Born in Montreal in 1929, Normand Hudon is Quebec artist who studied at the École des Beaux-Arts de Montréal and then the Académie Montmartre in Paris (1949). He died in Montreal on January 8th 1997.
While in Paris Hudon met many influential personalities including Picasso and Léger. His work has been exhibited regularly since 1947 at the Salon du Printemps of the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts and other galleries in Québec, Canada and abroad.
Also renowned as a caricaturist, Hudon’s caustic drawings have appeared over the years in Montreal newspapers such as La Presse and Le Devoir. Hudon’s irreverent eye consistently influenced his paintings, which usually depict familiar Montreal neighbourhoods and characters.
By the end of the 1970s, Hudon finally focuses his work entirely on oil painting. Through his collaboration with le Balcon d’art and its partners, Hudon’s oeuvre became an essential part of Quebec’s figurative art heritage.
He leaves a massive body of work present in most major collections and his popularity and the vigour of his market only get better almost two decades after his passing.
