The artist engraver, designer, illustrator and founding member of the Circular Workshop, Louis-Pierre Bougie, is dead.
Born in 1946, Louis-Pierre Bougie was a genius of intaglio, this engraving technique which consists in drawing by engraving in a sheet of metal. Louis-Pierre Bougie had explored all the processes, whether it be the mezzotint, the burin, aquatint or etching. He was also the engraver of gravity. Strange tales with transformations, complex metamorphoses involving plants, objects, animals and the outlines of evanescent characters, with often truncated bodies.
The engraver had exhibited abroad (in Germany, Spain, United States, France, Hong Kong, Sweden and Switzerland), in museums (such as at the Musée d’art contemporain de Baie-Saint-Paul in 2014), in the Trois-Rivières Print Biennale and in large galleries, such as Graff, Lacerte and Eric Devlin but also at the 1700 La Poste art center, where he was the first artist to occupy the space, in 2013.
