François Mathieu conducts his experiments in sculpture but also through writing and photography. He is interested in the architecture of forms and the ways in which they are put into matter. If he gives himself a mission while working, it is to take the necessary detours to get lost along the way and surprise himself. Holder of a bachelor's degree in philosophy, another in visual arts and a master's degree in Quebec studies, François Mathieu has devoted himself to creation for thirty years. Having to his credit several public art achievements in all kinds of environments, he has also presented numerous exhibitions in Canada, Mexico and Belgium. Originally from St-Éphrem in Beauce, François Mathieu lives and works in a rural area, in St-Sylvestre de Lotbinière.
