Marc Grandbois is a Quebec-based artist who began painting at a very young age. He developed his skills alongside his mother, who was also a painter, and went on to complete his Fine Arts Degree at Concordia University in 1991.
Grandbois quickly gained notoriety as a watercolor painter between 1992 and 2002, as well as teaching painting and drawing.
Throughout his career, Grandbois has participated in numerous painting events and exhibitions throughout Quebec and the United States. In 2010, he moved to the Saguenay region from the Mauricie region, motivated by the exceptional beauty of the landscape and the unique environment of the fjord. This move also triggered a return to his first passion - plein air painting.
Grandbois' work is characterized by beautiful atmospheric qualities, and expressionistic casual brushstrokes with rich colors. His palette, sometimes subtle, moves towards a fauvism approach and adjusts to suit the ambiences he wants to create. "To paint is at first an inner journey and I firmly believe that the landscape remains very current if it transcends the narrative, and becomes a basis for experimenting with gestures, color and light."
The Nordic landscape has always been a source of inspiration for Grandbois. His works are found in fine galleries across Canada and several collections in Canada, USA, and abroad. Grandbois' paintings showcase his love for nature and his unique vision, making him a distinguished artist in his field.
