Roger Cantin was born in 1930. He discovered his artistic talent later in life at the age of 34. He then went on to study at Les École de Beaux-Arts, finishing his studies in 1964. Cantin showcased his first exhibition of oil and watercolour paintings in 1966. His work is best known for exhibiting aspects of serenity, which reflects the artist's own personality. Cantin's work can often be identified by its soft tonality. The sombre tones reflect the artist's own shy personality and serene spirit.
Cantin inspiration for his figurative and landscape work has come from his experiences while wandering around Québec City. One of Cantin's favourite activities is perusing antique stores in old Québec City, an activity which commonly results in finding objects that inspire his paintings. His love for Québécois community and culture is evident in his work.
