the artist

In this digital age and era of virtual reality, artist Arcade Latour offers intriguing works of intense colour created through the use of the age-old medium that is printer’s ink. Latour discovered this medium and its potential while still a teenager. Fascinated by the intensity of this colours and the density of its texture, he made it his mission to explore and master its possibilities.

An accomplished graphic artist, Arcade Latour lays on canvass an entire universe of forms and colours that eventually gain a raised texture and relief. His paintings, initially perceived as a comprehensive and captivating ensemble, soon reveal projections and ledges that unveil fascinating details.

Printing Ink...

Arcade Latour probably fell into a cauldron of the stuff when he was a little boy. Indeed, it was among the discarded inks of a neighbourhood print shop that, as a youngster, he discovered a new, magical medium offering vibrant colours and thick, malleable textures. Thus, on cardboard brought back by his father from the menswear store where he worked, the young Arcade started experimenting with ink. He was at once fascinated by the wondrous forms and colours that his deft fingers were able to coax from this unexpected medium. From then on, ink was not to leave Arcade Latour’s existence.
Arcade Latour has worked all his life in creative endeavours. Graphic art, design and publishing successively ensured he was never far away the typical odour of fresh printing ink.

 

Looking for a reliable supplier for his unique paintings, Arcade Latour naturally gravitated toward Hostmann Steinberg. Known the world over for the quality of its products, Hostmann Steinberg is present around the globe.

Mindful of its environmental footprint, the Montreal plant has developed over the years an ink recycling program. It is from the ink yielded through this program that Mr. Latour finds the inks that he uses in his paintings.

 

 

 

A l’heure du numérique et du virtuel, l’artiste Arcade Latour nous offre une œuvre colorée et intrigante créée au moyen de cette matière ancestrale qu’est l’encre. Fasciné par l’intensité des couleurs et de la densité de la texture des encres d’imprimerie, Latour s’est donné pour mission d’en maîtriser l’application dès qu’il en as découvert les possibilités, a l’aube de son adolescence.

 

Dessinateur confirmé, Arcade Latour dépose sur la toile un univers de formes et de couleurs qui prennent du relief. D’abord perçues comme un ensemble complet et captivant, ses toiles révèlent vite une foison de saillies et de détails tout aussi fascinants.
