Jean Lemieux was born in Quebec City in 1946. At the age of 9 years old, he was already attending the Saturday Workshops of Fine Arts in Quebec City.
He graduated from Laval University where he obtained a Bachelor degree in Graphic Communications. Thereafter, he became a teacher of Illustration at the School of Visual Arts of the same University. During the same period, he started a silkscreen shop where he printed his own unique works for more than fifteen years; he also printed many artworks from highly-acclaimed artists.
From 1997, he has devoted his art exclusively to watercolours and oil paintings on canvas; he has explored color schemes from which we can see the luminosity of the situation depicted.
A great lover of the nature and of his own city, Québec, LEMIEU grasps part of the places and individuals to describe them in particular situations. For LEMIEU, an image without a title does not mean anything.
The artworks by LEMIEU are subject to develop our own imagination to continue the work initiated.
LEMIEU passed away on April 11, 2011, at the age of 65 years old.
