Born June 10, 1933 in Saint-Michel-de-Wentworth near Lachute, Tex Lecor studied at the École des beaux-arts de Montréal from 1951 to 1958, with other artists who will become famous, such as the sculptor Armand Vaillancourt.
After more than 20 years of working his way as a singer and host, from 1978 Lecor devoted himself to his great passion of painting. He also becomes a bush pilot and a great traveler who travels all over the country to create his colorful works that are popular with collectors.
In keeping with the landscape tradition, his figurative pictorial work is inspired by those of Marc-Aurèle Fortin, Clarence Gagnon and the painters of the Group of Seven. An irreducible defender of nature, his work is strongly imbued with nostalgia and his numerous trips to northern regions often inspire his paintings.
