bio

Kirk Mechar was born in Canada in 1967. Widely recognized for large scale “flower” paintings created using richly, textured oil paint, Mechar works in a variety of media including sculpture and photography and incorporates a range of materials alone and in combination, including, wood, marble dust, glass and clay. Mechar’s work is defined by a continuing interest in pattern, particularly as reflected in both abstract and figurative works which are constrained  by the traditional disciplines imposed by line, colour and scale.

He attended Humber College in Toronto for design and is a self-taught painter.  He has been represented by Edward Day Gallery in Toronto and Buschlen Mowatt Gallery in Vancouver.  He currently lives and works in Nevis, West Indies and Canada.
