The Bill Boyko Show - In the Papermill Gallery - Opens Sept. 21

September 21 to October 2, 2016
After graduating from the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto, Bill embarked on a very successful commercial illustration and design career. In his personal work he uses inventive,  intriguing and vibrant juxtapositions of materials and colour to express his unique vision. Often he uses canvas, linen, wood, metal and other fabrics to bring texture and meaning to the subject, overlaid with layers of mediums – acrylic, chalk, paint – that create movement and depth. Beautiful subtle application of colour depth is a signature.  Versatile and always contemporary, joyful and large in scale, Bill’s work is found in private collections across Canada and the U.S.
