Mike Svob moved to BC from Welland, Ontario after graduating from the University of Western Ontario and gaining experience in the business world. Art was what everyone told him not to do.
His rendering of Mill Street In 1948 is an impressionistic wave of transparent colour which washes gently over the eye of the viewer much like his watercolours. He is a self-taught painter, who has gained recognition and now exhibits with other well-known members of the Federation of Canadian Artists. Svob has won numerous awards including first prize at the FCA ’85 Workshop and the Purchase Award at the 46th Northwest Watercolor Society Show.
