Welcoming New Artist Ryan Sobkovich!

West End Gallery is pleased to welcome Ontario based artist Ryan Sobkovich to the West Coast! An accomplished artist from a young age, Ryan started painting at age nine and was exhibiting and selling his work in a local gallery by the time he was sixteen.

Ryan's love of nature inspires him to paint wilderness scenes of Canada while hiking, camping and kayaking around the great lakes and other areas across the country. He utilizes dynamic, impasto brushwork and layed complementary colours to convey emotions, feelings and thoughts while on site in the wilderness. Ryan's paintings are collected by private, corporate and public collectors nationally and internationally.
