Driven by adventure and inspired by nature, Ric Fedyna creates art that is informed by his experiences in the wild. He spends his time in the wild patiently observing the patterns of nature and the movement of animals. All this inspiration comes to life on canvas in his studio, as he tells the stories of his adventures, the land, and its majestic creatures. He describes his work as realism with a painterly abstract feel, or in other words; perfectly imperfect.
Rick earned a degree in Visual Communication and began his career as an illustrator and art director. Fast forward over 30 years, Ric has art and creative directed hundreds of campaigns for most of the top advertisers in Canada. He won dozens of regional, national, and international awards for his work. Throughout his career in advertising, he never let go of painting and his quest for adventure. It is what feeds his soul.
