Arte (Dats Italian)

July 9 – 20, 1985

About the Program

Avrom was born in Vancouver in 1952, a descendent of the Tolstoys of Russia. This is evident in his art. His narrative, descriptive style, and a fine eye for detail are a feature in this work. Although Avrom has completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, he doesn't hold much faith in art schools: "The primitives didn't go" is his usual reply. His work is bright, colourful, and vibrant. His use of line and colour is rigorous yet sedentary. His refined aesthetic contradicts his raw primitive style. His parody of the fashion world is both scathing and loving at once. A damnation and glorification in the same work.
