    Pierre Ostiguy developed his style through a combination of teaching himself to paint and attending classes after graduating from the Cégep of Granby Haute-Yamaska in 1971.

    “Art was his refuge,” his psychologist Sandra Villeneuve says, “his only pleasure. Art gave him a social status. A role more brilliant than that of a sick person. It was his hope for the future, his engine to continue.”

    Pierre’s art reflects his mental states and the turbulence he lived through in his life. Sadly, growing illness forced him to withdraw from the artistic community. Between 2007 and 2009, Pierre stayed in contact with Les Impatients while in isolation, writing over 400 letters to the organization.

    He passed away in September 2009 of lung disease. After his death, his works were incorporated into Les Impatients’ collection by Dr. André Delorme. The gallery of Les Impatients and Boréart, Granby, organized a posthumous exhibition of his artwork in 2011.
