Véronique Besançon

Fine artist



Montreal-based, self-taught artist Véronique Besançon following the European immigration movements of the early 1900; of Jewish Hungarian and Russian, French heritage she was raised in France before immigrating to Canada in 1997 armed with her multicultural origins. Always surrounded by art, Besançon has experimented with writing, contemporary dance in Paris, theater in the south of France and for the last ten years, with the visual arts. Her paintings, a reconstruction of her personal journey are inspired by the multiple paths taken through life. Always present in her paintings, the freedom of movement and thought are visually expressed by her rich mixed Mediterranean and north european palette of colors and varied brush strokes. She developed her own and original expressionist style. In 2008, Véronique Besançon presented her work for the first time. This is when she discovered the pleasure of sharing and discussing her work with the public. Since then she has shown her work in more than fifty exhibitions, in solo and group shows, in Québec, New-York and Brazil. Her art works are now in many private collections in France, USA and Canada.
