This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Gilles Emmanuel Gingras (1932 –2002)

Gilles E. Gingras was a painter, engraver, and sculptor who was born in Magog, Quebec.  His mediums include oil, acrylic, watercolor, red chalk, pencil and liquid crystals.  His style could be termed impressionist, but most of his work lacks the vibrant colors to fit comfortably into that category.

In 1952, he earned his first post-secondary diploma from the Quebec Conservatory of Music.  The following year, he began his formal training in fine arts at the Canadian Arts Academy.

In 1958, he began exhibiting his work; the first exhibition was held in Longueuil (suburb of Montreal).  While art was a major interest in his life he also worked for the Canadian government as a representative of the Foreign Assistance Bureau in Western Africa where he painted several landscapes.  And in 1965 had a showing in Nigeria.

He was considered a landscape artist who is most recognized for painting with subtle tones and colors.  His work has a unique look compared with the dominant trends in 20th Century Canadian art.  It is easily recognizable by someone even casually familiar with it.  However, throughout his career, he experimented with several styles and subjects; even surrealism and abstraction.

He was voted 'Painter of the Year' by a McGill  University Council (1969).  He has had numerous shows in Canada, the United States, France, and Africa.
