Yvon Gallant is a leading Acadian artist, rooted and thriving in his community. He was born in 1950 in Moncton, New Brunswick, where he continues to live and work. He is part of the first generation of artists who received their Fine Arts training at the Universite de Moncton.

His work is based on the reality of everyday life, and speaks of the people around him and those who he encounters on a regular basis. He received the Miller Brittain Award in 1992 and has had his work featured in over 80 exhibitions.
