Claude Tousignant
(1932) Les Plasticiens

Born in Montreal, Quebec in 1932, Claude Tousignant always knew he wanted to be an artist. He attended school at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts School of Art and Design and graduated in 1952. Upon graduation he became a part of the Plasticiens art group, focusing on experimental styles of abstract painting as well as the Montreal Association of Non-Figurative artists.

With their vibrant colours and large size, Tousignant's paintings can be categorized in several ways: minimalist, expressionist and abstractionist.
