Taras Boychuk: Close-up in the Mountains

Taras Boychuk says he gets his inspiration from the mountains, where he finds subjects for his oil painting in stems of grass, stones, bushes, and tree trunks blasted by mountain storms. (Click images for more information)

  1. This artist is so powerful; he reminds me of wester Canadian artist Emily Carr and her magnificent pieces on totem poles and trees. Also, a bit of the works program artists during the American depression of the 20’s.


    • I agree 100 per cent, especially re Emily Carr (one of my favorites). The angular boldness and the colors definitely reference the depression era U.S. style. Very astute. Thank you for taking the time to leave those thoughts.
