Théberge first started as an abstract artist and then moved towards figurative painting. His career started with the creation of public art like murals, sculptures and stained glass. Some of these works are still present today in the Montreal subway. He first gained notoriety for his public art and then further developed his technique throughout the years.
He gradually gave up on sculpture and public art to dedicate himself fully to painting. His paintings are notable for the artist’s use of vibrant colours (mainly purple, pink, yellow and green) and recurring themes like umbrellas, loving couples, animals and cities.
His works are part of numerous important public and private collections like those of L’Oréal, Lancôme, the Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montréal (MAC), the Royal British Colombia Museum and many others.
Claude Théberge has gained honours and recognition for his talent and originality many times throughout his career.
