pete kohut

Pete Kohut is a self-taught artist currently enrolled part-time in the Visual Arts program at the University of Victoria. Over the years his drawings and paintings (oil on canvas) have moved through a series of stylistic and theoretical explorations without ever veering away from a distinctive, highly recognizable personal aesthetic that has been, perhaps, most deeply concerned with representation of the human form.

 

His work has been shown in Central and Southern Vancouver Island and on the mainland in Greater Vancouver. In 2016, Kohut was a sem-finalist in the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series in Vancouver, BC.

 

He currently lives and works in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada.
