Lawya Art: Peintre Michel Sauvé

Love the rich and simple naivety inherent in these fun artworks and caricatures by Michel Sauve of Canada.

Picked out a few legal/justice themed pieces reflecting the two themes: law and hockey.

The Catch

Michel Sauve: A caricaturist or a naive painter, this is a question often answered. Michel Sauvé leaves no one indifferent. His art is sometimes incisive but never one feels the desire to hurt. Not wishing to harm anyone, Sauvé show us scenes of the daily legal and their actors. Lawyers and hockey players have plenty of room. On occasion, white ducks will be present, telling us that lawyers are not alone in the world. Nice nod to life.  Painting being a passion, he reveals another when he presents his characters with skates and hochey sticks. Since lawyers are often in delicate positions, he represents them as he feels them and gives them a court other than that of the courthouses in order to express themselves. C ‘ Is then skates with feet and sticks in the hand, they skate in order to defend well. Michel Sauvé has always loved to draw and have fun with color. Sauvé’s drawing is always the basis of his work and it is thus that he can easily integrate the architecture of the old quarters. Placed in old streets of Old Quebec, its lawyers stroll along the streets and sidewalks in the seasons and terraces they meet.

 

Check out Juridique for both law themed creations and pieces not law related.

The Great Commission

 

Sauvé is divided between his childhood and his maturity, it is probably the reason why he loves to take refuge in fantasy rather than wanting to take himself too seriously. He prefers to bring a smile to the lips of the collector rather than plunging it into deep reflection. Hockey has been and always is for him a passion. He likes to show us little players in alleys or schoolyards with equipment from another era. Dressed in the colors of the Nordiques or the Canadian, these characters remind us nostalgically of the rivalry that existed between these two Quebec teams.

Lawyers also have a very important place. Since lawyers are often in delicate positions, he represents them as he feels them and gives them a court other than that of the courthouses in order to express themselves. It is then that skates with feet and sticks in the hand, they skate in order to defend well. Michel Sauvé has always loved to draw and have fun with color. Sauvé’s drawing is always the basis of his work and thus he can integrate the architecture of the old quarters. Placed in old streets of Old Quebec, its lawyers stroll along the streets and sidewalks according to the seasons and the terraces they meet. More about Michel Sauve
