Carl Camiré

Artistic approach

For Carl Camiré, to paint is to extend the life that surrounds him onto a canvas. He has always put the environment at the center of his concerns. The tree is the symbol par excellence of life in perpetual evolution. His way of representing nature is unique, we feel enveloped by its saturated colors and generous textures. We find in his paintings a spontaneity, a joy of living and a freshness that become the very essence of his works.




After completing studies in Visual Arts at Cégep Édouard-Montpetit and a degree in Commercial Illustration at Studio Salette, Carl Camiré first devoted himself to his position as vice-president artistic director for Plan Design magazine for six years. Then, feeling in him a growing desire for artistic freedom, he accepted a one-year position as Set Designer in Guadeloupe. During this year spent in the Caribbean, he painted a lot. After his return to Quebec, his head overflowing with inspiration and warm colors, he continues to paint with passion and renewed energy.
