A seawall beckons with the familiar. Yet a point-of-view you've never seen before. See the city come to life in richness and tone. The magic of the West Coast - through the prismatic touch of Michael Mancuso. Mancuso, of Italian heritage, was raised in Northern Ontario where he began do draw at an early age. A graduate of the Ontario College of Art, he was handpicked to attend a campus in Florence where he received the national Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation award and the Professional Art Dealers of Canada Scholarship Awards. Schooled in the classic/realist tradition in human figures, Mancuso's move to Vancouver in 1985 brought new scope, influence and energy to his work.
What once was familiar is now transformed. With always the primitive lurking, his work is now smaller and more controlled with emphasis on the West Coast landscape and the natural.
