Armand Vaillancourt is best known as one of the towering figures in modern sculpture in Canada. He has created some 3,000 small-scale and monumental sculptures, including the famous fountain sculpture in Embarcadero Plaza in San Francisco. In 1993, he received the Prix Paul-Émile-Borduas. In addition to his sculptural projects, Vaillancourt is a Canadian pioneer in the field of art actions and performance maneuvers, creating various happenings in urban and rural environments since 1953.
