Carl PILOTE

Self taught painter, born in St-Bruno, Lac-St-Jean in 1965. He started out at age 15 with the gouache borrowed from his younger brother, and at 18, he experimented with oil.

A lady who has seen some of his paintings encourages him by offering monetary help. The beginning of the 90s, marks his initiation to acrylic and he is offered to teach. He accepts but only if he does it his own way.

The beginning of the year 2000 looks promising but the destiny says otherwise. Illness takes him away from his family and his art. Three years pass before he dares to take up arms again.

His new direction is much more abstract. His new flame gives him a second wind. She suggests painting with a spatula. Comfortable, he settles at the crossroads between abstract and figurative.
