About Sylvain Tremblay
Sylvain Tremblay was born in 1966 in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada. After earning a degree in graphic design, he worked as an illustrator for a number of years. Then, in 2002, he made a major career change, deciding to devote himself to painting full time. His work has been shown in Canada and the United States, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. He is represented by a number of galleries on three continents, including the Opera Gallery, Galerie d’art Iris, and the Thompson Landry Gallery.
In addition to creating works for gallery presentation, Tremblay takes part in live painting events and projects that bring art outside the walls. At the moment, he participates until 26th November in “Personal Structure”, an exhibition conceived within the framework of the prestigious Venice Biennale. In June 2017, he presented his documentary in Premiere honouring Leonardo da Vinci at the Château du Clos Lucé in France, the site of Leonardo da Vinci’s last home dedicated exclusively to the life of the great master. During this passage, the Castle Museum acquired the masterful work representing Leonardo da Vinci created directly, by Tremblay, in front of the public. In fall 2016, Sylvain Tremblay is one of three Canadian artists to represent Canada for the G20 in China. In 2014, he produced a large painting in sand in the Dubai desert where, from the top of a hot air balloon, he throwed sand of three different colors on a canvas placed on the ground to reveal the portrait of Sheikh Zayed, mythical character of the United Arab Emirates. This event is a huge success and is being resumed by all Arab media. From 2012 to 2015, Sylvain Tremblay examines the duality between men and women and meets intersex people in France, Morocco, Taiwan and South Africa, where he produces several unique pieces, an artistic video and a book: NO GENDER. In 2015, during an important charity event, he offered a painting to the One Drop Foundation and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation.
In 2012, Tremblay was the guest of the Canadian Embassy at the fourth edition of Canada Week in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Two years previously, the Canada Council for the Arts and Cirque du Soleil presented a Tremblay’s work in the Canada Pavilion at Expo 2010 in Shanghai. In 2005, he showed at the second Beijing International Art Biennale. That same year, he represented Quebec at the Semaine du Québec in Silly, Belgium, with the participation of the Quebec General Delegation in Brussels. He also presented a work in the “Uncensored” show organized by The New Yorker magazine in New York, and in the sixth Art International Zurich contemporary art fair, where he won first place for all four continents in 2004.
Although it was based since 2012 in Dubai where he taught the history of modern art at the Canadian University, Sylvain Tremblay lives and works between New York and Montreal.
