“To draw outdoors, I had built a makeshift workshop under a tent, in the backyard of our home, where I hung a light bulb. Then the rain started pouring. When I touched the light bulb, I was instantly electrified; a formidable jolt of art, come to think of it!”
– Jean Paul Riopelle | First artistic memories, 1931
Riopelle had big dreams for the foundation he imagined, that of uniting a diversity of people from all walks of life, dreamers and risk-takers, converging toward a common objective: innovation and creation without boundaries. Help us achieve Riopelle’s dream to bring people together through art.
