Born in Ste-Perpétue, Quebec, Robert Roy at first worked in his family's general store. However, when his father retired and discovered painting as a hobby, Robert, who was just 18, also became fascinated with painting and colour. As a result, he spent all his free time working on his technique and capturing on canvas all that inspired him.

In Ste-Perpétue, Robert Roy drew and painted his surroundings from all angles, but he was soon ready to discover new horizons. He left his hometown to travel the world and has been to the Americas, Europe, Australia, Asia, and as far afield as the Fiji islands. His travels in fifty of the most important cities in the world including, Vancouver, Paris, New York, Malaga, Brussels, Sydney and Honolulu, have inspired his art and given the artist an appreciation of the colourful panaroma that exists around us.

After returning to Québec, Robert Roy studied art at the University of Quebec in Trois-Rivières, continued to work on developing his technique, and participated in numerous exhibitions. Inspired by people in movement or street scenes, Roy’s paintings are characterised by freedom of movement and a lively expressionist style in which colour and emotion reigns. His desire is to capture the moment in all its complexities by painting what he sees and by generously sharing what he feels with the viewer.

In fact, Robert Roy’s appreciation for life is felt in all his work, because he likes to paint as he likes to live; that is with great pleasure and joie de vivre.

Born on 1957. Nationality is Canadian
