1 May 2018 Armand Vaillancourt, Compagnon des arts et des lettres du Québec
Sculptor, painter and printmaker, Armand Vaillancourt has explored the esthetic possibilities of multiple techniques and materials, extending the boundaries of each through his innovations and destroying conventions to build a monumental and militant set of works.

Marked by emotion, commitment and a high degree of formal liberty, his creations are tumultuous declarations of independence. Although often greeted with controversy, they have also won numerous honours, including the Paul-Émile-Borduas award.

Armand Vaillancourt was appointed to the Ordre des arts et des lettres du Québec at a special awards ceremony held on May 28, 2018.

The Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec would like to thank the Caisse de la Culture and Le Devoir, which partnered for the award of this honour.
