BOULET, André (1932)

Self-taught artist André Boulet graduated from the Institut de Technologie de Hull (1952). Experimenting initially with drawing and painting, he turned his attention to stone sculpture in 1987 and explored working in bronze after internships with Donald Liardi and Jules Lasalle. Boulet has created string instruments similar to the violin, deforming them to give them their own personality and even endowing them at times with a human form. He has participated in more than forty solo and group exhibitions and received several awards and mentions, including First Prize from the jury at the Société des Arts de Mont-Tremblant (2005) and First Prize at Blainville-Art (1997) during the exhibition Sculptures et Photographies. Boulet’s work can be found in private and corporate collections in Canada, the United States, Germany, Monaco and Japan.
