Alain Provost

Artist Resume

BIOGRAPHY: 

March 2016 marks the beginning of Alain Provost’s artistic career.
For 28 years, Provost worked at Radio-Canada (CBC) as a conceptual graphic designer, specializing in prime time television events (galas, elections, Olympics, documentaries…).
He has also been assigned the role of producer, designer and artistic director for many of these special projects. He developed scenarios, drew storyboards, and worked hand in hand with various departments (music studios, makeup, costumes, accessories, etc.).

He directed film sets, was in charge of graphic design, and with the assistance of casting agencies, coordinated auditions.
For two years, Provost served as creator and director of special effects for notable documentaries such as “L’histoire du Canada” et “La fierté d’un peuple”.
According to the artist, his prosperous career is a result his passion for the visual arts. His work has earned him five Gémeaux Awards, recognition on the international platform, and more than fifty prestigious prizes. Twice (in 2002 and 2003) Provost was awarded the most coveted awards: The North America’s Quantel Artist of the year as well as the International Quantel Artist of the year. These prizes were presented to him by Jann Carl and Mark Steines, from entertainment Tonight, and in front of an audience of 4000 people.

artistic approach: 

Provost’s work is a contemporary exploration and a manifestation of both the artist’s pure honest expression and the array of possibilities that the technological world offers him. Always exceeding his aptitude with various techniques, his sublime work depicts the human expression in all its glory. The body, its gestures, its form and sensuality is a recurring subject and source of inspiration in Provost’s work. His ever-evolving creative process brings out the vulnerability, and striving course of the human: in other words the weight of our existence. From a single image or photographed, he flirts with paint, digital and drawing to extract all of its secrets and emerge into its historic, its DNA. His larger pieces offer a more immersive and elude escape into the complexity of the soul. Brushstrokes, photography, effects of transparency or opacity give depth, multidimensionality and spirit to the whole of the work. Provost takes inspiration from his surroundings and existence.
