Charles Sucsan was born in Paris in 1932 to Hungarian parents. The artist studied ceramics and sculpture in Paris, apprenticing at the studio of Florencio Fernandez, a master ceramist and close friend to Pablo Picasso. Sucsan studied drawing and painting at Lâ€™Ecole Municipal de Paris from 1951-1952. In 1958 the artist opened his own studio and produced several award-winning decorative objects. Charles Sucsan is a multi-disciplinary artist, working across mediums; producing paintings, ceramics, murals and sculpture. He immigrated to Canada in 1960. From 1960 to 1975 Sucsan received a number of commissions to create several large public and private murals in Montreal and Quebec. Charles Sucsan translates his unique vision of the world on to the canvas using a hybrid of graffiti-style painting where figures dance along the surface with exuberance, expressions ripe with colour, a world created by the artist that is both poetic and beautiful.
