Trained as an architect, self-taught as a painter, John Ovcacik creates timeless images that defy categorization. Between the real and the surreal, impression and portrait, landscape and dreamscape, his subjects are reconstructions - remembered, imagined, designed.
A two-time recipient of the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Award for representational art, John has had his work accepted into major juried shows, including those of the Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolour, Arts for the Parks, and the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition. His award-winning paintings are represented in numerous private and corporate collections.
John currently paints full-time in his home studio in Chelsea, Quebec, just north of Ottawa. John’s work is available at Terence Robert Gallery and Koyman Galleries in Ottawa, Ontario.
