Chris Kuzmanovich is a Calgary based artist by way of the Northwest Territories. Chris studied interior design at Mount Royal College and worked within this field for several years before establishing his own design firm, CVK, in 2007. Concurrently while working on design projects, Chris began to create a body of work on canvas and panel. He is known for his palette of bold, bright colours and moody abstraction, often with the suggestion of architectural forms. His work can be found in numerous private collections across Western Canada.
Kuzmanovich’s extensive design background informs his current body of work – paintings that suggest abstracted architecture as indicated with scratches, areas of bold colour, and surface exploration. The work transitions from dark and sombre to bold and contrasting colours, acting as a visual documentation of his daily experiences and a reflection of the intangible.
