MEDIUM: Oil Paint | Soft Pastel Art
SPECIALTY: ✔ Plein Air 

Dalibor is a professional artist and full time Art Professor at Centennial College in Toronto, Canada. His passion for travel and discovery of new places and cultures merges beautifully with his love for outdoor painting. He specialises in teaching beginner and advanced students, showing them how to simplify complex scenes and infuse them with life and mood. He works in oil paints, soft pastels and drawing to achieve art that is full of light and colour.

Dalibor is a classically trained artist, who has worked in the animation and illustration field for the past 20 years. He has taught art workshops and has exhibited in Canada, US, Europe, Korea, China and India. He is an award winning artist who regularly competes in local and international plein air festivals.

“Being fully present in the moment, immersing myself in the act of direct painting on location is for me a form of meditation. The ordinary becomes unique, space and time distinct through light, atmosphere and emotion.”
