Cantin is a sensitive and reserved artist who infuses the soul of the objects and landscapes he paints. He paints with an inner vision of things, he is inspired by his subject rather than copying it. Cantin is particularly fond of Quebec houses, the streets of Old Quebec, interior settings, landscapes and still lifes.
Quebec artist Roger Cantin’s paintings are part of many public and private collections. He is represented by a dozen contemporary art galleries in Quebec.
