TONY SCHERMAN

View as Grid




Canadian artist Tony Scherman, born in Toronto in 1950, received an M.A. from the Royal College of Art in London, England, in 1974. Since then he has had his work in various corporate and public collections and has exhibited in solo and group exhibitions in both North America and Europe. He has also participated as a visiting critic and lecturer at universities, art colleges and art galleries in North America and Europe.

His encaustic method of painting combines pigment and wax to create works with multiple layers. The dripping and heavily built up wax surface gives the work a visceral edge and a remarkable sense of depth. Tony is considered the leading exponent of the encaustic medium.
