French Canadian vocalist, visual artist and writer/producer Barnev Valsaint has enjoyed stellar success throughout his career. With a #1 hit song in Canada entitled “Soul Pleureur” in 1997, then touring and eventually settling in Las Vegas to work as Celine Dion’s top backup vocalist. Barnev joined Celine in 1999. He is currently performing in her spectacular show to sold-out audiences at the 4,000 seat Colosseum at Caesars Palace. The show has entertained millions of fans so far.
While on tour this year with Celine Dion at Caesars Palace, Barnev met Carnevale Gallery curator Tony Carnevale and the two discussed the gallery and the medium of fine art photography. Barnev was impressed with the gallery and Tony was impressed with Barnev’s art work. The rest is history.
With Barnev having grown up in the French speaking side of Montreal, Canada, the two decided to initially release some of Barnev’s work captured while on tour with Celine Dion in Paris, France. The collection entitled “The French Collection” begins with a limited edition offering of only (10) and features three highly collectible images.
Carnevale Gallery curator Tony Carnevale said “Having met Barnev I felt like I had known him all my life. His demeanor is so genuine and non-pretentious and his passion for fine art photography is contagious. When I saw his images, I knew immediately I had to work with him in some capacity. To be the first art gallery to showcase these highly collectible masterpieces is not only exciting but relevant”.
