Canadian Society of Marine Artists Nautical Artist

Jean Leroux graduated from the École des beaux-arts de Montréal in the mid 1950s. He then started his professionnal career as a sign painter. In the mid 1960s he joined Radio-Canada initially as a mural painter for set backgrounds in television studios. From the late 70s until his retirement, he finished his career as a set designer in the scenic department.

Fascinated by the ocean waves, he always painted transatlantic sailboats and ocean liners. His style combines accurate reproduction of the vessel with his own personnal interpretation of the sky and sea.

Jean was elected to the Canadian Society of Marine Artist in 2015.
