Born in 1958, René Donais is a Montreal artist printmaker fascinated with human and animal anatomy, enthralled with the bizarre. He studied art history and his first investigations in printmaking are of occidental paintings inspired by Japanese prints. After a two-years stay in China (1988-90), his creativity took the form of representations of flayed anatomy. He also became interested in human monstrosities, particularly hirsutism, and animal aberrations. René Donais is a self-taught engraver. He is a member of Atelier Circulaire since 1998.
