This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A prominent Canadian painter, printmaker, draftsman, sculptor, muralist and educator, Wilf Perreault was born in Albertville, Saskatchewan; grew up in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; and has been living and working in Regina, Saskatchewan since 1971.

His most well-known medium is acrylic and spray paint on canvas, his most well-known subjects are atmospheric* views of Regina’s snow covered residential back lanes, and his most well-known style is Luminism*. A good illustration of this work is the AskART image Early Departure. Perreault’s other mediums include oil, watercolor, pencil, serigraph* and mixed mediums; his other subjects include portraits, sporting events, landscapes, aerial views, farms, figures, whimsy, allegory*, genre*, social commentary, shape, color and texture; and his other styles include Realism*, Abstract Expressionism* and Fauvism*.

His formal art education began with private art lessons as a child and continued with studies (sculpture) under Otto Rogers (see AskART) and Bill Epp (1930 – 1995) at the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, where Perreault earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (1970) and a Bachelor of Education degree (1971). After graduation he taught high school art in Regina until the mid 1980s when he turned to painting full time.

Perreault’s works have been shown in group exhibitions at the MacKenzie Art Gallery, Regina (1973, 1974, 1975, 1984, 1985, 1986, 2003); Glenbow Museum, Calgary, Alberta (1977); Dunlop Art Gallery, Regina (1977, 1982, 1990);  Mendel Art Gallery, Saskatoon (1979, 1980); and the Winnipeg Art Gallery, Manitoba (1997).

He’s exhibited with the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour* (1977) and the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts* (1997, 2003).  He’s also had a solo exhibition at the MacKenzie Art Gallery, Regina (1978). His works have been exhibited at the Toronto International Art Fair; Seattle Art Fair; Chicago International Exposition; and at Art L.A., Los Angeles. They have also been shown in numerous group and solo exhibitions at important commercial galleries such as the Susan Whitney Gallery (Regina), Douglas Udell Gallery (Vancouver, B.C.), Downstairs Gallery, (Edmonton), Jerald Melberg Gallery (Charlotte, North Carolina), and Mayberry Fine Art (Winnipeg).
