1923 - 2003

André Garant was the third child of six, born in the town of Lévis in 1923. He first makes a career in the army and works during the World War II at the Davies dockyard in Lauzon.

After the war, he studies sculpture at the École des Beaux-Arts de Québec. He meets Louise Carrier, which will be his wife. Along his studies, he chooses mainly the painting and the sculpture, even if he touches to the watercolor and ink techniques as well. Appart from its artistic career, Garant teaches at the Collège de Lévis, the École des Beaux-Arts de Québec and the École d’architecture de Québec.

His wife dies in 1976 and he has a second wedding in 1983. In 1987, he makes the Suite Liturgique, the art piece that will mark his whole career. His style is at first figurative, until it gets more abstractive. He has much interest in the landscapes, life scenes and Christian themes. Few times only he adventures himself in the making of portraiture. He dies in 2003.
