Since the start of the 1980’s, Deny made himself known in Quebec and other Canadian provinces through his own Television show where he divulged the secrets of his talents.
During the past 40 years, Deny Cloutier developed impressive techniques allowing him to paint realistic landscapes with an unbelievable beauty. With each brush stroke (some of them 2 to 3 inches in width) appear mountains, trees, plants, a calm lake or turbulent river with a beautiful blue sky. Depending on his inspiration, he can add clouds, rain or whiten the landscape with snow. Plants appear here and there, around buildings or rocks. A boat might be tied at the dock. Birds might appear flying over the landscapes.
In an astonishing manner, every canvas has its own identity. Deny explains that as a poet uses a great volume of words to express his sentiments or theme, he similarly plays with an inexhaustible amount of colors offered to his own imagination. Deny sees a great source of inspiration in what nature has to offer.
In the past 40 years, Deny has mastered his own painting techniques. He fascinates numerous people who can watch him paint for hours. He is able to paint several hundred different landscapes without needing a model.
Deny has worked very hard since his adolescence to master his work habits and achieve such success. He has painted over 40,000 paintings to date and he is not finished. He is therefore the most productive painter in the world.
