Best Canadian Artists




Ivan is a Canadian artist who for many years painted the Canadian landscape in 'Group of Seven' inspired oils. A love of France and her Mediterranean neighbours has in the past decade, turned his palette to vivid acrylics, better enabling him to capture and record his passion for Provencal and Tuscan villages.  For the past seventeen years Ivan has marketed his work at over 400 exhibitions and shows across Canada and the US.  His paintings can be found currently worldwide in private and corporate collections.
A long time interest in leather as a hobby, recently inspired Ivan to start experimenting with jewelry for men.  Hence the birth of "Stone and Hide", unique creations designed and crafted by the artist.  After only a few short months, these works are being sought after by various hip boutiques and shows seeking quality Canadian crafted goods.
