Charest is a Quebec artist shown in galleries for the past
At first a specialist in communications, Gilles reoriented his
career towards the visual arts in the mid-1990s.
He undertook developing a contemporary style and an approach in
tune with current artistic trends while maintaining a poetic
approach in themes and didactic, narrative and anecdotal
Just as comfortable in painting as in sculpture, he also adapts
his artistic language to rarely used media such as slate,
navigating between painting and sculpture.
Gilles Charest is active in Quebec but also elsewhere in Canada,
the United States and has participated in events in Europe.
