Roland Benoit was born in New Liskeard (Ontario) Canada. He studied at the University of Montreal and after his Bachelor’s degree in Arts and Literature, he established in Québec. During many years, he pursued his studies in visual arts (drawing, painting and mixed media) and has given numerous painting and mixed media workshops.

He is inspired by the human soul and nature. These themes are translated symbolically or expressed in lyrical abstraction. He loves to create and explore colors, transparency and movement in his works that are done in acrylic or mixed media.
