Peter G. Goral
Born in Lancashire in the U.K., Peter has always held a passion forpainting and drawing wildlife, birds and the people around him. Early on in his life, he competed locally in Rossendale Valley where he grew up, winning competitions and the favour of those around him as he created impressions of life as he saw it.
Together with his parents and siblings, he emigrated to Canada in 1967 where his art, although still a passion, took a backseat in his life as he worked to support and help build a new life for the family.During quiet times, Peter continued to build on his talent and his love for art until the Summer of 2009, when his creative juices were promoted to the forefront once again. Throughout this life-imposed sabbatical, he has maintained his passion for the subject matter he lists as "Life's Impressions".
His stylings are made up of an interpretation of the actual subject using pallet knife and acrylics in an aggressive application that is fed by his high-energy personality, commonly introducing what Peter refers to as a "Wild Card Color" not ordinarily associated with the subject, resulting in vibrant, illuminated works that stimulate those that view them.
Thoughts about art and community:
Toronto bears a huge International melting pot of remarkable talent, and I am extremely pleased to see that this community comes together to sustain the culture and it's legacy. I enjoy supporting and being a part of this precious piece of our heritage.
