An artist from a family of hunters, woodsmen, and musicians of Pessamit, he has been living in Mani-Utenam for 20 years. In 2008, the death of a loved one who asked him to build a wooden easel made him question his vocation. In 2010, he traded the guitar for the brush and became a painter at the age of 45.
Gifted portraitist, Anatole explores the historical importance of indigenous personalities, often invisible in history books. Inspired by the photographs of Edward Curtis, his canvases filled with a certain romanticism were a great success with the public. His paintings exude great serenity and the characters live again before our eyes.
