Biography

Jean-Guy Desrosiers was born in Sorel, Québec, in 1934. Very early he moved to Québec City and has always been inspired by it. He studied Fine Arts at the École Technique in Ottawa and the Academy of Fine Arts in Québec. He has also been a teacher of fine arts in Québec City. He is a member of the Charlesbourg Artistic Society and the Monte-Carlo International Arts Guild. Despite all that, he calls himself a self-taught painter.

“A horse drawn carriage slowly wanders under the hot summer sun, what a charming little water colour, swiftly painted and served by an inventive combination of touch and colour, I have owned this exquisite painting for more than thirty years.

For Jean-Guy Desrosiers, everything is a subject to paint. He paints during the day, the evening and sometimes at night. Landscapes, still life, people and occasionally abstracts. One must see him at the scene; in the heart of old Quebec, at the seaside or on the fringes of Charlevoix, sketch after sketch, they complement his studio work. As with all artists, it is there he finds solitude, the essential peace that allows him to further his art to its completion.

Images sketched here and there are reorganised on his canvas in infinite variants. Arising from fantasy; snowbound villages, sunny alleys and frozen ponds, where happy-go-lucky skaters dance, small harbours where fishing is not important, still life, violins, guitars and other objects that have no other purpose but to embellish the boundaries of his canvas. His paintings perfectly describe his character. They are whimsical, cheerful, teasing at times, endearing and free of many a painter’s fear of a white canvas.

Jean-Guy Desrosiers has always said that being a painter is the greatest profession in the world. He uses his heart, his emotion, his ardour and his proven technique; as if he were twenty years old again, he starts over day after day, reshaping his painting, reinventing the world in his familiar colours which we recognize as being those of Desrosiers.” – Simon Carmichael, 2006
