Another amazing artist who will be at the Artists in Action Day -
RICHARD KLEKOCIUK MPAS (Can)
I am based in Launceston and have been a practising artist for 38 years. Coloured pencil is my preferred medium. I have won numerous awards, often in open company and have been a Glover finalist twice. In August last year, I was awarded Master Pencil Artist Status by the Canadian Pencil Society, and I’m one of only 3 artists in Australia with this acknowledgement. I am ranked in the top 200 coloured pencil artists world-wide.
My work is inspired by the Tasmanian landscape. Realism, Surrealism, Symbolism, abstraction, social commentary, mark making, weathering, decay, pattern and shape are of particular interest to me.
