LUC DESCHAMPS (1961-2021)
He was born in Ottawa (Ontario) in 1961. Self-taught, he has been interested in painting since his childhood. His studies in architecture have marked him a lot. In 1995, he began a construction project for the family home, for which he designed the plans.
Two years later, he decides to make his dream come true and starts painting full time. Luc travels regularly between his home in the Outaouais and Montreal to make sketches on the spot. He then works his sketches, and enlarges those he prefers in the studio, while having the freedom to make changes.
We quickly recognize the influence of architecture in his paintings. The artist introduces us to corners of Plateau Mont-Royal, Westmount and the ByWard Market area in Ottawa. These paintings also delight us with the atmosphere and charm.
He also devotes himself to the still life, which he admits, is a big challenge: “ it's all in the composition. We must really start from scratch ".
