Olaf Schneider

Born in 1964, Olaf Schneider acquired a strong foundational education in art while working full time at age 21 with one of Canada's leading outdoor advertising companies Mediacom. His art education has continued with independent and occasional formal studies in pictorial expression and oil painting. The resulting works display his affinity for the classical tradition. More particularly, each piece represents an intense exploration and refinement of his personal pictorial sensitivities; especially as they relate to beauty, form, light and shade, composition, color, and craftsmanship. Olaf is a prolific Canadian painter inspired by the power and diversity of the northern landscape. Schooled at the Ontario College of Art, Sheridan College, Olaf's paintings are widely exhibited in Toronto, Quebec, Alberta, British Columbia and throughout North America, as well as in Germany, the Netherlands, and Italy. He has been heralded with top honors in International Artist Magazine. Member of the Portrait Society of of America, Oil painters of America, Portrait Society of Canada and an Elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists.
