Denis Larouche AOCA

(Alumnus of the Ontario College of Art & Design)




Originally from Québec, Denis Larouche is well travelled, having explored Canada, the United States, France, Italy, Spain, Morocco, Ivory Coast, Mali, Burkina Faso, Togo, Ghana, and in the 1970's he lived in West Africa for a time.


Between his love for art and for science, he opted for the arts, Receiving a diploma in Applied Museum Studies from Algonquin College (Ottawa), then a diploma in Fine Arts from the Ontario College of Art & Design (Toronto).


His professional activities are twofold. His paintings have been shown in Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto, where he presented (as well as organized) both solo and group art exhibitions. 


Denis is also very active in the museum world, having doing contracts for major institutions such as the Canadian Museum of History, The Canadian Museum of Nature, The National Gallery of Canada, The Canadian Conservation Institute, the Ingenium Institution (Science & Technology Museum n Ottawa) and several Parks Canada sites. He has clients across Canada and in the United States.


As a painter, the concept of the Quantic Landscape has become a way of reconciling his passion for painting and physics.


He was awarded the *FALCO's Gilles-Gagné Award for Artistic Excellence at the 2012 Culturiades, as well as the Télé-Québec Award in 2011


His work was selected twice (2017 and 2021) for the Culture Outaouais Homage Award
