Marc Séguin was born in Ottawa on March 20, 1970. He obtained his Bachelor of Fine Arts at Concordia University and now splits his time between his home in Montréal, Québec and his Brooklyn, New York studio. Touching on themes of the politically backwards, the environmentally compromised and the socially divided, his work reveals deeper truths about the nature of humanity through images that are not only thought provoking, but beautifully elegiac.
Since 2000, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts and the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec have all acquired major works by Marc Séguin. His prints and paintings can be found in numerous Canadian corporate collections and those of major private Canadian and American collectors. To date, Marc Séguin has held more than 20 solo shows and participated in many more group exhibitions and art fairs around the world, including Madrid, Barcelona, Venice, Berlin, Cologne, New York, Miami, Chicago, Brussels and Namur.
Marc Séguin has also published 5 critically acclaimed fiction novels – La foi du braconnier, Hollywood, Nord Alice, Les Repentirs et Jenny Sauro – translated in English and German. Stealing Alice is his first feature film. His documentary The State of the Farm was released in September 2017.
