Feature Artist Bio
By permission of the artist, The Cyber Art Show is pleased to feature the first of two 12-piece exhibitions of works by contemporary
Canadian landscape painter Victor A. Roschkov (born 1962 in Ontario, Canada).
Encouraged by his artistically-talented parents, Victor Roschkov showed an early interest in drawing. He attended the art program at Danforth Collegiate in Toronto for three years and returned to London, Ontario to complete his 4th year in the art program at H.B. Secondary School.
He worked as a graphic artist in Edmonton, Alberta, and London, Ontario. During this time, Vic also created a small business producing professional ink and watercolour renderings of residential and commercial buildings for many private clients.
In the early 1990's, quite inspired by the work of such artists as A.J. Casson and Tom Thompson, he began experimenting in fine art and soon after began creating his own watercolour art. Self-taught in watercolour landscape painting, Vic strives to capture the subtle, beauty, charm and moods of primarily Southern Ontario. His paintings are completed in a unique representational style.
Over the past 17 years, Victor has exhibited and sold work in many large and respected annual group shows in London, Ontario and area, including The Lambeth Art Association; Port Stanley Artists Guild; St. Thomas Elgin Artists Guild; Art in The Heart; Art Mart; Art Focus and Visual Elements.
In the past four years Vic has had gallery representation at Davis Canadian Arts Gallery in Stratford, Ontario.
Victor's painting "Late Summer" was awarded Best in Show at the 2004 Lambeth Art Association annual exhibition.

Twelve Pieces by Contemporary Artist
Victor A. Roschkov (Born 1962)
“Many of my paintings arise from a simultaneous combination of emotional response and visual impact. I strive to translate my feelings and emotions into my landscape paintings. The subtle and challenging medium of watercolour best allows me express my vision of this area.
I love to paint in watercolour and create unique landscape art and I feel deep satisfaction when my viewers derive their own emotional response and pleasure from my art.”
