Biography

Roger Alexandre was born in 1942 in Montreal and has lived in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu since 1946. With more than 30 years of experience as a painter and teacher, he has produced numerous solo and group exhibitions in Quebec, in Canada, the United States and France. He also won first prize in the poster competition organized by the United Nations Association for the International Year of Peace in 1986.

Despite being mainly self-taught, he also studied painting with Brother Jérôme. He was then able to immerse himself in the group of Automatists formed around Paul-Émile Borduas, whose art was intended as a writing technique not controlled by consciousness.

His style translates into a stylized and stripped-down realism, as well as a palette of soft colors that fit into an absolute contrast. His paintings encourage contemplation and introspection thanks to a constant change of scenery. Through his art, he creates a limitless world.
