Meet the New Brunswick Arts Board, Denis Lanteigne!
Denis Lanteigne is from Caraquet. He obtained his BA in psychology from the University of Moncton and began college in Bathurst in 1973 where he pursued courses in graphic arts, sculpture and photography.
After several years in Caraquet in the field of advertising and pursuing art projects, Denis Lanteigne moved to Montreal in 1982. He worked in the field of headwear, in collaboration with his partner. Styles, colors and fabrics lead him to create three-dimensional objects and he continued his approach towards art objects.
In 2003 the artist opened a studio in Caraquet and he continues to work on various sculptural and photography projects. He is the Chair of the Existe Group, a collective of artists who run the Art Gallery Bernard-Jean, and is involved in the Visual Arts Festival in Atlantic. He serves on the board of l’Association des artistes Acadiens professionnels du Nouveau-Brunswick and la Commission des infrastructures culturels de Caraquet.
