About the Event
Born in Lac Saint-Jean, Quebec, Canada in 1963, Joël A. Prévost spent a few years on Vancouver Island before moving to Nova Scotia to study Community Development. He continued his education and worked in Ottawa before returning to western Canada in the mid-80s.
Joël spent the next twenty years in British Columbia where he worked as a facilitator with non-profit organizations in planning and fundraising. This experience led him to become a promoter in music, the theatre and visual arts, as well as taking on the role as a producer for concerts, music series and cultural events. During this time he also learned how sculpt.
In 2006 Joël settled in Montréal where he established L’Atelier de Sculpture du Village. There he taught sculpture to students whose backgrounds encompassed related art fields such as cinema, the circus, 3D animation and video games. He also instructed visual artists seeking to perfect their skills in rendering the human form.
Joël has recently relocated from Montréal and established the Vancouver Island Sculpting Studio, in British Columbia, a professional clay and plasticine sculpting studio. With 25 years’ experience as a sculptor, he currently teaches sculpting using life models, to students at all levels.
His works can be found in numerous private and corporate collections in Canada, the United States, France, Italy, Switzerland, New Zealand, Australia and China.
