Jean-Paul Riopelle

The feeling of space, you find it in the leaf of a tree. A leaf represents a whole forest. What is important is to see it.

Jean-Paul Riopelle was born in Montreal, Canada in 1923. From childhood he starts to draw and paint. He studies at the Polytechnic School, then spends a brief and disappointing period at the School of Fine Arts and at the Furniture School in Montreal. Riopelle trains mainly under Paul-Emile Borduas who is at the top of the avant-garde and surrealismists. Riopelle produces his first abstract works . . .
