Claude Bolduc was born in Alma, Quebec and taught himself to paint at the age of 32. His early paintings featured his personal memories or social issues and were depicted in a naïve style. He began exploring ‘the invisible’ a few years later, drawing his inspiration from his own interpretation of the world. The artist attempts to reveal the limits of the parallel universes of consciousness and unconsciousness. A plethora of strange creatures inhabit a sensual and dreamlike world, among mythical and Judeo-Christian imagery. Painting, for Bolduc, is necessary for his survival.
Bolduc has exhibited in Montreal, Toronto, Miami, Los-Angeles, New-York, Detroit, Paris, London, Berlin, Geneva, Florence, and Melbourne. His work is in private collections in Canada, United-States, Europe, and Australia.
