Yves Gonthier - 10 years of creation in PercéFrom May 26 to October 16, 2022
Born in Chandler, Yves Gonthier returned to his native Gaspé in 1980 after studying visual arts in Quebec City. He built his studio in Val-d’Espoir specifically with the desire to prove that it is possible to succeed as an artist in the region. Through his multiple fields of experience, his artistic interests and a training that includes graphic design, print media, lettering and photography, he understood that versatility is a major asset in the region. “In Quebec City, I worked in the world of communications. I created signs and posters, but my work was becoming too commercial. I felt the need to change my environment, to come back to Gaspésie to reconnect with art and creation,” says the artist.
We invite you to discover, in the artist’s own words, a selection of his creations, all of which were produced over a ten-year period at his studio in Val d’Espoir.
