About

Serge Dumont is a native of Trois-Rivieres.

His interest and close relationship with motorsports is probably due to his witnessing as child the exploits of Gilles Villeneuve in the Formula Alantic and Can-Am series in the Trois-Rivieres Grand Prix. This fact goes a long way to explain why he has become such a staunch supporter of motorsports. Over the years, he staged several major exhibitions and live painting session in many countries in the world including Monaco and Abu Dhabi. He specializes in various automotive racing art, more specifically on subjects from the world of Formula 1 and Moto Gp. Initially, art and racing have nothing in common... But once passed the finish line, the racers and their machines can be a source of inspiration for many internationally-renowned artists. For him, personally, they are unquestionably.. Early in his career, he painted his subjects in oil and acrylic, but with the discovery of computerized tools in the mid 90s, in the 2000s, a further step is taken towards a fully computerized painting allowing an almost infinite number of degrees of freedom of both colors. The realism of the transition gives way to expression and perfection of his movements. He captures the intensity of his subject so perfectly that you can almost smell the heat and feel the movement of the cars. From his imagination, he gives you a perspective that takes your breath away. His compositions seem to capture the unique personality of each team. When you go over the numerical details of his art, you will quickly understand that digital painting competes easily with real originals. His interpretation of color also presents a dynamic state of mind. The tones often range from darkest to lightest in an effort to capture the highest detail level of his subjects. This creative combination of "information" on so many levels is spontaneous and intuitive.
