Michel LeBlanc grew up among paintings and colors. Painting has always been a part of his life during his great joys, but also during the darker days.
In August 2008, Michel was the victim of a violent car accident, hit by full force in a face to face by a driver. With both legs crushed, he not only fights for his life but the doctors are trying to prevent him from amputation.
Even if he will never regain the normal use of his legs, Michel LeBlanc strives day after day like a fighter to improve his condition. He is now a member of "Visions sur art Québec" as a professional artist-painter with a disability and recognized as the Quebec painter of Time Square for his scenes in New York. He is the spokesperson for Uniatox's Parcours-Don (drug addiction prevention). He is a member of the Union des Artistes (UDA) as an actor and lecturer.
It is through his lecture entitled "Art Gathers" that he presents his incredible journey. An inspiring and extraordinary testimony!. Over the years, he built an international reputation in the arts with his neo-impressionist cityscapes of New York.
