At 67 years old, Stellio Brasse is an environmentalist artist, whose passion has been nourished since his childhood. With his skillful fingers, he reveals the hidden beauty of waste.

His painting of the Prime Minister did not go unnoticed on Monday June 3. During the inauguration of the new Vallée-des-Prêtres police station, the artist Stellio Brasse presented it to Pravind Jugnauth. Its particularity: the work is composed entirely of plant material. And this is what characterizes this 67-year-old artist: his passion for transforming and reusing waste into something beautiful.

Stellio Brasse is the very embodiment of the environmentalist artist. He merges his talent with a noble mission: the protection of our planet. His works breathe new life into discarded materials, from plastic caps to broken corals, from dead leaves to shards of glass. Under his skillful fingers, this waste is transformed into a colorful symphony of renewal, a vibrant hymn to the beauty hidden behind the pollution.

Born in the vibrant Cité Martial, in Plaine-Verte, Stellio Brasse found his haven of peace in the heart of Résidence La Cure. From a young age, he was fascinated by the beauty of the world around him. This fascination transformed into a consuming passion for art, a passion fueled by an insatiable curiosity. Faced with the mystery of his black slate and his white chalk, he found his inspiration. He illuminated his creations with the brightness of the leaves, revealing a palette of unsuspected colors. Despite financial difficulties, he embraced collage as a means of expression, revealing his artistic genius to the world.

His journey, although strewn with pitfalls, is an ode to perseverance. From a humble store boy to a respected construction supervisor, he cultivated his love for art in secret, nourishing his artistic soul while climbing the professional ladder. Even abroad, where he honed his talents, his heart remained anchored in his homeland, his nourishing land. Moreover, his exhibitions, from the Max Boullé Gallery to the prestigious Blue Penny Museum and Nelson Mandela Centre, bear witness to his commitment to his art and his country.

Through his paintings, he immortalizes not only illustrious faces, but also historical moments, such as the Battle of Vieux-Grand-Port. His work is a mirror reflecting the soul of the nation, capturing the spirit of its leaders, the splendor of its landscapes and the resilience of its people. Among his most famous portraits, we find: Ti Frer, Kaya, Marie Madeleine de la Croix, Cardinal Margéot, Father Frederick Levasseur, James Burty David, Father Henry Souchon, Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam, Sir Gaëtan Duval, Nelson Mandela… His journey is a dance between the past and the present, where each painting tells a story, each brushstroke is a poem, each gesture a hymn to life.

But Stellio Brasse does not just create: he aspires to share his knowledge, to sow the seeds of art in the hearts of younger generations. His dream is to transform his workshop into a sanctuary of knowledge, where apprentices can flourish as budding artists, carrying the colors of their Mauritian heritage high on the international stage.

With his creations, Stellio Brasse elevates art to the rank of messenger of nature. His works are a vibrant appeal to ecological awareness and the fragile beauty of our world. His art is a treasure that reminds us of the transformative power of creativity and the infinite beauty of our planet.
