Allan Myndzak

Allan Myndzak, born in 1954 in Vernon, British Columbia, began private art lessons at 8 years of age under the late Jessie Topham Brown and continued until he was 16 years old.

Upon high school graduation, he received the Helen Pitt Scholarship and continued his art studies at the Alberta College of Art in Calgary from 1972 - 1976. He had his first one-man show at Jessie Topham Art Gallery in Vernon at the age of 18.

From 1976 to 1982, Myndzak participated in group and Juried shows in both Edmonton and Calgary. Myndzak has painted in Alberta, Southern Ontario, Vancouver Island and throughout British Columbia.

In 1985, Myndzak moved to Victoria to continue landscape painting and to study classical piano. At this time, he began a series in large oil canvases of ponds and fields.

In 1987, Myndzak moved to Vancouver where he continued painting his landscape and pond themes on a full-time basis.

His paintings exhibit a strong sense of composition, light and depth that parallel many of the painters of the late 19th Century. A large, varied palette ranging from subtle hues to vibrant primaries also aids the artist in achieving his desired effects. His unique, personal ability of creating emotional and atmospheric representations of his subject matter is admired by connoisseurs and laymen alike.

During his many years of painting, Myndzak continues to deal with a variety of themes and painting techniques. As result of his commitment and openness to experimentation, his work continues to grow and develop.

The oil paintings of Allan Myndzak have been collected by both private and corporate clients throughout Canada and the United States.
