Virtual Demo Evenings 


Still Life – Floral painting

Virtual Demo Evening
Monday, June 7 – 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

One flower garden was a special place to escape into endless hours of drawing in my youth. When I started to paint, I was drawn to a small town scenery and figurative. Only after my seven years of instructing Colour Theory, I returned to the stimulating vibrancy of flowers.
Their bold and graceful shapes are very personal to me. They reveal their fascinating radiance when seen in an eclectic and semi-abstract way.
 

Born and raised in Europe, Vladan made Toronto home in 1993.
Vlad has been painting Fine Art, portraiture, murals, animation backgrounds, and comics.
He had numerous solo shows in Toronto, Calgary, York (UK), Columbia (SC), and Palm Beach Gardens (FL).
Since 2009 he has also instructed in Painting, Colour Theory, Perspective, and Photoshop.
