Holding a B.A. in Communication Studies from Concordia University (Montreal), Dubeau now works in the public relations and marketing field.

By combining the traditional with modern techniques, he is able to bridge authenticity with simplicity in a truly unique and original way.
Less is More
Known for being extremely imaginative and original, Dubeau espouses a “less is more” ethos. His work explores the many facets of feminine eroticism with equal parts of emotion and whimsy which creates a delightful paradox. He uses traditional techniques with the most modern of digital tools and explore the most basic form of expression — black lines on a white background. A majority of his artworks are composed from an in-the-moment mindset and thought process. This artistic exploration allows Dubeau to demonstrate his unique and elemental style. Each line and shadow presented is thoughtfully crafted to create a unique free-flowing masterpiece that possesses exceptional depth and movement. “It can take me many hours to perfect just one line”, says Dubeau.
With no preconceived notions of an outcome, Dubeau uses a digital stylus and a blank virtual canvas as the tools to create erotic masterpieces. Utilizing the traditional techniques of an engraver, illustrator and painter, François’ begins the creative process with swift random gestures as a starting point. One single line then translates into hours of work as each stroke is forever repeated, but never twice, until he is completely satisfied with the end result.
Francois Dubeau personally produces each of his prints using only the finest museum quality materials and archival inks. Once a drawing is complete, it is transferred either onto paper or canvas. For his 8 x10 prints, Dubeau uses acid-free paper and high-quality ink while the limited edition canvas prints are stretched on a 1 ½” deep gallery frame. Each canvas print, in the collection, is signed and numbered by and also comes with a certificate of authenticity.
