Richmond Arts Coalition


Over the years, Jean Duguay has produced an interesting body of abstract artwork. His work ranges from complicated freelance designs done in black and white with architect pens (which he calls his signature work) to these elaborate colorful paintings on canvas. And then comes along these structured pieces, calculated and drawn with precision like the image “ cube “. Jean believes an artist should have the freedom to explore the field of art and not limit yourself. After all, the work is from the same artist, so it must be a continuation, a constant learning process. According to Jean, there is a mysterious connection in his work that leads one piece to the next. It just happens.

His work was recently chosen by the Federation of Canadian Artists’ Painting On The Edge competition for the second time in five years, and on Saturday, October 1st, he will be exhibiting his work as a featured artist at the Silk Art Gallery in Port Moody.
