YOU FIRST – Eric Ouimet

By Eric Ouimet
2021 Silkscreen
18 x 30 in

Having grown up on a farm, I’ve climbed my fair share of bale stacks. In some cases, they were also used as giant lego blocks for the ultimate fort.  On top of their actual purpose, they provide hours of fun for kids all over.  Often the only thing on the horizon for miles, they’re a signature of the prairie landscape.

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.
