Technique: Oil, pastel, watercolor, charcoal
Louis Tremblay was born in 1949, in Baie-Saint-Paul.
Between 1980 and 1985, he studied at the University of Quebec in Chicoutimi. He continued his studies in art history at Laval University in 1985 and 1986, then again in 1991. Even though he is a self-taught artist, he grew up in fertile ground for the development of a talent that led me to paint at a very young age: “I spent my youth with parents who were art lovers. » Louis Tremblay's father was a friend of the painter René Richard; the latter's encouragement and support allowed him to begin the profession with confidence.
In 1969, he won the Grand Prix at the Baie-Saint-Paul Symposium, a six-week trip to France. Around thirty exhibitions across Quebec quickly established the painter on the national artistic scene. He is a member of the Institute of Figurative Arts.
Using different techniques, his subjects include semi-abstract landscapes, rural scenes, particularly from Baie-Saint-Paul, Kamouraska and the Gaspé region. Louis Tremblay has developed a personal and updated mastery of figurative painting, which he often pushes to the limit of abstraction.
