Ihor Todoruk wall art is a compelling expression of this celebrated Quebec artist. Ihor Todoruk forged his creative expertise in his early 20’s with hands-on management of fine art & design production projects and special stage promotions in Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal. When he was 18, he joined the Canadian Air Force. After spending time in San Francisco and then Calgary, Alberta, he moved to Vancouver in 1969 and formed a small book publishing venture with Vancouver writer Stephen Gross, producing three books: Yankees Gone Home, 555-1212, and Multiple Majic Media. In 1969, he began editing and publishing a “Rock Culture” magazine, POPPIN, which became the third largest circulating Rock Music magazine, behind Rolling Stone and Detroit’s Cream.
In 1970, after meeting with Jim Morrison of the Doors, he produced the Jim Morrison Film Festival. This premiere event featured the first and only public showing of Highway, Jim Morrison’s only feature length motion picture. The following year he created and produced a summer long Vancouver Underground Film Festival featuring films by artist Andy Warhol, Jean Luc Godard and others. Ihor moved to Montreal and, in 1972, formed Studio 123, an art and design company located in the historic district of Old Montreal. Studio clients included music and entertainment industry companies such as A&M, Polygram, London, Capital and the Canadian Recording Industry Association, Alliance Viva Films, The National Film Board, and Concordia University. In 1977 the Canadian Recording Industry Association commissioned Ihor to produce an historical illustrated print documentary of the first 100 years of recorded sound, called Century of Sound. Through his design company, he worked with Canadian and US artists & designers and art agencies in Montreal, New York and Tampa.
Ihor not only paints on canvas, or antique board, but also uses the latest computer technologies available to him to produce fine art images. Ihor opened Galerie Harwood, in Hudson Quebec, featuring living contemporary Canadian and International artists. Ihor lives and works in his lower Laurentiens studio, where he continues to produce his work. And now you can enjoy Ihor Todoruk wall art in your home or office.
