Antoine C. was born in 1980, in a rural environment. He was introduced to drawing by his family at a very young age, and his passion for painting and illustration never vanished.
Aged 18, he decides to pursue Plastic Arts and Art History studies at UQAM, in Canada. There, he develops a special interest for the 20th century, especially cubism, fauvism and surrealism. He is also attracted by the New York School and American painting from the 40's and the 50's.
Antoine C. also obtains a diploma in advertising, allowing him to work as artistic and creative director for renowned interactive communication agencies. It is in this context that he explores digital and visual technologies.
He is a modern artist who truly takes pleasure from painting. Freedom is essential to him as he only selects subjects he enjoys, without much attention for established conventions. His artwork perfectly mirrors this liberated attitude.
He first exposed his work in Quebec, in 2007. Since, he has been exploring his inner pleasure through his brush, tirelessly preparing exhibitions for 2010.
