Biography from the Archives of askART

Clement Lemieux (1946)

He is a well known Canadian sculptor and painter, born in Lévis, Quebec, a suburb (across the St. Lawrence River) of his current home Quebec City.

His most famous medium is vividly colored, highly polished, figurative and abstract wood carvings.  He has also created abstract expressionist paintings in acrylics.  The subjects of his sculptures include figures in movement, dancers, and family; and as an abstractionist - color, shape and texture.  His styles are Fauvism*, Surrealism* and Abstraction*. AskART have excellent illustrations of his work.

Lemieux is a mostly self taught artist; however his previous jobs as a car body repairman and cabinet maker are often credited with informing and influencing his unique painting and woodworking skills.  He has also attended sculpture classes.  

He's been exhibiting his work since the early 1990s and has been a full-time artist since about 2000.  His first one man show was in 1993.  He exhibited in the New York Art Expo for the first time in 1994.

The current venues for his works include several prominent commercial galleries in Quebec such as la Galerie d'art du Château Frontenac, Quebec City; Galerie Clarence Gagnon, Montreal, Quebec; Galerie d'art Yvon Desgagnés, Baie St-Paul, Québec; and Galerie d'art Courtemanche, Magog, Quebec.

His works are also frequently traded country wide on the Canadian auction market.

Biography from the Archives of askART
He was born in Lévis in 1946.

A self-taught sculptor and painter, he has dedicated himself to art since 1992.  His training in mechanic, karate, and his family of twelve children, allow and inspire him to make beautiful works with brilliance, color and physical shapes, which inspire energy and fantasy.

He has participated in many solo exhibitions in New York and across Canada.  Since 2003, the Circus of the Sun special series of wooden sculptures has been recognized worldwide.
