Biography

Native of Victoriaville, Francis Gingras studied visual arts at Trois-Rivières and graphic communications at Laval University in Quebec City. After dedicated to his profession for several years, the artist returned to his first passions are painting and drawing.

Since then, his reputation as a painter continues to grow. Award-winning public during exhibitions, he got out quickly and is now regularly approached by various international magazines to explain his approach and technique.

His art is characterized by lively approach to his subjects, his attention to detail as well as its rendering very realistic.It draws on elements of life, old objects and some prominent figures, current or past. He particularly acrylic and graphite. His favorite subjects are still lifes, portraits, history and music.

His approach is based on the feeling that it was almost able to grasp objects or touching characters, be there and be part of the picture. Sometimes it takes us to another time and other times in a more contemporary style. It is for him a constant quest to interpret the textures and brightness of his subjects realistically, taking into account the balance of the composition and color accuracy. His reference artists are Jacques Louis David, Norman Rockwell, William Bouguereau, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo Buonarroti.
