Lafrance, Jean-Pierre

Born in Montreal in 1943, Jean-Pierre Lafrance studied at the École des Beaux-Arts de Montréal in 1959. In 1974, he discovered the art of sculpture with Jordi Bonet. In 1984, he learned engraving at Atelier de l'Ile. Jean-Pierre Lafrance's art can be characterized by his intense and spontaneous brush strokes. Through the abstraction of his paintings emerge structures which guide the eye towards more evocative forms. The artist's sensibility is reflected in his luminous hues and rich textures. His works captivate the senses and nourish the imagination.
