Metis Sash – Eric Ouimet

Growing up one of my favourite times of year was the Festival du Voyageur. Having a French Canadian / Métis background, this was a time to put on your ceinture fléchée (sash) and enjoy the week’s festivities. Each of the colours on the sash hold a specific meaning.

Eric Ouimet was raised on a farm near the small community of Ste-Agathe in southern Manitoba. No wonder the open sky and small town imagery is often reflected in his work. His silkscreen prints can be appreciated in private collections worldwide. Eric graduated from l’Université de Saint-Boniface in Communications and Multimedia (2001) and has since worked in television as an award winning motion graphics designer. He has created logos/branding for a number of western Canadian companies. Screen printing was a natural fit for the graphic artist, allowing him to combine his love of design with a hands on approach.  Living on acreage just outside the city of Winnipeg with his husband, Eric's home studio is surrounded by the very things that inspire his work.

Eric Ouimet est né sur une ferme près de Sainte-Agathe dans le sud du Manitoba. Il n’est pas étonnant, donc, de retrouver dans sa thématique les vastes ciels des plaines tout aussi bien que l’intimité des petits villages. Ses oeuvres sont appréciées internationalement et font partie de collection privée. Eric est diplômé (2001) de l’Université de Saint-Boniface en Communications et Multimédia et travaille depuis en télévision comme artiste graphiste réputé. Il a créé des logos et fait du branding pour plusieurs entreprises canadiennes. Le travail en sérigraphie lui est tout naturel, lui permettant de mettre les mains à la pâte tout en y joignant son goût pour le design. Eric a établi son studio sur plusieurs âcres de terrain à l’extérieur de Winnipeg où il habite avec son conjoint et où il est entouré des éléments qui inspirent ses oeuvres.
