About the artwork

Rise form artworks is the latest venture by canadian artist john ovcacik

as an outdoors enthusiast and self-taught artist, john has tried his hand at watercolour, pen and ink, pencil and printmaking, but has worked exclusively in acrylic painting for almost 20 years.


his current work draws from diverse traditions: the simplicity of primitive art forms, the visual texture found in printmaking techniques, and the objective depiction of representational imagery. reflecting a deep love and fascination for the natural world, these images combine reverence with a sense of humour. inspired by john's passion for fly fishing, the work has quickly evolved to encompass a broad range of subject matter.


a two-time recipient of the elizabeth greenshields foundation award, john has had his work accepted into major juried shows, including the canadian society of painters in watercolour, arts for the parks, and the toronto outdoor art exhibition.


john's work can be found in numerous private and corporate collections, including those of bell canada, jetform corporation, edc, merrill lynch canada and the royal canadian mint.

Fly portraits

my work as an artist and my passion for fly fishing inevitably resulted in some fishing-specific images. some of those efforts focused on the fly patterns that are tied by hand to suggest the insects and other prey that fish feed on.
