Yves Laran

Yves Laran is a French painter from Perpignan, France. Before calling St. Jacobs Ontario his home, Yves travelled internationally for many years, developing his own personal style. After studying sculpture in Italy for one year, Laran began skillfully blending figurative and abstracted works together, often translating forms of sculpture into intense colour and movement.

After painting for over 40 years, Laran has gained international visibility, exhibiting in private collections across the world. Recognized for his distinct style, Laran’s works are an oscillation between form and meaning, rhythm and static. Using vibrant oils on canvas, Laran seeks to render sensation as visible through his mastery of the language of colour.
