Time to get wet again, I mean, my paintings... as the AQUART Festival is back in Québec. I will have my 4th exhibition underwater with Aquart at the bottom of the Flintkote Quarry where my Matador (2010) is permanently displayed

You'll be able to dive also in the permanent collection of the Underwater Museum.

More and directions... and all my exhibitions with Aquart (including in the Olympic swimming pool Monreal ).
7 of my sketchbooks about Sharks are touring with the Brooklyn Art Library, a sequel of the Sketchbook projects started in 2010 to be an "Encyclopedia of Sharks" are now on its six month trek across North America. You can check out the full tour schedule here or on the left column.
On August 10th will start THE 6TH ANNUAL CELEBRITY AUCTION !
I will be glad to talk to you about it, about my passion for the sharks, about my support to many organizations working to let the public know the facts about this amazing creature. I can do it, for the benefit of the Shark Research Institute, if you bid during it "Shark Celebrity Auction", starting soon.
How it works: Bid on a shark expert or celebrity that lives or works nearby, unless you are willing to drive or fly to their location. The winning bidder pays for the celebrity’s meal, and may bring guests.
Shark Research Institute will introduce each winning bidder to his or her shark celebrity. The two then set a mutually convenient date, time and place to get together within 365 days of the close of the auction.
The auction starts August 10th, runs for 10 days. The auction catalog is on the Shark Research Institute’s home page at www.sharks.org, and will have a link to directly enter the auction as soon as the auction opens.
Shark Research Institute is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Winning bids are deductible as charitable contributions from US Federal 2013 income taxes. More Details.
I will be available mostly in the Fort Lauderdale/Miami area, with opportunities in France (Paris, Fontainebleau, Angers in January), Chicago (Feb), Columbus, OH (March), NYC (March), or at the ends of the earth if ticket provided !
Group of people welcome. In bonus I will draw on the table…
Note that all my new original paintings of the year will be unveiled at Art Basel Miami in December and not, as the 17 previous year at DEMA in Las Vegas . A virtual digital exhibition with a special discount will be provided to Dema attendees for compensation.
