Langevin, RogerRoger Langevin holds a Diploma of Advanced Studies in Arts and Literature from the Université d’Aix (France). A professional artist for the last forty years, his sculptures are displayed in many galleries and in public places all over Quebec and abroad (France, England, Mexico, Ivory Coast, and Egypt). Locally, he is best known for his monumental sculptures, the first of which being the "Monument au draveur" (Monument to a Logger) in Mont-Laurier, followed in Montreal by the statue of Félix Leclerc at the Lafontaine Park and the "Monument aux travailleurs" (Monument to Workers) in front of the CSN building. For now, his best-known work remains the "Monument aux pêcheurs" (Monument to Fishermen) erected in 1990 at Îles-de-la-Madeleine. Since then, having taken up residence in Rimouski, Langevin has produced most of his many monumental works there, including his "Monument aux bâtisseurs" (Monument to Builders) to mark the tercentenary of the city in 1996. At the turn of the year 2000, thanks to a grant from the Federal Government, Langevin designed an original monumental concrete work called "Trimural", which he created alongside more than a hundred volunteers in Rimouski, using devices of his own invention (see: trimural.com).
