Michel Blouin

Michel Blouin’s life and art are a testament to the profound connection between emotions and artistic expression. Born and residing on Île d’Orleans, Blouin has passionately dedicated himself to painting and poetry, two realms in which he thrives and creates. His work is characterized by its rich palette of emotions, from joy to melancholy, expressed through vibrant and symbolic visual language. In the realm of art, he brings to life the beauty and diversity of existence.

Blouin’s artistic journey is one that aligns with the instincts of an autodidact. He boldly follows his creative impulses and lets the moment guide him, giving way to the uninhibited freedom of expression. His paintings are the reflection of his poetic daydreams, where colours represent feelings, and shapes embody thoughts. His use of mixed media, including oil, acrylic, pastel, and collage, further enhances the depth and intensity of his art.

The artist’s exploration of the human experience, and the history of the world, is unmistakable in his work. He weaves his own representation of the cycles of life portraying a fervent desire to live without compromise. His creations stand as a reflection of the world’s profound and eternal clamour.

Although Blouin's style maybe appear direct, instinctive, and even naïve, it would be a mistake to classify his work solely as “art brut”. His awareness of art history and his ability to employ a unique visual vocabulary showcase his talent for storytelling, touching hearts and at times, denouncing issues with a touch of irony.
