Martin Beaupré and the Zenga Technique…

On the week-end of the 16th and the 17th of May, Martin Beaupré, an artist from Quebec City, will be painting live in front of all those who will be present at the Beauchamp Contemporary Art gallery located at 69,rue St-Pierre and 28, rue du Sault-au-Matelot.

Martin Beaupré is famous for his exotic paintings that reflect the Asian spirit; may they be divine Gheishas, serene Buddhas, or mesmerizing Asian landscapes. He is also known for his eccentric and spiritual painting technique.

Before beginning a painting, Martin Beaupré enters a state of consciousness which resembles that of ‘meditation’. He performs certain Tai-Chi movements that put him into a trance of receptiveness. He also rids his mind of any negative thought. He then dips his paintbrush in black ink and in one single graceful gesture, he creates a bold, black swirl on the canvas before him.

The black ‘line’ which has been drawn instinctively, then becomes the focal point that triggers a painting. Beaupré carefully contemplates the bold line, referred to as the ‘Zenga technique’ which actually dates back to the old Buddhist monks, and lets himself be impregnated by it.

Moreover, Beaupré sometimes has to put the canvas away for a couple of days, in order to let his mind be enraptured by the mysterious rough draft he has been guided to draw. Always in unison with his intuition, when the bold line finally ‘speaks’ to him, when it provokes a clear finished image in his mind, he then lets all the positive energy that inhabits him guide him to create one of his many masterpieces.

It is certainly a great privilege to see Martin Beaupré while he is painting. His unusual technique and his immense spiritual nature are a blessing for the eyes.
