Mike Svob

Mike Svob is celebrating his thirtieth year as a professional artist. He is an impressionist easily identified by his signature use of strong, bold colour. Fluent in watercolours, acrylics, and oils, Mike has had more than seventy exhibitions and produced twenty-five-plus murals throughout North America. He enjoys the creative process and is an avid map reader and a pilot—a person with a great sense of adventure. His passion for travel and history has led him to a diverse range of subject matter.

Svob’s paintings are held in many private and corporate collections throughout the world. His work has been featured in International Artists Magazine, Magazin’Art, Artist Magazine, and American Artist. His paintings and ideas about painting can be found in several art books. He studied at the University of Western Ontario and is a past president and senior member of the Federation of Canadian Artists.
