Alain Buscarlet received a degree in painting and three-dimensional research from the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture et des Arts Visuels (ENSAAV) of the La Cambre school in Brussels in 1974. In 1977, he completed a Master’s degree in monumental painting and taught at ENSAAV from 1977 to 1988 before moving to Quebec. In 1996, after working for more than twenty years in the field of sculpture, Buscarlet founded ABUSCA DESIGN to apply his expertise in cement-derived materials to the field of furniture design. He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland, France, Poland, the United States and Canada, and has also produced works that are integrated into architecture, including at the head office of Ciné-Revue in Brussels, the Bogenhausen Hospital in Munich, the Boitsfort Protestant Church in Belgium, the Bellefeuille municipal library in Quebec and the Bibliothèque du Frère Marie-Victorin in Saint-Jérôme.
