orn in Montreal in 1958, Guy Mourand developed his own passion and talent for fine art in 1999. Like many artists, he has had an alternate career, in this case as a ventilation technician. The success of his paintings have allowed Mourand to devote himself entirely to painting.
Clearly inspired by Modigliani, his paintings were initially not created using a paint brush but rather his own hands and a cloth. Since then his style and technique have evolved. Mourand uses a paint brushto create more passionate and definitive paintings.
The figure’s in Mourand’s paintings are not portraits. Each individual has no age, no nationality and at times, no gender. They are timeless in their simplicity, emoting purity and elegance.
