Francois Chartier


Born and raised in Montreal, Chartier was always interested in the visual arts and for 25 years, he
toiled as an art director and illustrator in magazine publishing and advertising. Working for many
well-established Canadian agencies and having many successes along the way. This all changed when he turned 50, Chartier decided to change course and took up painting full time and he is among the most renowned and revered Hyperrealist artists working today.

In his most recent paintings Chartier focuses on one specific object surrounded by highly reflective
materials, such as cellophane and water adding a heightened sense of luminosity to his large-scale
compositions. A master of his trade.
