Yvon BRETON (1942)

Born in Johnville, Baie-du-Febvre, Quebec in 1942, Yvon Breton demonstrated artistic ability from an early age. He enrolled at Montreal’s École des Beaux-Arts in 1962, first he chooses the graphic arts and worked professionally for over seven years in that medium, although five years later winning the prestigious Prince Fine Arts Award at the Canadian National Exhibition. In 1988, Breton became the first Quebecer to be awarded the Prix René d’Anjou from the French government.

His early successes led him to fully dedicate himself to his artistic practice and the medium of oil painting.

While Breton has experimented with watercolor, ink, charcoal and pastel, his medium of choice is oil, which he applies on the canvas with a palette knife to create unique textures. His exceptional palette strokes and his ability to fuse asymmetrical strokes and movements into a concise painting is one of his most recognizable traits.

Breton compares his work to poetry; a visual poetry inspired by the shapes, colors and movements of the wilderness.

He paints the four seasons in vivid and luminous hues in the Post-Impressionist manner.
