Portrait Painting Vancouver Mat Holmstrom Art
Self Portrait | Metallic Acrylic on Panel | 5ft x 4ft



Dedicated to an ever-expanding creative world of work on paper, panel, canvas, ceramics and sculpture, Holmstrom has actively sought to create a diverse collection of imagery that embraces the spirit of French and Canadian art canons.

A consistent practice for the artist is to embrace, draw and paint the natural splendor of Vancouver while exploring notions of beauty, space and growth. These experiences and reflections inspire the artists’ dynamic shapes, colors, and compositions.

Metallic paint integrated with a rich color palette and a relief masking technique stimulates a unique and mesmerizing viewing experience for audiences of all ages. The intensity of the metallic paint is altered throughout the day as the lighting of the environment transitions, creating an ever-changing work of art that lends to the artists’ embracement of reflectivity and metamorphosis.

Holmstrom studied at the Alberta College of Art & Design and MacEwan University. His work can be found in private collections across Canada.
