Richard Hétu was born in Sorel in 1950. He is a self-taught artist who experiments with the colour and texture of his oils. He puts forward a world filled with characters, and animals in a real and surreal style. His paintings are imbued with a medieval atmosphere or a style inspired by the Renaissance, full of originality, softness and familiar simplicity.
Richard Hétu leaves room for imagination and fantasy in his works. He considers that he has achieved his goal if his art can serve to trigger the mechanisms of dreams.
