Charles Carson with owner/director Michel Arseneau
Born in Montreal in 1957, Charles Carson has been devoting himself entirely to his art since 1983. He has participated in numerous exhibitions in Canada, the United States, Europe, Asia and South America.
He spent ten of these productive years living in South America. Carson has gained recognition at the international level and been acclaimed by experts and art historians for his unique technique which they have named “Carsonism”.
Early in his career, the artist employed traditional techniques, gaining inspiration from his environment. His early figurative works left him unsatisfied and he started to lean towards a semi-figurative and extremely personal style of painting. This technique, along with his unique pictorial language rapidly affirmed themselves and his talent was revealed with each new creation.
The artist produces extraordinary works that exhibit sensitivity, depth and liveliness, as well as dynamism and variety of composition that characterize his work. His works are sought after by serious collectors around the world.
His artistic talent has garnered him many honors and distinctions, including seven gold medals on the international stage. Other honors include induction into the Académie Internationale des Beaux-Arts du Québec as “Master of Fine Arts” in 2007, “Artist of the Year” at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts Academia XXI Gala in 2009, recipient of the Leonardo da Vinci and Martin Luther King prizes awarded by Italia del Arte in 2009, to name but a few.
Inglewood Fine Arts is proud to present his works in permanent exhibition.
