Artist of the Week: Wieslaw Repnicki

Polish-born artist copied techniques of European masters

Since a young age, Wes Repnicki has shown a natural ability in art.

As a teen, he studied with his father’s friend, an art professor, and grew to admire the architecture around the old part of Gdansk, where he lived.

He continued his education at the Gdansk Art Academy but it was a conservator who taught Repnicki about the works of European masters.

Repnicki travelled around Europe, living in Germany and Italy, until 1989 when he settled in Canada and later joined the Polish Association of Artists.

Until March 21, his piece Race can be seen at Port Moody city hall as part of the 6th annual Polish Canadian Art Fusion Exhibition, which officially opens Sunday at 2 p.m. featuring the works of 24 artists including Agata Teodorowicz, a Port Moody Arts Centre faculty member.
