Vic Atkinson - An Artist of many Talents

Bridge to the City. Scheduled to appear on the January cover of the Canadian Journal of Rural Medicine.

Vic Atkinson

Vic Atkinson brings to his personal life palette a rich variety of life experiences.
His background has been in animated film with some set design, live
action and commercial art as well as serious painting. Vic paints in acrylics and oils, and does some egg tempera work as well.

Vic was born in London England, and he attended the notable Camberwell School of Fine Art. He later emigrated to Canada, where he presently lives in a small town near Ottawa, Ontario.

Vic had his own animation production company for ten years and produced many half-hour award winning television specials. He also produced a 25 minute
segment for the Columbia Pictures film "Heavy Metal", which is now
a cult classic.

It is interesting to note that Vic worked with Bill Mason on an animated series for Crawley Films, called the 'Wizard of Oz'. Bill was a respected film maker and was featured in the Friday, Dec. 4th, 2009 issue of this blog.

Vic's works are represented by Artrax Gallery in Port Credit, Ontario.

  1. While he does beautiful classic landscapes and such, I think I like his abstracts best - they look like stained glass!
