Born in Chatillon-sur-Seine, France, in 1958, Correia now lives in Magog, Quebec.

French artist Jean-Michel Correia has been based in the Eastern Townships for many years. His academic career in architecture and fine arts led him to the plastic arts, a discipline he has practiced for 35 years. His works, both colorful and minimalist, have been exhibited in New York and Miami. Co-owner of the Magog Theater Gallery - Contemporary Art, Jean-Michel Correia also taught in the Design Department of the Faculty of Planning at the Université de Montréal and in the graduate program in Contemporary Art Practice at the Université de Sherbrooke . He is also a doctoral student in arts studies and practices at UQAM, curator and art critic. 

Highly informed about the history of art, Correia paintings are a clear continuation of the long tradition of Vitruvius, reminiscent of Modrian’s geometrical paintings and of Le Corbusier’s methodology. Correia strictly obeys the golden ratio as he applies paint, wood or cardboard to his canvas. Colours and textures are juxtaposed with subtle nuances. The result is ordered, balanced, rhythmic and poetically architectural.

Jean-Michel Correia’s work can be found in several private and public collections across Canada, France, Switzerland, Belgium, the United Kingdom and the United States.
