Francois Dubeau

453f4427f741d9cb6634e5ca404Francois Dubeau grew up in and around Montreal, Canada.  He has always had a passion for drawing, photography and music. Dubeau first showed his drawings to the public in 2004.  His work has been exhibited internationally, and he has been commissioned to create extraordinary logos for many companies.

A long-time computer enthusiast, he has gradually integrated technology in his artistic creation process.  Combing the traditional techniques of the engraver, of the illustrator and of the painter, Dubeau’s work is as timeless as it is thoroughly modern.  Using a digital stylus, Dubeau explores raw, boundless movement on his virtual canvas, a random gesture always serving as the starting point.  A single line often translates into hours of work, as a stroke is forever repeated – never twice the same way – until the artist is satisfied with the end result.  Once a drawing is complete, it is transferred to canvas, paper and other products.  For his canvas work, Dubeau picks-up traditional paints and brushes to create unique free-flowing pieces with exceptional depth and movement.
