Normand Hudon

Born in Montréal in 1929, Normand Hudon eventually reached the École des Beaux-Arts de Montréal and then the Académie Montmartre in Paris (1949). Normand Hudon began exhibiting his work regularly in 1947 at the Salon du Printemps of the Montréal Museum of Fine Art, and on several other occasions, elsewhere in Québec, in Canada and abroad.  In the City of Lights, he met many influential personalities including Picasso and Léger. Many will always remember him as a caricaturist, famously gifted in shaking the pedestals beneath public figures.  More than a humorist, Normand is a poster artist, illustrator, adman, actor, radio and television host and author.  No matter what Hudon was doing, he was always painting, often using mixed media.  His colours, both sombre and highly contrasted, underline the purpose of the drawing.  Black clothing offset red noses and ruddy cheeks.  Using people and objects for his own purposes, Hudon constantly shows movement. He drew upon daily life in popular neighbourhoods and his irreverence struck the dull world of clerics and judges.
