Marc Galipeau was born on September 17th in the Monteregie region.
Although an artist by birth, he studied as a special education teacher, a profession he would practice until the age of 28 when he makes the jumps to the uncertain world of professional art.
Thanks to his keen sense of self promotion and his undeniable talent, Marc Galipeau soon found himself a place in art galleries in Montreal, Quebec city and the Eastern Townships.
Through his travels and connections, he built himself a network of contacts that allowed him to start showing his work throughout Canada, the United States and parts of Europe.
Marc Galipeau’s work is instantly recognizable by the soft, dreamlike atmospheres he is able to weave into his acrylic paintings. His characters, often appearing as if out of a dream, are done in true colors rendered in shimmering tones. Galipeau’s style could be said to have a folk art quality but the depth and the work that goes into its execution put him in a style all his own.
A serious and headstrong artist, Marc Galipeau’s career is on a rising curve and shows no sign of slowing down its rise.
