"I would like to be an architect, sculptor and painter all at once"; declared an ambitious Joseph Giunta to a journalist from a Quebec newspaper in 1965. Joseph Giunta, a Canadian Italian artist painter of Sicilian origin, was born in Montreal Canada in 1911. He studied at the Monument National, the Montreal School of Fine Arts, and at the art school of Edmond Dionnet. Giunta also studied abroad in such places as Boston, France and Italy.

J.Giunta was influenced successively by the great masters of the contemporary art period, by the impressionists and the Fauves, especially Paul Cézanne and Henri Matisse. In 1936, flanked by Marc-Aurèle Fortin, he presented his still life, street scene, floral art oil paintings and drawings at the Fine Arts Department of Maison Eaton. For a period that spanned over 30 years, between 1931 and 1963, his works were on exhibition at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts' Salon Printemps (Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal), and the Canadian Hall of Fine Arts in Montreal , as well, the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec purchased 8 original art oil paintings, which where landscape paintings of the Laurentians and areas around Montréal, and Québec.


Beginning in 1958 Giunta turned toward abstract art, abstract expressionism, mixed media collage/assemblage art and finally to sculpture type montage 3D artwork. He was influenced by artists such as Paul Klee, Tapies, Kandinski, Picasso, Salvador Dali, Kurt Schwitters, Marcel Duchamp, and Jackson Pollock.

In 1970, Giunta accepted a special invitation by the Government of Quebec to show paintings at the World's Fair in Osaka Japan, while simultaneously, the Zannetin Gallery circulated Gunta's collage work throughout his native province in Canada. Five years later the sudden death of his only son served as the catalyst for a long series of powerful and passionate sculpture type montage 3D artwork in which Giunta attempted to reconstruct his world.

During the 90s, he showed collages and constructions at the Vieux Presbytère de Saint-Bruno, the Gallery of the Alliance Française in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, and, finally, the Vieux-Palais in Saint-Jérôme, among original fine art works by Ayotte, Beaulieu, Cosgrove, Fortin and Lyman.

Giunta died in January 2001, just as he was preparing for a major exhibition at the Maison de la culture Frontenac in Montreal, Quebec-an event that sparked the interest of the artistic milieu and fostered the discovery of this little-appreciated collage / assemblage & construction 3D art work.


Filmmaker Pepita Ferrari paid Giunta a fitting tribute, vibrantly portraying the artist's life through his fascinating art career and striking artwork. A moving portrait documentary art film that has won 5 awards in 3 countries: Canada, United States and France. Find out why !" ...feel the power and the passion of the human spirit ." GRIFFIN, John The Gazette, Montrea, 24 November 2001.
The film was a finalist for the Best Arts Documentary, Gemini Awards, Canada, 2003, and a finalist at the Medimedia awards (Alzheimer's Category: International Health & Medical Media Awards) Medimedia Freddie Awards, USA (2002). The following television stations have also acquired the rights to the film: BRAVO! CANADA; CBC RADIO-CANADA; Canadian Learning Television, CLT Edmonton, Alberta, CLT Toronto, Ontario; Knowledge Network, British Columbia's Public Educational Broadcaster; TV ONTARIO, Toronto, Ontario; Télé-Québec, Montréal, Québec; SCN, Regina, Saskatchewan.


"L'artiste veut transcender le monde qui l'entoure, en imprégner son esprit et parfois, comme cela demande du temps, il doit envisager de vivre très longtemps".

Joseph Giunta naît à Montréal, Canada en 1911. Il étudie au Monument National, à l' école des Beaux-Arts de Montréal, au « Copley Society » à Boston, puis à l'atelier d'Edmond Dyonnet. En 1936, aux côtés de Marc-Aurèle Fortin, il présente ses œuvres d'art (paysages, peintures à l'huile sur toile et dessins originaux) au Fine arts département de la Maison Eaton. Entre 1931 et 1963, il expose au Salon du Printemps du Musée des Beaux-Arts de Montréal. En 1955, un voyage d'études en France et en Italie raffermie la détermination de l'artiste qui participe alors à un grand nombre de manifestations artistiques. En 1970, Giunta est invité au Pavillon du Québec de l'exposition universelle d'Osaka alors que simultanément, la galerie d'art Zannetin fait circuler ses tableaux abstraits au Québec.

En 1975, le décès prématuré d'Enzo, son fils unique, devient le catalyseur d'une longue série d' œuvres percutantes. Dévasté, Giunta se réapproprie les objets de son quotidien afin d'exorciser sa souffrance et que de leur assemblage / collage / montage émerge un monde qui lui serait plus tolérable...

Giunta s'est éteint en janvier 2001, période durant laquelle il préparait une exposition majeure à la Maison de la culture Frontenac à Montréal événement suscita l'intérêt du milieu des arts et permit la découverte de ce travail méconnu. Via un autre médium de diffusion, le film de la cinéaste Pepita Ferrari Joseph Giunta: un triomphe silencieux, relate avec brio la vie de l'artiste à travers son saisissant parcours et son œuvre marquant.


Ce film est un portrait magnifique, sobre et très touchant de cet artiste hélas encore largement méconnu. "Plus qu'un film sur la peinture: une ode sereine a la jeunesse de coeur." --Denis Coté, Ici.

Découvrez pour vous même pourquoi ce film canadien a remporté 5 prix dans 3 pays différents; la France, le Canada, et les États-Unis.

Les stations de télévisions suivantes ont acquisent les droits pour télédifuser le film. BRAVO!

Dans une ambitieuse déclaration faite à un journaliste du Québec Chronicle Telegraph, Joseph Giunta déclara qu'il «aimerait être à la fois architecte, sculpteur et peintre».
Ce rêve fut réalisé avec les constructions baroques géométriques 3D, créations intrigantes et uniques de l'artiste.

Ce site et un portrait de cet artiste peintre contemporain montréalais d'origine italienne. En plus de la peinture d'art moderne, il travailla les montages, les collages, les assemblages et les constructions sculptures 3D.
