Bolieu artiste peintre québécoise en art abstrait

About me

I am a painter and visual artist born in Montreal in 1964, graduated in visual arts from Collège Marie-Victorin then from the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQÀM) and finally, graduated in advertising illustration from Collège Salette._cc781905-5cde-3194 -bb3b-136bad5cf58d_ I have had a career in teaching the arts to adults for more than 4 decades and, at the same time, a career as a solo artist for the past 25 years.

Quebec artist, I am a native of Montreal and it is now in the Laurentians region that I deposit my life and practice my art there with passion. heart  from this abundant nature, an incessant source of healing, that I create myworks et  receive my students.  

I have gone through several ages of my life and still to this day, I remain convinced of the essential benefits of artistic creation, I think it  elevates the spirit by giving it extra soul and helps to vibrate the entire planet.
I therefore believe that the work of an artist is one of great importance:  de la conception d'une work,  to its realization and to the varnish.
I think the same of sharing knowledge with my students, this sharing develops, elevates and reveals the talent of others.

My mission:  by theheart and for fun, sculpt the brain by making it discover what it does not know.

Transformer l’univers visuel, émotif et mental du spectateur en invitant son imagination à percevoir ce qu'elle ne capte pas au premier regard et lui permettre de découvrir ce que son cerveau ne reconnaît pas tout de suite. 

About my art

Always, I paint in a state of grace!  I feed my inspiration  of happiness, let it be  large or small, touching the beautiful and vast that Life offers.  And I talk to you about it a lot  …on my paintings.

When I design a painting, I address you that I have the impression of knowing long before meeting you;  I write to you with the inks of my brushes that I slide on my textures , shaping many shots that flourish under the subtleties of a multitude of superimposed nuances where it is good to travel, take refuge and dream.  My paintings allow to be move.


I breathe into each painting a story which, through the prism of your gaze, becomes the one you inhabit and the one which evolves at the rhythm of the events of your life, like a philosophical tale which is renewed with each re-reading:  

it is the magic of abstraction which operates. 

I like to play !


I am an experienced technician:  the materials appeal to me and the colors speak loudly to me!  My technique is mixed.

I juggle with structural mortar, stencils, papers.  I embed architectural pieces, glass, wood and metal.


I play with acrylic inks, acrylic pastes, oil colors, crayons, markers, spray paints, gouache, pastels and dry pigments. 

I love light so much that I use it as an intrinsic component of the work, I use metallic and mica films which are authentic light sensors. 


I create one-of-a-kind contemporary works that have two distinct personalities:  one under ambient light and a completely different one under spotlights.

Finally, I offer you my paintings sealed in their epoxy resin case.
