In the past few years, the growing demand for his work has allowed him to create large oil paintings, elaborate staircase settings, along with "Trompe L’Oeil" embracing the ceilings and walls of the living areas in numerous East Coast mansions.  His commissions include, Fisher Island, Star Island, Indian Creek, Manalapan, Palm Beach estates and Celine Dion's estate in Jupiter, Florida.

Yves versatility in style comes from a mix of the Old World with surrealist, fantastical, mystical and utterly serene.  His artwork and design have won multiple awards, and he is recognized by the art industry as one of the leading original Artists.

Yves Lanthier has been profiled in numerous publications including Florida Design, Art Business News, Palm Beach Illustrated, Boca Raton News and named one of the World's Best Trompe L'oeil Artists.  In December 2004, The Art of Trompe L'oeil Murals a book about his life and most prominent work was published by F&W Publication.
