the mission of making modern art accessible to the greatest number of people possible, and all by applying the highest standards of quality and durability while recognising local expertise.

My wonderful little daughter is now seven years old. She still inspires me even more than the Rockies! We live in the Laurentians, a mountainous region north of Montreal. In addition to taking crazy hikes on mountain paths and swimming in lakes, we create, sing, invent silly, never-ending stories, cook healthy food and pretend to speak Spanish. Here, imagination is a wild little horse, free to gallop as far and as high as it wants—to the mountain peaks and maybe even to my father, who introduced me to the universe of creativity.

I Want Modern Art is above all a story of the heart. I look forward to sharing it with you.
