Honouring a Lifetime of painting
Robert Genn's formal training as an artist included the University of Victoria, the University of British Columbia and the Art Center School in Los Angeles, California. Recognized as one of Canada’s most accomplished painters, his work is well known internationally. He is perhaps best known for his work on the West Coast and in the Rocky Mountains. Robert’s technique included a tradition of strong design with patterns of color and form, with a pervasive sense of personal style. Most of Robert’s later work was in acrylic, although he also did considerable work in oils, watercolour, and silk screen printing.
