Anatoles St-Onge : His artistic process
As a gifted portraitist, Anatole St-Onge explores the historical importance of Indigenous personalities, more too often invisible in history books. The historical figures he paints seem to come alive again before our eyes.
The artist wants to highlight the contemporary, modern and engaging aspect of Indigenous leadership in Quebec, among others inspired by the Idle No More movement.
