Normand Boisvert
NORMAND BOISVERT

BIOGRAPHY

Born in the Trois-Rivières in 1950, Normand Boisvert is an artist passionate about the land. Primarily self-taught, Boisvert has been painting, exhibiting and teaching for over 30 years.

With a swirl of colour and texture his oil paintings evoke an emotional response. The movements of his brushstrokes echo the flow of the rivers and hills so close to his heart. His images are laden with paint, transforming the flat canvas into an almost sculptural depiction of the Quebec landscape.

His work is represented in several galleries in Canada, the United States and Europe and can be found in several private and public collections, including the Royal Currency Collection of Canada and museum Pierre Boucher of Trois-Rivières, QC.
