Alain Bédard was born in Québec, QC, in 1958. In 1976, his great passion for drawing and illustration led him to pursue studies in Graphic Techniques at the Cégep de Ste-Foy in Quebec. In 1979, Alain moved to New York to continue studying arts and gain more experience in illustration. When he returned home, he held his first art exhibition at the Maison Maheu-Couillard de Québec. Wanting to continue perfecting his skills, he studied at the Laval University in graphic arts (1980-1984). He had the privilege of having the great modern painter Claude A. Simard as an illustration teacher, who became a good friend and mentor.
Figurative art has always been his way of life and communication. He enjoys observing the spirit in people, the movement, the colours, and the scents. Inspired by his trips to Europe and the local architecture, his canvases are filled with colour, movement and light.
Bédard is a member of the Regroupement des Artistes en Arts Visuels du Québec, a member of the Society of Canadian Artists, and an International Art Association cardholder as a professional painter.
