His soft lines that recreate landscapes from around the world provide a sense of nostalgia and opportunity for us to insert our own memories of the people and places they evoke. His characteristic color palette not only clearly identifies the work as a LaMonte Lamoureux, but furthers a personal relationship with the art by maintaining subtle hues and a soft lens into the worlds he creates on canvas. There remains a sense of kindness in his paintings that overlook sometimes stark details while portraying a recognizable overview of his subjects allowing their essence to remain at the forefront of our thoughts.
These pieces are created on canvas and cradled within characteristic wooden frames stretched and created by the artist himself, furthering the sense of personal connection between subjects and creator. Whether painting familiar vistas, flowers or cherished objects, these are the attributes that have made Lamonte Lamoureux an artist that people want to welcome into their homes and art aficionados instantly want to add to their collections.
LaMonte Lamoureux was born in Alaska, United States on January 6, 1977. The unique landscapes and environment surrounding him began a balance of appreciating beautiful views with the unique ecology and biological systems that exist below the surface. Lamoureux further combined these perspectives during his academic studies in the Biological Sciences with a minor in Fine Arts at Sierra Nevada College on a combined academic and athletic scholarship as an accomplished downhill ski racer. He also completed additional university level programs in Lake Tahoe, California; Seattle, Washington; Reno, Nevada; San Francisco, California and Queensland, Australia.
After having been chosen three years in a row to exhibit his work on banners along the iconic California US Route 101 by Arts Alive, Lamoureux was approached to install a large mural overlooking the Pacific Ocean at the Seaside Market complex in his home town. This led to his first exhibition at Fowler´s Boutique in 2019 during which his entire collection sold on its opening reception followed by many successful exhibitions since. He is also represented at the design centers of Molly Wood Design in Costa Mesa, California, Slate Interiors, Charlotte, North Carolina, Grounded Modern and Kyle & Grace in Encinitas, California. Lamoureux achieved national exposure with his work being featured on episodes of Help! I Wrecked My House, produced by HGTV and published in Nurture Parenting magazine and the book House Story by Jasmine Roth. Internationally, the art of LaMonte Lamoureux can be seen in Dando A Luz Birthing Centers, including the first natural birthing center in Thailand.
LaMonte Lamoureux currently lives in Cardiff by the Sea, California with his wife and two daughters where you can find him painting in his home based garage art studio or surfing the waves at nearby Cardiff Reef and Swamis.
