Andrew Valko

Andrew Valko (b. 1957, Prague, Czechoslovakia) is a well-known Canadian Realist whose paintings explore the psychological tension caused by observation. Layered with open-ended ambiguity, his compositions subtly weave narratives that imply that there is much more than meets the eye. The works are set in neon-lit motels, drive-in theatres and parking lots; it is in these transient locations that Valko captures intense moments that tell an unfinished story.

Andrew Valko graduated with an arts degree from Red River Community College in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and he studied printmaking with Toshi Yoshida in Japan. He has participated in many group shows throughout North America and internationally, including at the Art Gallery of Calgary, Calgary, Alberta; Deluth Art Center, Deluth, Minnesota; National Art Center, Ottawa, Ontario; Duxbury Art Museum, Boston, Massachusetts; Danforth Museum of Art, Massachusetts; Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taipan, Taiwan, and Le Musée de Arts Modestes, Sete, France.
