Desrosiers, Jean-Guy

About Jean-Guy Desrosiers

A native of Sorel, Desrosiers is often found painting in the streets of Old Quebec, his adopted city. A Landscapist, his style is vigorous yet airy. His carefully planned work is most noticeable for a lack of superfluous details. A confirmed romantic, Desrosiers uses warm tones and an expert appreciation for light to conjure up fairy castles and a hint of the ethereal in sometimes charming but more often worn and tired buildings. His subjects include old Quebec City, the rural countryside and still life canvases. Jean Guy Desrosiers is above all an enduring and innovative painter with a strong personal style.
