Barbeau, Marcel

Marcel Barbeau was born in Montreal in 1925. He has been painting more than seventy years with remarkable fervor and passion. He has to his credit an impressive corpus of works: paintings, sculptures, drawings, collages, prints in addition to having directed multidisciplinary in music and dance and contemporary performance. The list of his exhibitions is uplifting because he showed his works in prestigious galleries and museum around the world.

Continually looking for new ways to manipulate the shape and light, the evolution of his work is captivating. Barbeau received the 2013 Governor-general’s award in Visual arts and media arts. This award is in addition to the numerous awards he received during his long career.
