David Langevin paints the stillness of the wilderness landscape juxtaposed with the dramatic play of compositional elements, light and colour. Contrast is the underlying theme in all of David’s paintings. This talented draughtsman uses a profound knowledge of materials and techniques combined with a brilliant sense of design and drama to create striking renditions of the Canadian wilderness.
Born and raised in the Eastern Townships of Quebec, David began drawing and painting before starting school. After receiving a B.F.A. from the University of Ottawa, his restless desire to perfect his skills led him to continue his studies and research at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Canadian Conservation Institute in Ottawa and McGill University where he obtained a Masters Degree in Art Education. After spending several years teaching art, David continues to lecture and give workshops on the “Craft of Painting”.
David has been painting full-time since 1994 and is rapidly gaining recognition for his dynamic and original landscapes and “Treescapes”. His work is admired and appreciated by art lovers, collectors and artists alike, and this is reflected in the growing success he enjoys as an artist.
David’s work is exhibited in a number of galleries from Montreal across Canada including a number of galleries in British Columbia. David’s art book “David Langevin: Favourite Paintings” is now available for $29.95 by contacting Hampton Gallery. Act fast, however, as the book is almost sold out!
