Normand Hudon

Canadian Grand Master, painter, caricaturist, figurative painter, Normand Hudon was born in Montreal in 1929 (died in 1997). He studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Montreal and L’Académie Montmartre in Paris. His works of great wealth by his sober and contrasting colours are often distinguished by his colourful characters in everyday life (children, judges, sisters ...) and scenes from the countryside, popular and urban areas (village, manor , houses, church, street, convenience store with or without people ...) that allow us a moment to dream of the past.

"With his caricatures, Normand Hudon knew fame and stardom early in television in the 1950s. Seasoned designer, charismatic draftman, full of spirit, he often makes people laugh and smile a public always numerous and appreciative before his prowess.

His painting stood out in the late 1970s. Strongly inspired by his world of caricature, his pictorial work draws from the world of his childhood and the people who were able to laugh at in some ways ... The clergy, lawyers, judges, politicians have been his favorite targets.

Each of his paintings was an amused glance and fun around the foibles sometimes powerful, sometimes the little people. This perhaps explains why today the interest in his work remains as vivid. "
