     Michel Lapensée:

Born in Verdun in 1947, Michel Lapensée started painting at age nine. After high school he studied in advertising at Studio 5316 and at the Famous Artist School. During the day he worked as a postman to pay for his education and continued this trade for 12 years. After organizing himself three solo exhibitions, he finally realized his dream, in 1977, of devoting his full time to painting.

Self-taught artist and versatile painter Michel Lapensée masters portraits, urban scenes as well as still lives and anecdotal scenes. He is equally at home in oil, pastel and watercolors and he possesses a single objective: to paint for his pleasure. His vision is both global and rich in detail. None of his paintings reflect a quick treatment because a scene has no value for him unless it... talks. While in Limoges, France he learned porcelain painting.

Since 1984, his name was linked to the Montreal Canadiens for whom he has produced important works. He has painted portraits of many personalities such as Maurice Richard, Jean Béliveau, Guy Lafleur, Serge Savard, Mario Lemieux, Mohamed Ali, Céline Dion and many others. His works hang in many private and corporate collections: Bell Canada, Shell Canada, Montreal Canadiens, Washington Capitals, Colorado Avalanches, Royal Bank, Bombardier, Société des Alcools du Québec, Provigo, Réno-Dépot, Loblaws, NHL, Hydro-Québec.
