Richard Morin begins his career as an artistic painter in the early 1990’s. A first degree in arts and media followed by another in scenography at the National Theatre School of Canada (1988), he did several internships in Paris where he also takes courses at the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts. Back in Montreal, he collaborates in three Cirque du Soleil productions and works as a designer for a couple of notable plays produced at the Théâtre de l’Oeil. The theatre world rewards him with several prizes (Masques’s prize, Chalmers’s prize) for the quality and originality of his décor. After many years behind the stage, he now spends most of his time painting. He also exposes in Ottawa, Toronto and New York. Richard produces his first mural with MU in 2011 for the National Theatre School’s 50th anniversary, Les conteurs (The Storytellers).
