Parent Richard - born July 2, 1958 Montreal. DIED August 5, 1993
He studied advertising graphics and several years later participated in the first steps of the Association of Illustrators of Quebec. Subsequently, he exiled himself to London for three years ( 1985 - 1988 ) where he collaborated on several publications and worked for several publishing houses. Following his return to Montreal, he worked closely with the McGill University Press, where he created more than forty cover pages. In 1990, B.A.T. magazine supported him by publishing an interview depicting him as one of the best 100 illustrators in the world. A return to London within the framework of a joint exhibition with Anita Kunzt at Canada House allowed him to start a personal project consisting of a series of pencil portraits, as well as to work on his magazine Noir Express. The latter was intended to serve as a bridge between illustration and the new literature by offering artists a place to express themselves and to confront each other. Illness claimed him on August 5, 1993, before he could fulfil this dream. Through his work, it is possible to perceive the seriousness of his vision, his lucid manner of seeing man, and man's relationship with others, and to portray the absurd. His entire work is marked by his incredible ability to make the chimera emerge from each anecdote, the fantastic from ordinary things. [SOURCE - AIIQ]
