Warren Oneschuk is an artist/painter in North Vancouver, BC working in acrylics. His subject matter lies in historical interests, tracing his roots back to the prairies where early-era vehicles and buildings surrounded his boyhood.
“My work is a study of the character of abandoned vintage vehicles and buildings that have been claimed by nature. In particular, I’m drawn to the beauty of neglected 1940s and 50s trucks, their sculptural shapes, rich rusted textures and the stories they tell. Using a bright palette, I begin a piece with a good idea of what I hope to achieve with the subject. Once the paint gets on the canvas, I begin reacting to what I have done. Responding intuitively helps me tell the subjects’ stories through my technique, injecting them with personalities and renewed life.”
Since 2011, Warren has had a number of co-exhibitions and group shows, and has completed commissioned work for private and corporate collectors. He has also given demos on his painting technique and provides private one-on-one lessons.
Warren is an Active Member of the Federation of Canadian Artists (FCA).
