René Lemay (1934-2015), a self-taught contemporary realist painter, expresses joy and the here and now through various media. For over 25 years, his creative journey has guided him between Asia and the Îles-de-la-Madeleine, where his workshop is open to public during summer : 1610 Chemin de l'Étang des caps.

His art has been featured in many national and international exhibitions.
