This Month's Featured Artist Stefan Galvanek
Stefan studied sculpture at the School of Applied Art and Design in Europe where he worked in clay and stone. After moving to Toronto 1968, he continued his education in the Con. Ed. dep. at Ontario College of Art.
In the 1960s Stefan worked with charcoal and egg tempera, depicting imaginative figures and portraits. After moving to Toronto, his work became more experimental in nature. In the early 1970s his work distorted the body to anamorphic images, developing a sense of mobility. In the late 1970s he started his "Suitcase" series, placing the human form into a defined space. In his most recent work he is placing figures against the landscape with the figures absorbed in rituals, forming beliefs and giving thanks.
