Mark Thibeault received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Visual Arts from the University of Windsor in 1992.
A deep understanding of line, rhythm, and space can be found in his paintings.
Inspired by abstract expressionists, Thibeault often refers to objects and surroundings for lines and shapes to start a piece. Ideas may come together quickly but are often painted over in favor of a composition that will insist it is complete and better than it was. Whether the completed work finds itself early or after multiple edits, each has great depth and space and is rich with varied marks, layers of collage, acrylic and oil paint. The mood of each piece is governed by the previous line’s influence and affect.
In September 2019, Thibeault was the successful finalist for the inaugural Artist in Residence program at the Cassiar Cannery near Prince Rupert, British Columbia Canada.
That experience resulted in a solo show at the Museum of Northern British Columbia in February 2020. "Cycles" is a collection of abstract and expressive paintings inspired by north coastal BC.
Mark Thibeault currently resides and works from his home studio in Telkwa, British Columbia Canada and is preparing for more shows into 2021.
