WILF PERREAULT – CANADA150

*Please BYOP* You are looking for a black bison tube.

Saskatchewan has plenty of talented artists. One of its best-known contemporary artists is undoubtedly Wilf Perreault.

Wilf Perreault was born in Albertville in 1947 and his love of art began at an early age. He took private lessons from his neighbour, Ernest Lindner in Saskatoon and studied art and sculpture at the University of Saskatchewan.

He gained commercial success after he moved to Regina, where he worked an art teacher. His first solo exhibition was in 1978. He continues to work on his favourite subject, the special and unique cityscapes represented by Saskatchewan back alleys.

He has received many awards throughout his career, including the silver medal at the Jeux de la Francophonie in Morocco, the Queen's Jubilee Medal, and the Saskatchewan Order of Merit. He has had several exhibitions across Canada and in the United States.

La Saskatchewan regorge d’artistes talentueux, et un de ses représentants contemporains les plus connus est sans aucun doute le peintre Wilf Perreault.

Né à Albertville en 1947, l’amour pour les arts commence très jeune pour Wilf Perreault. Il prendra des leçons privées avec son voisin Ernest Lindner à Saskatoon et étudiera la sculpture et les arts à l’université de la Saskatchewan.

Wilf Perreault connaîtra un certain succès commercial après s’être installé à Regina où il était professeur d’arts. C’est en 1978 qu’il expose pour la première fois en solo. Son sujet de prédilection, sur lequel il travaille toujours aujourd’hui, est la représentation des ruelles de la Saskatchewan, paysages urbains si particuliers et uniques de chez nous.

Il a obtenu de nombreuses reconnaissances au cours de sa carrière, comme la médaille d’argent des Jeux de la Francophonie au Maroc, la médaille du Jubilé de la Reine et l’Ordre du mérite de la Saskatchewan. Il a exposé à plusieurs endroits au Canada et aux États-Unis.
