Alexandre Hupe of the Eastern Townships (just South of Montreal) was trained as a glass blower and is a glass artist and builder. He found the repetitive nature of production glass blowing gruelling and decided it wasn’t for him. Alex is a glass creator, explorer and free thinker. He is also the acting President of GAAC - Glass Art Association in Canada. This role allows him to contribute to a wider community and helps remain connected to the fragile and exciting material that drew him in years ago.
Alexandre Hupé holds a college degree in glass art from Espace Verre, Montreal. Inspired by the relation in which humans are shaped by their environment, and fascinated by the optical qualities of light in glass, he uses blown, solid and sand casted glass to create complex sculptures and modular LED illuminate surfaces. He lives and work in Québec, Ontario and British Columbia.
