Cédric Loth
Caricature of Cédric Loth
by David Chavez
GUEST OF HONOR

CÉDRIC LOTH
Illustrator, cartoonist, sculptor
Exhibiting artist will be present

Cédric Loth was born in Canada in 1955. Cedric‘s sculptures embody a paradox : the story of life told by stopping time, the result encompasses all that came before and all that will follow-captured in a split second of eternity. We are somewhere between myth and reality, the heroic and the human. He also offers us a rare glimpse of the primordial battle of man against his own nature, a battle that is reflected in the dual fascination of the sea; the need to control it and the desire to return. Loth‘s work is evocative of both the florentine school and Rodin, yet its spirit is rooted in literature, notably Hemingway, Conrad and Melville. We can smell the salt, the rum and, above all, the freedom. The solidity of the detailed bases provides strong opposition to the suppleness and fludity of the bodies and poles. These contradictory forces melt, merge and then freeze on the edge of explosion. Loth has worked in visual arts for over 30 years and is well respected by his peers and the public for his incomparable graphic eye, technical mastery and his undeniable sense of humour. His caricatures have appeared in notable publications such as Time Magazine.

YGRECK (Yannick Lemay)
Editorial caricaturist 

Exhibiting artist will be present

In 1988, Yannick Lemay obtained a college diploma in Plastic Arts from the Cégep de Sainte-Foy. In the following years, he joined the world of fashion as a professional model, in Toronto and Montréal. He travels and he develops a keen interest in photography.

He returns to Québec in 1990. His professional life is then punctuated by cross-chasers, where his artistic impulses intermingle and oscillate between the world of the restoration and that of the fashion. In 1997, the birth of his son Alexis gives him the ambition and the courage to pursue seriously his artistic career. He offers his services to the media as a court croquist, with success. In 1999, He also became an independent cartoonist for Le Journal de Québec, where he produces « La semaine de Ygreck ». Thanks to the blog he creates in 2004, many people discover his talent and follow his daily work. This place of web exchanges allows him, among other things, to refine his style and develop colorful concepts. Starting in 2007, he comments on the news daily in Le Journal de Québec through the character of « Joe Bine ». Since 2009, he draws a cartoon a day for this same newspaper.

Over the last ten years, the artwork of Ygreck was highlighted and he was invited several times to speak about it in various media forums such as radio, television and the Internet, as well as in vocational training schools and workshops. In addition, some of his drawings were published on the front page of newspapers. Today, Ygreck feels more free to exercise and expose his art, his critical mind is refined and he is not afraid to say what he thinks.

YVES DEMERS
Caricatures live
Exhibiting artist will be present

A Montrealer by birth, Yves Demers quickly distinguished himself with a manual dexterity not commonly found. He very quickly became expert in different expressions of art, including drawing, sculpture, advertising illustration, cartooning, conception and realization of decors, and computer graphics. After over ten years doing corporate and editorial caricatures, he joined the creative team at Studio Artefact where he conceived and built Christmas decors for major shopping centers worldwide, from Florida to Hawaii. The art of caricature, however, continuously resurfaces in his life, justified by his pleasure of working with the public: “Drawing a face is akin to telling a story, and, for me, every face in the world is a beautiful story waiting to be told.” Yves was invited as the Guest of honor in the 2007 edition of the 1001 Visages.
