Patrick Pépin

Patrick Pépin is a Canadian artist born in 1976 in Lac-Mégantic, Quebec. The artist has been painting, drawing and sculpting since childhood. Travelling around the world has endowed him with an unquenchable thirst for creation amd his untiring journeys are the basis of his polysemous art, where the colours are the subject.

Pépin rigorously pursues a consequential approach where the light of a Peruvian or Spanish landscape can be recomposed in an algebraic, or even mathematical way, then reduced to offer a surgical composition of the visible light spectrum. He owes his bold success to the meticulous care with which he paints his lightscapes in a hyper-realistic way.

A self-taught artist with a sharp, rough instinct, Patrick Pépin is inspired by artists such as Augustin Lesage, Jackson Pollock, Paul-Émile Borduas and Jean-Paul Riopelle. Over time Pépin has refined his approach, his signature, and an unusual style; his paintings can be found in every part of the world, however the Québec City artist, keeps a zen attitude towards his success.
There is something sacred in Pépins work. He’s a workshop man, who dips his brushes in paint with great dedication, just as a child who, every day, discovers the world with wonder.

Artist Statement
"When I was very young, my mother had a cancer and the doctor saw me and said: 'Your mom is very sick, she might die, you must be very strong, do you understand?' Back home, I went in the garden, took a pebble and carved a drawing on a rock. In my childish mind, this was the only way to escape death; I had to leave a mark somewhere. That was the first time I realized I was alive and it was my first contact with art as well." – Patrick Pépin
