Fernand Toupin
(1930 - 2009) Les Plasticiens, RCA

Fernand Toupin was born in Montreal, Quebec in 1930. He began taking night classes at the Ecole de Beaux-Arts in Montreal in 1949. Toupins early style, as part of the Plasticiens group, was comprised of coloured geometric forms on irregular canvases. Later, in the 50s and 60s, his work evolved to include texture. The last decade of his career saw him return to geometric abstraction.
During his successful career, Toupin participated in numerous individual and group exhibitions in Canada, the United States, and France. He was elected a member of the RCA in 1977.
