Originally from Salaberry de Valleyfield, Yvon St-Aubin is a self-taught artist. Musician by trade, he is now living his passion, painting. Painter of explosive colors and bright lights, his painting reflects the sensibility and emotion that we feel looking at these impressive landscapes. He completed arts apprenticeships in various regions of Quebec and mostly in Charlevoix. During a stay in Provence, St-Aubin became highly influenced by the work of Van Gogh, and this marked the moment in his career where of his colour explosion. He began to travel throughout Canada to capture and implement all its vibration and energy into the landscapes that he paints. The rays of light seen in his paintings characterize his work and are now known as his trademark.
In 2002, he was nominated as artist of the year in Charlevoix. He permanently exhibits in several galleries in Quebec and Canada. St-Aubin was also appointed honorary president of the Quebec and New Brunswick Art Shows. His work has been collected by several major private and public corporations and he is represented in galleries throughout Canada, the USA as well as Australia, Europe and Asia.
