Alain Bédard’s passion for painting started in 1976 and led him to pursue art studies at Cégep de Ste-Foy in Quebec. He then traveled to New York to continue his studies and gain experience in illustration. Never one to rest, Alain’s desire to push his own boundaries led him to further his education at Laval University where he completed his Baccalaureate in 1984. While attending Laval University he had the privilege of studying under the renowned Canadian painter Claude A. Simard, who became a great friend and mentor. Having worked as a professional painter for many years now Alain has developed a distinct style based on his travels, love of architecture and brilliant use of colour.
What I live ...
Each painting that I paint, I have lived it and represents a place where I stopped to take the time to live and admire what surrounds me ...
In this exhibition, you will find sometimes the countryside, sometimes the small villages or the big cities which all had different things to say, to see and to do. My subjects are meant to be a message of hope and freedom.
It is a pleasure for me to share these memories with you and to bring them to you in turn. Each of you has already experienced unforgettable moments and I want my paintings to make you live happy and beautiful moments.
A figurative painter with an impressionist touch, that's who I am.
