Robert P. Roy

Québecois artist Robert P. Roy was interested in drawing and painting from a very young age. Torn between art or science as a career choice, he elected engineering at the Université de Sherbrooke. He did, however, continue to take art lessons during those studies and also studied painting at McGill University, Concordia University and with independent teachers. He later studied at the Saïdye Bronfman Centre for two years. He also attended numerous intensive workshops. In 1995, he won first prize at the Concours d’Art de Pierrefonds and an honorable mention in 1997. He had his first solo gallery exhibition in 2005 and was named the 2006 Artist of the Year of the Kirkland Artists Association. In 2008, he won second prize at the prestigious art competition Rêves d’Automne in Baie St-Paul, Charlevoix, Qc. In 2010, he was selected to represent Québec in an artistic and cultural exchange with Spain called Couleurs Sur le Monde, part of the Rêves d’Automne artistic annual event. This week-long event with renowned Spanish artists was a rich artistic and cultural experience. He participates in numerous other art symposiums as well. Magazin Art, an important art magazine in Québec, published an article on his work in its Winter 2009-2010 edition (see below).
