Born in Montréal, Jacques Clément is a bachelor in visual arts from the University of Quebec in Montréal since 1982. He is a professor at the Saidye Bronfman Center in Montréal where he teaches different painting techniques.
He excels in nudes and their narrative representation: “the body, lying down, sitting full-face or side-on, is merely the starting point to a narrative of images. Through white or haded silhouettes, simple drawings or more complex representations, bodies vary incessantly. Vibrant gestures of daily life represent a series of instants and impressions, each singular moment captivated by [Clément’s] artistic eye or hand.” (John K. Grande). Clément also has a gripping way of captivating Canadian landscapes through a harmonious combination of lively colors.
