Contemporary abstract paintings
by Marta Baricsa
Founder of Directivism in art
I was born in London, England and I moved to Canada at an early age. While living in Toronto I attended a special 4 year arts program at Central Technical School. Realizing that painting was my main interest I later attended and graduated from the Experimental Arts Department at the Ontario College of Art. OCAD. I moved from Toronto fifteen years ago to Vancouver, British Columbia Canada. I live and work in my studio in the east side with my partner Roy Mackey who is a steel sculptor.
Over the years I had the privilege of studying with Graham Coughtry, Daniel Solomon, Gustav Weisman, Ed Bartram and John Meredith.
I have shown my work in galleries in Toronto, Vancouver, Victoria, San Francisco, New York and Los Angeles. My paintings can be seen at the Vancouver Art Gallery's art rental and sales and during studio visits.
My paintings are in private and corporate collections in Canada, U.S.A and Great Britain and are featured in over thirty movies and TV productions.
