Julien Perreault, Canadian Visual Artist
CAPSQ and VANS member

Artist Bio

Julien Perreault grew up in Le Bic, a small village bordered by the St. Lawrence River and its islands, a few hundred kilometers from the Capitale-Nationale.

He learned abstract painting on his own, lulled by the artistic influences of his aunt, the Quebecoise painter and photographer Céline Côté, then developed his skills with the help of his mentor, Moroccan painter Hayat-Sami.

He was fascinated by the work of Marcel Barbeau, the surrealist representations of the human body by Steve Otis, as well as the resonance of industrial architecture in the works of Marc Gosselin.

A Jack-of-all-trades, he did studies in the arts, literature, and communications, then office automation: micro-publishing and hypermedia, business administration as well as multimedia… without finishing anything, however. He finally enlisted in the Royal Canadian Navy to discover the world and live extraordinary experiences. An immeasurable source of inspiration!

Good winds, good seas!

Artist Statement

My work explore climatic events, human impacts, and calls on the population to act in the fight against climate change.

Searching for pure and liberated expression, with no criticism of the movement of thought, I question the place of affectivity in the study of forms and materials.

I work in successive layers, letting body movements compose their own narrative. I use natural and/or recycled materials such as sand, hemp, plastic, porcelain, and glass to produce my pieces. I use different techniques and tools to offer maximum flexibility to my creative flow.

I find inspiration in the news from yesterday and today. The consequences of climate change are everywhere. All you have to do is open your eyes – or use Google – to see it happening. The planet is sending alarm signals to humanity, which in turn is constantly sweeping them away with the back of its hand.
