Swan, Anselmo

b. 1970
Anselmo Swan, a resident of Vancouver, primarily works with oil on panel in his depictions of mundane objects as a reflection of contemporary culture. The isolation of objects and the attention to detail make the work as much about the shape and form of the object as it’s significance, whether great or small. Anselmo attended the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver, received a scholarship from Malaspina Printmakers Society and continued his studies at Simon Fraser University. He has exhibited with galleries in Vancouver and Los Angeles and his work has been featured in local and national publications.
